Hi

Ok if the heater and control board are fine then all this leaves is the dryer NTC (temperture sensor)

What you need to do is open the condenser door at the bottom and remove the condesner.
Then look to the right were the condenser goes and you need to remove that plastic panel on the front.

With this removed you will see the NTC. Check the wires on there are fine and if so then you need to test it with a multi meter. It should be around 20 Kohms. If its faulty then this will need to be replaced.

As there isnt much in there which will stop the heat. Only the heater, control board and the NTC. Thats all that controls the heating side.

Check that and see what you find and let me know

Regards

ntc is reading ok. what shud reading on sensor/ t-stat on heater b reading?

Expert:  Daniel replied 3 years ago.
Ok looking at the heater you will see 2 thermostats. The one with the red button is the rest thermostat and the one below is an NTC so it will give a reading of about 7 Kohms. If you are just getting a resistance reading then its faulty and the heater will need to be replaced.
