Can you tell me if the dryer is producing heat

The machine is producing heat but "warm only".
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Hello again Olga.. sorry for the delay.

I am looking at the design of your dryer and also at the wiring diagrams.. There are several things that could be causing this.. Lets eliminate them starting with the easiest.

Can you tell me, have you made sure that the Delicates button (First button of the 3 options buttons to the right of the clock) is not lit

The Delicates button is not lit
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Ok Olga, thank you for looking..

In this case the problem will be related to one of the following three:

  1. Thermostat on the side of the heater
  2. NTC on the heater
  3. Element on the heater

Do you have a multimeter, or have someone who can assist who has one?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
