Ok if the dryer isnt getting hot at all then its possible its a fault with the thermostats.

To check you will need to remove the bulged cover on the back and from there take out the heater.

On top of the heater are 2 thermostats. Now you will need a multimeter and meter these thermostats out. If the 1 on the left is faulty then look in the middle of the thermostat and see if theres a small hole in the middle. If so get a pin and poke it in there and push down.

This will reset the thermostat. If theres no hole in there then the thermostat kit will need to be replaced to cure the problem.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
