Several things could cause that. Heating element, improper voltage, fuses and thermostats, timer, burnt wires, and motor are all possibilities.

SOURCE: I have a kitchenaid electric dryer. The model

check thermostat first (it have about 5-8 of them inside) check on continues. if this all of them fine, the you have to check heater on continues too.
also if this is electric dryer check if you have 240v in power outlet.
all of this involve some kind of experience with electricity do you should be careful or ask professionals www.appliancesrepairla.com

SOURCE: the dryer heat is not

it could be a hi or low thermistor or a run relay or the heater itself. All these parts you are able to check by conducting continuity tests on each piece, make sure the unit is unplugged when you conduct this test using a multimeter. Which ever piece showed having no continuity would be the one that was at fault make sure you also unplug one of the wires off each piece that you are conducting the test to or your test would be inaccurate if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future I await any further reply
p.s if this is a whirlpool or kenmore dryer i would first check the run relay found behind the rear panel of the machine Thanks again Rick

SOURCE: My kitchenaid dryer won't heat up.

First you have to determine whether you element is in the front or the back of the machine this is done easiest by looking at the front of the machine and seeingif its one complete piece or two. If its one, the element is in the back, if two its in the front. We'll start if its in the back first. Tools you'll need is: 1/4 nut driver or drill with 1/4 adapter and a multimeter with ability to check continuity. With the machine unplugged, remove the back cover of the dryer. Once done, the heating element will be located on the right hand side with two fuses on the housing of the element. Test the element and each fuse seperatly by removing the wires and checking for continuity on each component. All parts should show continuity, so if one doesn't its bad and needs to be replaced. Now if the element is the front everything is the same with the exception of you have to remove the lower portion, usually held on by 3-4 screws located underneath.

GAS dryer will operate, but not heat. No error codes showing


If not heating at all try this. Go to electrical panel box and find the breaker labeled Dryer. It should have 2 joined together levers. Turn it off and see that the dryer is OFF (this verifies you have the right one) Operate this breaker back and forth (on and off) at least ten times. Then put it in the ON position and try dryer again. If it works you have a bad (intermittent) circuit breaker. Get an electrical handyman to change the breaker. If changing the breaker does not fix it you may need an appliance repair person. Why this is. The cycling on and off of the heat at the dryer is rough on circuit breakers. If this dryer has been in place for some years and replaced another dryer it is probable that the circuit breaker was not changed. BTW the dryer functions (except heat) operate from one side of that 2 sided breaker, while the HEAT operates from both sides at HIGH current.

Dryer wont heat up


Is the circuit breaker a duel bullet type fuse (2) in the case for the 220 line? Try changing them and see what happens.

When the dryer is cold the heater flame will


The heating circuit is working perfectly except for the solenoid coils as indicated by the occasional glowing of the igniter but no gas is ignited. A gas valve closes as the solenoid coil weakens as it gets hot and does not open until it has cooled down. Replace both gas valve solenoid coils to get the dryer back into proper operation. The solenoid coils are part numbers 694539 and 694540 but also can be purchased as a kit here.
