The dryer did'nt heat up

changing the thermostat was incredibly easy. I had to put new connectors on the ends of 2 of the wires because they burnt up.

No heat. Spinning and blowing fine.

Extremely easy! I used this website's part diagrams and videos to find out where the parts were in the dryer. I only needed a 1/4" socket on a screwdriver handle to remove the back of the dryer and the same socket for the screws holding most of the parts on (one needed a phillips screwdriver). I didnt have a ohm tester, so I ordered the heating element, cycling thermostat, thermal fuse and 250f Thermostat, knowing I could return the one(s) I didnt need. Replaced them all and guess what...it still didnt work! So I read some other people's comments and found out there was one more part I hadnt ordered that might be the problem...the THERMAL CUT OFF KIT. It has the 250F thermostat PLUS another (different) Thermal cut off fuse, that attaches several inches above the heating element. I ordered that part, got it the next day, and the Thermal cut off fuse that was in the kit (not available separately) ended up being the solution to my problem! The wire to it was actually fried, so the extra connectors in the kit were perfect, and I just cut and stripped the wire a little and put on the new connector, and the dryer works great.
