Dryer won't shut off but has no heat


I'm posting this for my sister. She has a whirlpool dryer that won't shut off on its own. It also has no heat coming out. It's not that old - couple of years maybe. Ideas?

That was my first thought too, but would that have anything to do with the no heat issue? What should she look for if it is the timer?

Timer runs the whole machine, it does the cycles which in turn call for and turn off heat, ect. Since this is a fairly new machine, I would look at the heating element as a last point. Might be worth just calling a repairman.

Most units have a heater safety button, ie if the filter is 100 % clogged it will trip the button and not burn the element out.....If you have not heat, this will be your problem for sure...not sure where it is on your unit, myne is where the dorr opens...could be internal.?
