I have an Admiral electric dryer that will not heat.It is only 1 1/2 old.The dryer was running fine but then it would just start shutting off.I would keep turning it back on and it would run for a while.Some time it would stay running but would take forever to dry clothes but most of the time it would shut off and everything felt wet and cold like it wasn't heating at all.Then i noticed that it would not start back up unless i had the timer set on air dry or cool.If i set it on any heat setting it will not run.It is driving me crazy!My husband checked the vent and it was not plugged.He took the back off the dryer and was looking at the heat coils.3 of the coils were all black.Does anyone know what the problem could be?Thanks!

... most of the time it would shut off
... it would not start back up unless i had the timer set on air dry or cool.If i set it on any heat setting it will not run
.... heat coils.3 of the coils were all black.

1) shut OFF before the Timer timed-out ? (may be bad Drum Motor)
2) may be bad Timer
3) there's only one continuous Heater coil
check and re-set your House Circuit Breakers for the Dryer
check for 240v Ac at the Dryer Cord Terminal Strip

I will have to get a tester and have my husband check some of these things,but we did have the timer off and noticed that it makes a rattly noise like something is broken inside.Is this normal for it to make this noise? Thanks!

Would the timer being bad cause it to only run in the cool setting and have no heat at all?

Well what about the heating element.When my husband opened the back of dryer to look at it,three of the coils were all burnt black but the rest of it looked new. Does this mean anything?Thanks!

Maybe, maybe not. You need a tester to properly diagnosis different components. Right now your just guessing. Your timer is probably bad and may be your only problem or you could have mulitple problems. Without testing your may wind up spending a lot of $ unnecessarily

Should have posted on your previous topic rather than starting a new one.

No, you cannot buy the switch, you have to buy the entire motor.
