    I have aheat problem also, I was told if you are getting any heat, it is NOT your element. I believe mine is 1 of 3 sensors that control the heat. it is not drying right. This is an electric Dryer. Does this sound right.

    Thanks

Dryer won't heat


The first thing to check would be the power, I know that sounds silly since the drum turns but your electric dryer uses 240 volts to heat and only 120 to run the drum. Check the circuit breaker or fuse by turning it off completely then back on.

If that does not fix the problem you have one of two components that have failed. Either the thermal cutoff or the heating element. The cut off is a small two wire heat sensing switch located just above the heat element. They are both accessible from the back

My dryer wont heat up or shut down


It's not heating up because the heating element is broken and should be replaced. It won't shut down because the thermostat isn't sensing heat and continues to run while expecting heat. So replacing the heating element should get it running properly.

Whirpool dryer 10 years old is still heating but taking very long to dry clothes. Checked dryer vent and it is clear. Will heating element help?


If your heating element is still heating up the cause lies elsewhere. Filter for dryer both at the base of dryer and filter location . If you are getting heat then airflow is the problem. how is the fan motor in front of heating element

Whirlpool Dryer, Heats up, but will not spin.


Thermal fuse , is the small white plastic piece on the blower box . That , keeps the dryer from running . Thermal cut-off , is the small thermostat on the burner (element) box , which would keep the dryer from heating .

Can't find the heating element on my admiral dryer ade7005ayw


Normal 0 Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the element on the right hand side. Plug the dryer in to test to see if there is 240V going to the element posts. If there is voltage, but no heat, change the element. If it does not, you need to test the thermostats for continuity. If any of the thermostats are open, replace it. I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

How old is the dryer? The heating element is probably no good.
It's possible to fix it yourself. Make sure it's unplugged before you start. You might want to check a parts store, or online to see what the heating element would cost. when this goes bad, the dryer will still spin, and the heat stops instantly. It's a little tricky taking the panels off, but there's not too much to a dryer. An electric motor that powers a belt to make it spin, the heating element, metal sides, top and bottom. Good Luck!
