Re: whirpool twin thin no heat
Make sure you have 220 volts first at dryer. Heating element is on back of dryer. You'll need a test meter to see what's wrong unless you can see broken wire in element itself. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

First of all, unplug the unit before working on it. Be careful inside a fuse box, dangerous voltages. It's usually safe to change fuses or flip a breaker so long as your not in a wet location. Most dryers run the heating element on 220 volts, meaning you can either have one larger breaker or you could have 2 smaller breakers or fuses. If that is the case, possibly one of these breaker "legs" has tripped. Check that first. I would sooner think one of the heating elements are open or "not heating". I would look up the Roper Model number and search for the heating elements section. Some do have a thermal fuse but I think that would cause both elements to quit.

1)When the clothes are not getting dried but dryeris running. That means the heating element needs to be replaced. 2)First of all unplug the dryer from wall outlet. 3)The heating element is located in the cabinet. Insome models the cabinet is located in rear or in some models its located infront. 4)Remove the screws on the heating element cabinetto reach the heating element. 5)You will see wires connected to the heatingelement terminals. 6)Remove the wires from element using needle noseplier. 7)Then remove the object blocking the heatingelement with the screw driver. But in some models the heating element can be removeddirectly. 8)After removing the object remove the screwsholding the heating element. 9)Theheating will have to be moved a bit to come out easily.

The procedure is as follows:---
of all unplug the dryer from electric outlet for safety reasons. 2)Locate
the vent hose on the rear of the dryer and disconnect this hose from dryer
hose is mostly fixed in a metal clamp and the metal clamp is fixed by the screw.
Loosen the screw and remove the clamp and remove the hose. 4)The
heating element is located in the cabinet. 5)In
some models the cabinet is located at the rear of the dryer. And in some model
its located in the front of the dryer. 6)Locate
the heating element cabinet and remove the screws holding the cabinet. 7)You
will see the heating element now. There are wires connecting on the sides of
the heating element terminals. The wires are connected by removable connector. 8)Remove
the connector carefully from heating element with the help of needle nose plier. 9)After
the wires are removed from heating element’s terminals. Remove the screws
holding the heating element. 10)The heating
will have to be moved a bit to come out easily. Before removing the heating
element out. Please note down the position of old heating element. So while
placing the new heating element you don’t face any problem. 11)Remove the old heating element and insert the
new heating element. 12)Connect all
the wires as it were connected before. 13)Refit all the parts which you removed while removing
the old heating element in reverse
method. Take care you don’t miss any part fitting.
will help. Thanks.
Check your exhaust leading from your dryer because kinks and lint blockage are the leading cause for exhaust high temperature thermal fuse to burn out causing it to run with no heat. The thermal fuse for a front loading 110.88752791 is part number=> 3399849 Thermal Fuse
How to check these parts can be found on the same above pages, If rhe model I listed is not your model let me know and I will send you links to other models with the same model number as 110.88752791, Thank You Sea Breeze
Did you check the thermostat and the high limit thermostat. If not check them for continuity with a volt meter to confirm if they are good or not. Continuity good, no continuity bad. I posted the diagram above so you can locate the pieces in the machine.
Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element.
The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.
This is the most common locations for thermal fuses and heating element on Whirlpool,Kenmore,Estate dryers. check the continuity on all these thermal fuse and the element replace the one that has no continuty
Hello there: Heating elementOften
a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker
or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special
wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity
means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating
elements aren't repairable.Thermal fuseOn
many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside
the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually
embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the
fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing while the thermal cut-off is located on the heater housing. If the dryer is electric, runs but doesn't heat, the thermal fuse is not the problem; otherwise the dryer will not run because the thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and cuts power to the motor when it fails. The problem could the heating element, high-limit thermostat, thermal cut-off, or cycling thermostat. These components can be found in the blower housing and the heater housing depending on the model of the dryer. Specify the model number of the dryer for a more specific advice.
