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.

Roper dryer takes 2 cycles to dry clothes. How do I look at the heating element? OR since it is still heating, just not quickly enough, could it be something else? OR does it have 2 heating elements?


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.

Tip

How to Replace Heating Element from a Maytag Dryer?


The procedure is as follows:--- 1) First 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 unit.
3) The 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.
This will help. Thanks.

After replacing the heating element in lte5243dq the thin twin dryer it still doesn't work


http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=706288&ModelNum=LTE5243DQ0&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=3&Selected=AJ4UQMWK&Position=4&mfg=Whirlpool&Type=&Mark=3

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.

I have a Whirpool Dryer model 3LEN 2000PW1 It runs but does not heat?? Four years old. Could it be the heating element?


Hello there:
Heating element Often 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 fuse On 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.)

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 heavy duty thin twin broken heater, the dryer just stop heating, please help I can repair my self, unit is about 6 years old and it works grat


Hi, thanks for the inquiry.

If it's a gas dryer, it's most likely a thermal fuse. Basically, the voltage has to go through the fuse before it goes to the ignitor.

If it's an electric, it's either the heating element or the thermal cut-off, most of the time.
You'll proabably have to get to the element and fuse from the back. What I would do is just tilt the entire unit forward, if it's in a tight closet.

Best of luck and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

No heat


If this is a Whirpool model dryer (this includes Kenmore, Estate and Roper), the heating element will be located on the lower right hand side with the back panel removed. If the dryer does not have removable back panel, the heating element will be located inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side.

Since you posted no brand name or model number, I'm going by the heading you posted this under. If your dryer model is different, please post back with your correct information so that I may assist you better.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this answers your question.

Whirpool LGQ8800JQ1 no heat


The thermal safety is located on the top of the heating element canister and there is a fuse located on the blower assembly. It is about 1.5 inches long and has two small gauge wires going to it. Hope this helps...

First make sure you have power to the unit through the plug. If power is present, then you most likely have an open Thermal Safety Fuse. The Thermal is a Safety feature that shuts off the power to the Heat Element in the event the Blower is not blowing or the Lint Vent becomes clogged not allowing air to flow over the Heat Element. NO air flow, Heat Element over heats, Thermal Safety Fuse opens, power shuts off. If the Thermal Safety Fuse is open find out why. Was the blower not working? Was the Lint Filter clogged? ( Lint Filter should be cleaned after each use to assure continued air flow.) Was Lint Vent Clogged? This is the Vent Hose that goes from the Dryer to the outside of your house. It should be checked for free air movement. The next thing-- Could be a defective Timer or Control Module.
Find where you lost power and WHY!!
