Dryer has no heat

Ohm the heating element for continuity but the problem probably
is a small football looking fuse on the left bottom.
There is a thermal cutoff at the top of the element case with 2 wires
Hook these two wires together for a check or ohm it for continuity. Same with the fuse. The dryer should run. unless it is a more tech problem.Also check for 230 volt at the wall and at the service cord at the dryer. A dryer will run on 115 but it will not heat.

For Dryer Model LER7646EQ1, dryer runs but no heat, It could be the heating element, the thermal fuse or other. Also the dryer has been running hot.I do not know how to remove the front panel

This sounds like a faulty thermal fuse or heating element. The fact that you said the dryer has been running hot could indicate that the heating element was making contact with the heater box or the high limit thermostat is faulty. Both the thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity means a faulty component. When necessary to replace a thermal fuse it is best to change the high limit thermostat as well. They will sometimes come as a set from a parts supplier. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Dryer spins, air flows through vent but isn't hot

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

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 .

The Heating elment is not going on

Hello. You have one of two problems. The heating element is bad. You can test this by removing the wires on the element and testing for continuity. If there is no continuity, replace the element. If there is, look around the element for a small thermal cutoff and remove the wires from it. Test it for continuity. If there is none, replace the cutoff. If you provide me with the model number I can get you the part numbers you need.

No heat on Whirlpool leq8000jq1. Is it just the heating element?

There are several things that could cause this problem, here are a few common things it could be, before doing any checks you should always make sure you disconnect your appliance from it's power source.
  1. bad heating element, you can check the heating element for continuity with an ohm meter.
  2. bad thermal fuse
  3. faulty power cord
  4. bad thermostat
  5. tripped breaker or blown fuse from house power supply, check to see if you have 240 volt supply to your appliance.
