I think on this one you can take off the bottom panel on the front and get access to the heating element.

My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le

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.

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.

Replaced bad high temp sensor and two loads later it is bad

It will continue to blow until you correct the blockage in the vent system.
It may be internal to the dryer or external to the connecting vent or outside vent.
Find it and fix it.

Whirpool duet dryer mod GEW9200LW0, working but not heating up

If it's starting and not heating it's usually one of two things. Take off the bottom panel. 2 screws hold it in place. If you have a way to check the element with a meter or something that would be ideal. It should read about a short circuit. The other part that goes out a lot is the thermal fuse located in the front on a pipe it's long and narrow. Here is a link to show where things are in there. Let me know if you have any more questions!retrieveModelDetails.pd?modelNumber=GEW9200LW0&productCategoryId=0151200&brandId=1198&modelName=DRYER

Whirlpool GEW9200LW0 Not heating

You need to remove the back panel first then with a multi meter the easiest way is to put the meter on continuaty test (beeps when contact is made then with the dryer switched of and unplugged put one probe on the one side of the element and the other on the other side if it beeps then your element should be ok if not one of two things (1) Your element is blown or (2) there should be a fuse around the area of the back support plate it may be a normal round fuse or a ceramic round fuse or what looks like a brown rectangular piece of plastic with a wire out each side test the fuse in the same way as you tested the element if blown replace if not then put in a element.
