Heating elements are located in the stainless steel tube attached to the control box. Older models from the early 1990's and 1980's were sometimes housed in a plastic case with a square 5 x 5 plate on the one end.

The dryer is not heating up or drying clothes. I read another person said it might be a burnt out heat element. How would we check for this.

With no heat comes no dry clothing. The heating element is not coming on, it could be the thermo cutoff(fuse) is burned out, that is alot less $ than the heater. You will need to check with a ohm meter, pull up veiw of part location by use of model# on any parts web page.

My electric dryer runs but no heat.

Hello there:
There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. 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.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
I will post the pictures of the heating element in a seperate post

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

We have amana ptacs with electric heat that are not heating is it the control board issuse?

You could have a high limit switch that has gone out or the heating element itself has burnt out. Both the heating element and high limit switch needs to be checked by a a/c tech due to both the location and the tools needed for the checks. The high limit switch is a safety device that prevents the unit from heating too much and possibly cause a fire. The possible cause for both of these problems is a blkockage of air flow through the system ( i.e. dirty filter, debris in the condensor coils) Good Luck on your repairs hope this has helped you some

Dryer is not heatring up

Sounds like your heating element may be burned out. On initial start, if the drum rotates, and you have blower air flow but no heat, I would suspect that the heating coil (element) has an "open" in it, i.e., it has literally burned through at one location in the coil, usually at or near one of the support insulators mounted on in the interior rear of the dryer. To replace, access to the interior of the dryer from the front is necessary. Take care installing the replacement coil in that any residual tension on the coiled element at any location along its length will, over time, result in premature, stressed-induced, thermal fatique of the coil. To avoid premature failure, all sections of coil between support insulators should be completely relaxed after installation and prior to initial heating.

Rowenta DX-8800 will not heat. Location of heating element?

The heating element is incorporated in the base. Rarely is the heating element bad. Its usually a connection or control problem. You cannot just replace the heating element.

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.
