I can not find a diagram using your model number.
However, most Speed Quenn dryers have 2 screws on the bottom right and left sides of the front panel.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the 2 screws.
Lift the panel forward and disconnect the door switch wires.
Reemove the belt and drum to access the heater circuit.

My dv210ae dryer runs but won' heat

It's likely your heating element has overheated and the ni-chrome heater wire has been severed. There are other potential root causes, but this is most likely the root cause. There are two temperature sensors in the heating element sub-assembly, one or both or which may have failed.

The most likely cause of heating element overheating is a clogged vent. To avoid future overheating, check the vent regularly and remove any lint build-up.

The heating element, the heating element sub-assembly, and the entire galvanized metal heating sub-assembly (which includes the two temperature sensors) are available for purchase. Here are examples of all three:

Before purchasing any component, verify model and part numbers match your dryer.

Before starting your repair, make sure the dryer is disconnected from its electrical source either by unplugging it or turning off its breaker. The dryer is heavy, so be careful lifting. Parts inside the dryer may be sharp to the touch, so be careful reaching inside. Use of gloves is recommended.

The heating sub-assembly is accessible from the front, behind the door sub-assembly, but may need to be removed from the rear. Follow this YouTube example-- it should be similar to your dryer even though it may not be exactly your model. Be sure to notice wires and cable connections, and be sure to reassemble just as you disconnected. It's wise to take photos as you go so that you can recall how parts and wires go back together.

If the heating element is severed, obviously it will need to be replaced. If the mounting insulators are in good shape, you might choose to just replace the wire. As in this video, some skill is needed to disassemble the heating wire from the mounting plate. If one or more insulators have been damaged, the entire heating wire sub-assembly should be replaced. Or, as listed above, the entire sub-assembly can be purchased, which includes the two temperature sensors. This will simplify the project (but cost a bit more). The temperature sensors should be in normally-on condition, going to open state at temperature set limit. You can check the sensors with an ohm meter. If either is open at room temperature, that sensor has failed and also needs to be replaced.

Make the repairs warranted by your investigation, re-assemble the heating sub-assembly being careful to match photos you've taken, re-install in the dryer, re-assemble the dryer vent, door and top, re-connect the dryer to its electrical source, then test the dryer. The temperature should quickly rise within the dryer drum.

Hello there and welcome to Fixya :
This is a fairly common problem with these whirpool dryers.
I will provide you with the 7 most common things to look for
which contribute to the symptom Dryer won't stop are listed below. Check or test each item and watch any available videos. If you are still unable to solve the problem you may need to do additional research and troubleshooting.
Show all parts for model GEW9878LW0 For the symptom you selected, these are the most common parts or causes, ordered by the likelihood of fixing the symptom.
othercausesandconditions.jpg Air Flow Problem The most common problem when a dryer is slow is when the vent is clogged. If the dryer is slow, check the vent from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house. If that is clogged, clear it completely and test the dryer. If the dryer is slow after the vent is cleaned, clean the internal ductwork of the dryer. This will require some disassembly.
blower-wheel-694089-00918612.jpg Blower Wheel

Item # 686172
The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft.

The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

My dyrer doesn't turn on. It just stop working.

Check the following to address this issue.

No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Heating elements on gas dryer

Okay...the write-up you read was advice for ELECTRIC dryers. The model number you provided is for a GAS dryer. You have a burner assembly in your dryer instead of a heating element. The likely culprit on a gas dryer that no longer heats, is the igniter. The following link will shed some light on how the igniters work:

I know the link is for advice on how to replace an igniter in a gas range, but the theory of operation is the same. Read the top portion of the link I provided.

The igniter will become weak with age and will either stop glowing, or will glow, but not draw the necessary current to open the gas safety valve. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from entering the dryer cabinet without ignition. I would recommend you check first to see if the igniter is glowing. You can see an illustration of what I'm talking about by going to and entering your model number. If you look under the "Burner,Valve" heading on the next page, the igniter is listed as item 74. Let me know what you find.
