You can remove the back panel everything is acessed from ther, with a meter you can check for continuity of all the thermoats and heater assy, first one to check is the thermal overload fuse locate d in the middle of unit "white " usually blows when excessive temp is detected( blocked vent)

Dryer quit heating suddenly.


The fuse is located on the blower housing and if it was blown the dryer would not run at all. The limits is mounted on the heater housing and that could kill the heat as well as a blown heating element. I worked on a similar dryer not long ago with a heating problem and did a video:

Clothes Dryer Doesn't Heat


Check for a blown thermal fuse or faulty heating element. Both components can be checked using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. The thermal fuse is about one inch long and is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Everything seems to work, but can not get heating element to work


The first thing to check is for a burned thermal fuse. It is about one inch long and is located inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a blown fuse and it will need to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Air not heating up in whirlpool dryer


A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

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.

Kenmore Electric Dryer will not Heat


Define checked everything. Usually when your dryer is not heating but blowing air its one of three things...
1. Thermal fuse in dryer
2. Thermistor in the dryer
3. Heating element in dryer

You need a signal meter with continuity check to accurately test all three componets. Normally the fuse and thermistor are in a set and cost less than 25 bucks. They are easy to replace if you are good with taking things apart. If the element is bad then you need to make sure your lint trap and exhaust hose are clean and kept clean. That is the main cause of the element burning up when it gets lint collected inside the dryer cavity.

In a pinch if the element is bad you can simply find where the metal has broken and try bending the rod so that it touches. The element has to be one solid piece so if there is breaks try and connect them back together until a new one can be purchased.

Please unplug the dryer before doing anything mentioned above.

Hope this helps

There is no heat


Disconnect power and access your dryer fuses. Check and test your fuses for "continuity". Most likely, a white thermal fuse. Can possibly be your ignitor or heat element as well. Is your dryer gas or electric?
