I looked up your heating element and it appears to be a plain jane variety from 50 years ago until now. It is mounted on the rear of the dryer and accessed by removing the rear dust cover. If you have a meter you could check the part for continuity if not then yank it out and take it to the parts store for verification.

    I have the exact model dryer. How in the fig do you take the element out? The sheath that the element fits into is fixed onto the frame and sits too far back into the dryer itself to just take it out without it bending.

Whirlpool dryer bad heating element AGAIN


Hi Warren Fink
Try this solution to your problem

A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.
Please take time to rate me

Electric dryer won't heat, maybe the heating element but before it stopped heating i cleaned the lint trap and something fell into it and i didn't notice and turned it on and could hear it hiting...


Sounds like you broke the heating element. Go to a local shop and get one. You may have also burnt the timer so after element you may need a new timer as it tells it to put power to it.
