Question about Dryers
I have a Whirlpool Duet Sport dryer about 6 years old that works but has no heat. The problem started because of too much lint. I have since replaced the heating element and both fuses on the side of the element and the thermistor and the thermal fuse. Still no heat.
You have done a nice job replacing all the things that it might be. Now you need to check continuity through all those things and from the source. Please make sure that it is unplugged when you do this.

SOURCE: whirlpool leb6000pq1 not heating
Thermostat controls heat. There is also a
motor centrifulgal switch, in the element
circuit, that the motor closes to insure
the motor is turning. Try another heat
setting. There is more than one
thermostat. You may have blown the
'thermal fuse' too, which requires
replacement. The elecment has a contact in
the 'timer' circuit too.
It is possible that your element has
Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint
filter and the exhaust vent tube and all
the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

Check thermistor with ohm meter, make sure you unplug unit first, make sure wires are removed from thermistor or you will read ohms thru the wiring. If thermistor checks ok, the you have a relay board problem. replace power board.

not being sarcastic, but, your sure you have 240 volts present at the unit? then check door switch heat section control of switch may be bad
