Question about Whirlpool WED5521SQ Electric Dryer
If you have no heat - always start with the thermal fuse. I found mine after removing the back panel. Unplug the power to the dryer! Test to see if the fuse has continuity, if not it must be replaced (they can't be repaired). If you don't have a continuity tester, use a jumper wire to close the connection between the two wires coming to it. Plug your dryer back in and if your dryer heats normally you've found the problem and it's a very inexpensive item (I found one on eBay less than $4.00). The dryer can be operated for a short time with the jumper you just used, until the part arrives. But, don't leave the fuse off, it is a very important safety feature, to detect overheating and avoiding a potential fire!
