HI, you need to rea=move the back panel to locate the element. It will be on the right side (looking at the back) in a housing. Check continuity on the element terminals. If it checks out ok, check all thermostats.
If I can assist you further, please let me know. I can also get you parts off my web site www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com

My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le


Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element. The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.

I HAVE A RED4340SQ1 ELECTRIC DRYER WHERE IS THE HEATING ELEMENT LOCATED


The heating element is located at the rear of the dryer behind the rear access panel. Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the rear access panel to the cabinet and remove the panel.

Your dryer seems not heating but it doesn't mean the heating element is busted. The problem is obviously in the heating circuit which is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components.

Blowing air no heat open up dryer at the bottom on the heating element there is a burnt looks like a small relay that be the problem for no heat


This problem is usually a blown thermofuse. Whirlpool Dryers usually have two thermostats or thermofuses on the heating element case. Unplug Dryer, remove one wire from the thermostat, and with an electrical tester you need to test for continuity or resistance between the two terminals on each thermostat. If you have no continuity on either thermostat, order new ones, they usually will only sell as a set. If their is any burned wiring you have to cut out the burned section and put on new wiring terminals. 99% of the time this is caused by a venting restriction, so make sure your vent is clean and not smashed or restricted, otherwise this problem will reoccurr. If your thermostats have continuity, test for continuity across your heating element terminals. If this doesn't take care of it let me know and I will walk you through other tests

All the vents have been cleared inside and outside, however, the dryer doesn't heat up, cold air blows and clothes don't get dried. Whirlpool LGR8620PG0


Sounds like your heating elements are not working. I would check to see if you have power to them first. To do this, the back of the dryer needs to be removed. If you have power to the elements then check for continuity by removing the power leads and connect the test leads, one to each end. If there isn't any continuity then replace the elements.

Dryer all is working but not heating


Hi!

First of all please check the thermal fuse. If it is out okay (by-passed or tested with an ohmmeter), then check the heating element. This can be checked by removing one of the wires on the heater and testing it with an ohmmeter. Or,removing the element and visually inspecting it.

Thanks
