Hi, if this is an electric dryer and is a whirlpool model, the element is located in a housing on the right side (looking at the back)
You can run the dryer and check with voltage meter to see if it is getting 240V. If there is voltage, replace the element. If there is not voltage, check the thermostats and the fuse for continuity. If they do not have continuity, replace them.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

    Yes this is the same dryer.

    The element should have two red wires going to it in the lower right hand corner. If the element is ok, check the thermostats on the housing of both the element and the blower.

Dryer not drying


another user's Q&A for the same issue try that or call may tag, they are supper helpful

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

8574d88.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

d5b5af3.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
77d6bd4.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

    Where is the dryer fuse located on a whirlpool dryer


    Hi garycimbala9
    The fuses/thermostats/Thermistor will be located in the back of the dryer on the air tube where they montitor heat and causes the element to turn on and off...cycle.
    you will have to remove the back panel and then look for the air tube, there will be "roundish things" attached at different points with wires running to them...remove the wires( make sure you mark down on a piece of paper the color of the wire to the terminal.
    Check each fuse with an volt/ohm meter for continuity...they should have continuity to be ok, if they don't then they are faulty.

    Will not heat


    If the model number you posted this question under is correct, your heating circuits are comprised of the following components:

    1. Heating Element
    2. Thermal Cut-Out
    3. Hi-Limit Thermostat
    4. Internal Bias Thermostat
    5. Thermal Fuse

    You can access them by UNPLUGGING the dryer and removing the rear panel.

    As viewed from the rear of the dryer, your Heating Element will be located on the RIGHT hand side inside a heater box. The Thermal Cut-Out will be located on the outside of the heater box at the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals.

    The Internal Bias Thermostat and Thermal Fuse are two small components mounted on the Blower Fan housing on the lower LEFT hand side.

    You can refer to the following parts illustration for assistance:

    http://pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php


    The components are listed as follows:

    Heating Element (Item 17)
    Thermal Cut-Out (Item 6) - This is a replacement kit. Includes Item 15 when ordering.
    Hi-Limit Thermostat (Item 15)
    Internal-Bias Thermostat (Item 20)
    Thermal Fuse (Item 19)

    If your dryer is NOT configured this way, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the door opening) and let me know.

    If you need assistance on how to troubleshoot a dryer, you can refer to this link:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574266-thorough_dryer_advice

    The MOST common causes of heat related problems:

    1. Blown Thermal Cut-Out.

    2. Missing 1/2 your input voltage at the wall receptacle (the dryer will still run with half the voltage missing, but won't heat - double check your source voltage at the receptacle and/or your circuit breakers.

    3. Bad power cord, causing 1/2 the input voltage to be missing.

    4. Blown heating element.

    Read through all the information provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

    NOTE: Take all resistance readings with the dryer UNPLUGGED and the component under test isolated (meaning disconnect any wire leads to ensure the accuracy of your readings).

    On the Kenmore series 90 electric dryer, where is the thermal fuse located.


    The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.

    The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.

    The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.

    DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS:

    If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.

    If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.

    If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.

    Thermal Fuse/No Heat- Where is it??


    We were drying pillows and the thermal elements tripped. I took the panel off of the back of the dryer. The screwdriver uses a hex head (Lee Valley Tools). There are 3 thermal switches. Pushing the button at the center of each switch resets the unit. Our Miele is now running again which saves me a $200 service call.

    How do I get to the thermal fuse on Whirlpool electric dryer LER4634EQ0


    All the heating and temperature control components are located in the back of the dryer. To access, unplug the dryer and remove the exhaust vent hose. Turn the the dryer around so you can view the back and remove the back panel. With the panel removed, the component locations are as follows:

    Right-Hand Side:

    1. Heating element - located inside the heater box. If bad, the dryer will run, but will not heat. A good reading is about 9 to 13 ohms.

    2. Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) - located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. If bad, the dryer will run, but will not heat. A good reading is a short (0 ohms).

    3. Hi-Limit Thermostat - located on the outside of the heater box adjacent to the heating element terminals. It works in conjunction with the TCO to help regulate the drum internal temperature. A good reading is a short (0 ohms).

    NOTE: If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are found to be defective, it is recommended that you replace BOTH components to prevent premature failure. These two components are commonly sold as a set.

    Left-Hand Side:

    1. Thermal Fuse - located on the blower fan housing. It is a small white plastic looking component with two wires attached. If defective, the dryer will not run at all. If the component is good it should read a short (0 ohms).

    2. Internal Bias Thermostat - located on the blower fan housing adjacent to the Thermal Fuse. It has four wires attached to it.

    NOTE: All resistance checks should be performed with the component terminal wires disconnected to prevent false readings.

    If you have any questions, you can refer to searspartsdirect.com for some helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you. The components I mention are listed under the "Bulkhead" heading as follows:

    Item 6 - TCO/Hi-Limit Thermostat replacement kit
    Item 15 - Hi-Limit Thermostat sold separately
    Item 17 - Heating Element
    Item 23 - Thermal Fuse
    Item 24 - Internal Bias Thermostat

    If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    pry the top up at the corners and remove attaching screws for the front panel and remove carefully. Now you should be able to see the canister that contains the heat element and the thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is bad you also need to replace the high limit thermostat switch which is located on the canister itself and check that the heating element is not broken anywhere throughout the coil.
