Question about Dryers
The dryer run But it doesn't heat up I took the back off but I don't know in which metal tube is the element. If when I look at it and it not damage I need to find the thermal fuse which I don't know where it is either Do you have and pictures, diagram, or illustration.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:
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.
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.
