Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

If you are sure the element is fine use a multi meter to be sure you have continuity from the element back to the timer there could be a thermal fuse. Be sure you have 120V and 240 volt at the plug. If there is a seperate heat setting switch check continuty there. If all is good there chances are it is the timer itself. Normally the dials inside will wear and they will no longer push contact on the micro switch to turn on the element. You can test this with continuity by going from the power into the timer and to the element, have someone spin the timer by hand. You may find it jump when the odd contact is made but it will likley not be consistant. Some timers can be pulled apart and a tiny glob of epoxy on the right contact point will extend the life of the timer by a few years.

SOURCE: DRYER RUNS BUT NO HEAT
The following link explains how to troubleshoot a dryer no heat problem:
Most dryer heat related problems are caused by clogged, or poorly installed vent ducting. Cleaning the lint trap is not nearly enough to maintain a dryer in proper condition. This actually causes the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. In the majority of the cases, the THERMAL CUT-OUT (TCO) is the components that fails first. This component is designed to trip like a fuse in an overheat condition. Once tripped, it cannot be reset and must be replaced. If your heating element was defective, then you may have more than just the element at fault. Read through the link I provided and see if you may have additonal problems. NOTE: If the TCO is defective, it is recommended that you replace the hi-limit thermostat at the same time. In many cases these components are sold as a set. Failure to replace them at the same time can lead to premature failure of any components you have replaced. Both components will be mounted on or near the heat box that the element is encased in. If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
