Re: air not heating up in whirlpool dryer
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

if you saying the fan wont blow it may need a fan motor not uncommon it might be a speed switch if it has one some time you can hook a wire on the back of the speed switch plug in to get it on high use a 14 gauge wire or bigger a small jumper bent in a loop with the rubber peeled off the ends and shove them in the switch plug find the 12 volt ht wire on the plug with light or vom then try the other wires one at a time til fan runs with ignition switch on
Toget proper heat, keep your temp setting at 30+ degree and also mode in "heat"position. If still no heat, check your heating sensor for closed circuit by anOHMs metre.It it's with RV, check power to RV
does everything shut off or just heat
if its just heat but motor works and drum is turning than-quickest sulotion would be cleaning the vents from the dryer and out through the wall or window whereever your vent goes.
the reason it turns off is because it has a limit thermostat that turns off at about 150 degrees so when the vents are clogged the hot air cant escape anywhere so it stays in dryer and overheats quickly
take off the vent in the back than turn on your dryer if it doesnt turn off clean your vents
if everything stops working than you most likely have a bad motor
feel free to reply with any questions
If the heater core is good and the blower works, the valve doors may not be opening and closing properly to direct air towards the proper vents. This may be because something has fallen in and is obstructing their movement. The actuating motors may not work properly, or the linkages that connect them to the mode doors may be worn or improperly adjusted. You can get a look at the mechanisms by removing the driver side knee bolster (two screws) and a lower trim panel on the side of the center console.
Be careful fiddling with the linkages. Everything is plastic and easy to break, and replacing the heater box requires removing most of the dash.
