Okay, you need to check to see if you are getting full voltage, see your dryer will run on 120 but if it is not getting hot, then you are losing 120.

see from left side of outlet to middle you should get 120
from right side to middle you should get 120
total voltage is 220-240 volts in order for dryer to heat

Dryer does not heat but spins, what should i do?

Have you cleaned the vents out lately this could be your problem. The thermal fuse may be blown if so the operating thermastat may have caused it to blow. Check all thermastats , the thermal fuse, the high temp cutoff and the heating element. Be sure and clean the vents inside and out sometime something will get in the fan housing and slow the fan down or stop it.

Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite electric dryer model#

If your fuse is blown could be that your operating thermastat is not shuting off as soon as it should. Try replacing the fuse and the operating thermastat. The fuse would probaly blow before the hi limit.

Changing dryer belt

pop up the lid and you will notice a short heat element with blue thermastat, you will also notice 2 white wires that goes down to a fuse, that fuse is blown out, it is round on the side of the element housing. you need to get a Maytag fuse kit which will come in the package as a thermastat blue in color and 2 fuses, you will only use one of the fuses, one is for a gas and one is for electric, pink dot for electric, yellow dot for gas.

Dryer turns on but there is no heat. Is there a fuse  for the heating element? How to get to the heating element to change it if needed? Model DE309 Seie 01 Serial No. 733699   EC

Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal switch, in the element circuit,

that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is

more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires

It is possible that your element has failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in
to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.

Whirlpool dryer not heating-

HI, To get to the element, you have to remove the lower front panel. You will see the element on the right side under the drum.
With the dryer running, you should have 240V the the two terminals on the element.
If there is voltage, replace the element. If there is no voltage, check the thermastats and the fuse. UNPLUG the dryer and check them for continuity. They should be closed.
This dryer is worth fixing. They are good ones.
I can help you with part #'s or answer more questions if yyou need.

I hope this helps

I am sorry to hear this, my name is Marc White, i am self employed and it seems as though you have a bad timer, bad timer will cause the timer not to go to the off position and blow your fuse......change your timer..
