The thermal fuse (aka thermal limit switch) is probably blown. It is not a good idea to bypass this fuse -- if the dryer overheats, it will not cut off the heating element -- fire is likely in that scenario. If you want to troubleshoot the problem, let me know,

I have a whirlpool estate dryer and it will not heat up


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Replaced ignitor, still no heat


if igniter is good, do you hear 2 clicks when it starts, one then one about 10 to 20 sec later?  if not, the coils on the gas valve are bad or gas valve is bad.  coils can be replaced separately from valve to save a lot of money...

Dryer does not heat up anymore. It is an electric dryer.


Check the heating element or coil inside the dryer, you should check it visually for breaks, but a much better way is with an ohmmeter with the machine unplugged from the outlet. Touch one lead on each of the coil connectors you should have low resistance, if it is open then replace the coil. hope this helps. good luck

Estate gas dryer heats up but then flame goes out after around 30 seconds. Replaced the gas valve coils and the thermal fuse, but problem continues


It's likely the problem with the airflow. High limit thermostat is turning the gas valve off. Clean/replace the vent and lint trap.Check if there is anything stuck to the grille inside the dryer.

Estate dryer electric, heating element gets hot but motor does


shut off power to dryer. take front off dryer,remove belt from motor and idler pully (if there is one) try turning the motor shaft by hand. if it doesn't turn ,take off back of dryer and remove blower housing and see if anything is blocking the impellers.. if not any of these then you may have to get professional help it may be a bad motor or timer
