Question about Whirlpool Dryers
This problem is usually a blown thermofuse. Whirlpool Dryers usually have two thermostats or thermofuses on the heating element case. Unplug Dryer, remove one wire from the thermostat, and with an electrical tester you need to test for continuity or resistance between the two terminals on each thermostat. If you have no continuity on either thermostat, order new ones, they usually will only sell as a set. If their is any burned wiring you have to cut out the burned section and put on new wiring terminals. 99% of the time this is caused by a venting restriction, so make sure your vent is clean and not smashed or restricted, otherwise this problem will reoccurr. If your thermostats have continuity, test for continuity across your heating element terminals. If this doesn't take care of it let me know and I will walk you through other tests
