Question about Whirlpool GEW9878LW Electric Dryer
When I first replaced the switches, the heating element would light up and seem to be working and heating fine. Now i still have wet cloths and the heating element will not turn on. I replaced the switches because the dryer and element would run for a few minutes and then the element would drop out and dryer continue to run and tumble.
This is one of only a few models with an electronic control board behind the contol panel nex to timer, is your power checks good, and all fuses nad thermos and heater have continuity as well i would look there, nice when theres an obvious blow out on the board but not always the case, it reails for about $60 part num,w10116566
