Check the high limit switch located at the combustion chamber tube.  There is reset button.  Push the button.  If you hear a click, then it should work.

first check the fuse that powers the heating elements, and then check the resistance of the heating elements must be between 75 to 1200 ohms. I hope that the fans are operating

LER4634EQ2 whirlpool electric dryer. heating element,thermal cut-off, and high limit are all getting continuity, but heating element still will not heat up.

I know this might sound stupid but try this. Find your fuse box, locate the breaker that runs your dryer. Flip it off and then back on. If i'm correct, it will work. Everything on your dryer works off of one leg of the 220v. The other leg goes to the other side of the element. If you have a meter. check for 220v at the plug. Everything you listed is what makes the dryer heat other than the thermostats. Check the cycling thermostats like you did the other pieces. They look like the thermal cut off. They have two wires and they are round.

Kenmore 86870800 Will not heat...

The reason to this problem is due to the faulty heating element.
Once the dryer runs with no heat then there is a problem in the
heating element which cannot be repaired,so you need to
replace it.

Everything seems to work, but can not get heating element to work

The first thing to check is for a burned thermal fuse. It is about one inch long and is located inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a blown fuse and it will need to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer run won't heat up took off back panel don't know which tube contain element. if that not the problem don't know where to locate thermal fuse i need pictures diagram illustration

Hi, if this is an electric dryer and is a whirlpool model, the element is located in a housing on the right side (looking at the back)
You can run the dryer and check with voltage meter to see if it is getting 240V. If there is voltage, replace the element. If there is not voltage, check the thermostats and the fuse for continuity. If they do not have continuity, replace them.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

All you need to do is check the element for continuity with an ohm meter, if it has continuity the element is good. The dryer also will run on 110 volts of power but it needs 220 volts too run the element, so check and make sure all the conections on your cord are secure and that you have 220 at your wall outlet.
