First clean out the exhaust vent tubing entirely and then try it. It may heat up very hot if thoroughly cleaned out. A moister sensor detects any lint build up and put the burner into a check mode that prevents home fires in the exhaust vents

Whirlpool dryer bad heating element AGAIN


Hi Warren Fink
Try this solution to your problem

A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Dryer still runs it just isn't getting warm


The heating element is wired in series with a thermal cut-off and a high-limit thermostat both located on the heater housing.The thermal cut-off blows open when the high-limit thermostat fails to cycle off in order to regulate the heating element temperature. When the thermal cut-off is blown, power to the element is cut-off and the dryer will not heat. Replacing both thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat if the former is indeed blown.

Roper electric dryer will not heat after replacing heating element and thermal fuse. what's wrong.


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when the dryer stops heating and the thermal fuse is not part of the heating circuit, it is part of the motor circuit. The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

Dryer runs fine, does not heat?


Remove the back and on the right side is the heater assembly. Attached to this assembly is a safety thermal fuse at the top and a heat limiter thermostat at the bottom. The fuse, thermostat or heater may have failed. The MOST common reason for any of these parts to fail is a clogged or restricted exhaust. Be sure to clean/inspect the exhaust system or the dryer will fail again.

Whirlpool dryer with no heat


Is the igniter glowing yellow? Look inside the pilot access hole and see if it lights up. If it lights up then goes off, it may be the thermal fuse. Once this blows, it has to be replaced. There are pictures all over the internet on the location of this part.
Good luck.
