Whirlpool dryer overheats element high heat all heat settings


First check the heating element for short to frame. If it is not shorted remove the filter chute and clear it out. The control thermostat has 4 wires. 2 small wires come from the timer and power up a small heater inside the control thermostat making it shut down faster for perm press and knit cycles. Over time this bimetal inside the control stat won't shut down fast enough or not at all. If it won't shut down then the element will gl;ow reed and the base 250 stat on the heater chamber will shut down. If it fails to do so then the smaller one up top will trip at 300f. If it fails to trip or the filter chute is clogged the fuse skinny white plastic thing next to the control tstat will met and shut down operation.
Here is my HOME MOVIE ROPER DRYER NO HEAT
It shows the various components and how to check.

Two problems with Whirlpool Dryer


I would suspect the heating element. I bet you are asking why this clown is saying that when you already told him that on high heat it worked fine. SIMPLE! Your heating element is made up of five coils. For low heat your dryer uses two heating elements and for high all five. So if one or two of the heating elements are open and they happen to be the low temp dry setting ones, that would explain it. That model doesn't have the dryness sensor on it (according to my documentation) so the heating element is the most likely cause.
Hope this helps!

Oven won't heat, all burners work


I suggest that you remove the upper and lower heating elements to the oven, turn the oven switch to on, then use a good digital voltmeter, and check the plug that the lower heating element was in. If you have good (200 volts or more) then purchase and install new heating elements. Turn the oven switch to Broil setting and check the same way for the top heating element.

Dryer runs hot on low heat setting


What kind of dryer do you have? Some dryers use a bimetal or snap-disc thermostat with a heating element under it to control temperature. the heating element is used for the low heat setting to make it turn off early since it will sense a temperature higher that what is actually there. If the heating element is bad then the thermosat will only operate at the high temperature. You should look at replacing that element.

Stove top burners and lower baking element not heating up


If all the elements are dead, check for blown fuses/tripped circuit breakers. There may be some in the range unit itself in addition to your electrical service panel. If one element is completely dead on all heat settings, the control is probably bad or there is a broken wire. If it is stuck on high for all control settings or is erratic, the control is bad - replacements are readily available and easily installed.
On ranges with push button heat selection, a pair of heating elements are switched in various combinations across 120 and/or 240. If some heat settings do not work, the most likely cause is that one of the heatings elements is burnt out although a bad switch is also possible. Kill power to the range and test the heating elements for continuity with resistance meter or multimeter.

For the lower baking element:
Again, check for blown fuses in the oven or tripped circuit breakers. The remove any wiring to the bottom element and test for resistance. If you get no reading (or a very high resistance) then your element is dead.
