ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

Whirpool dryer 10 years old is still heating but taking very long to dry clothes. Checked dryer vent and it is clear. Will heating element help?


If your heating element is still heating up the cause lies elsewhere. Filter for dryer both at the base of dryer and filter location . If you are getting heat then airflow is the problem. how is the fan motor in front of heating element

My Whirpool dryer model LXE 7400 WO doesn't


Unplug the dryer.
Remove the back panel.
Inspect the wires at the terminal block where the cord connects.
With a volt meter set for continuity check the thermal fuse on the heater canister(up high). No continuity , replace it.
Check the hi limit thermostat at the heater terminals, no continuity , replace it.
Check the heater terminals for continuity. If none replace the heater.
Remember to remove at least one wire from each part before testing.
