Whirlpool GEQ9800P Electric No heat

Wow, the manufacturer really doesn't want anyone to get inside this machine. The back is riveted as well as screwed on. How can I access the heating element to remove and test? Or to find any fuses that might have gone bad in the machine?

    My dryer will run, but will not heat. I have 10.1 Ohm through the heater element, continuity through the hi thermal switch, and no continuity through the thermal cut off switch. A local appliance store has a combo pack of thermal cut off switch and hi thermal cut off switch for $29. Will try that tonight and see if it works to switch them out.

My whirlpool GEQ9800P dryer won't start. The light is on inside, and there is no lint trapped in the exhaust in the rear. The lint trap looks OK too. How can I remove the front panel? Will that give me...

It is probably the thermal fuse which you can get access to from the front bottom cover. It is about $15 and most parts stores have it in stock. Need 1/4" wrench to remove. Clogged vent tube is most common reason for this going out so pull out and vacuum out well too. Make sure you unplug the dryer first.

Your house vent is restricted causing the long time to dry complaint.
Please clean the entire vent to the outside.
Also make sure the vent behind the dryer does not get smashed when the dryer is pushed back to the wall.

No Power

look for an "open" thermostat either on the heater can, or a thermal fuse has gone bad, probably shorted out when the element broke.

Whirlpool electric dryer will not heat

check the thermal limit on the side of the heater housing and the blower thermal on the blower housing
the emement limit is at the top of the blower housing and will have 2 red wires going to it
the blower limit will have blue wires going to it
withe the power cord unpluged, remove the wires to these two limits and with a meter on rx 1 ect. read across each of these if you do not get a meter fluctuation , all the way to the right as you check the part os bad
