you can remove the back panel everything is acessed from ther, with a meter you can check for continuity of all the thermoats and heater assy, first one to check is the thermal overload fuse locate d in the middle of unit "white " usually blows when excessive temp is detected( blocked vent)

Before starting troubleshooting-Unplug the dryer, because you will be removing front panel for this check.
There are several things that can cause your problem:
#1 of which is a clogged up lint trap and/or vent duct raising the heat that could cause your thermal fuse to open (blow). What to do: Make sure that duct and vent outside of wall are clear, if they were obstructed, then the thermal fuse can be checked for continuity with an ohm meter, it is located in the fan housing with 2 terminals coming off of it, if it does not have continuity (connection) between terminals, you will need to replace it, simple and less than $15 bucks.
NOTE: this problem can also be caused by a bad thermostat letting dryer get to hot which in turn blows the thermal fuse., sooo after changing thermal fuse you need to check that the temperature of air leaving dryer duct does not exceed 150 degrees, if it does replace the thermostat for less than $25 bucks, this maybe be what caused your problem in the first place. Good Luck!

It might be the fuse. Be sure you do a bit of cleaning before you replace the fuse or it might just blow again. Look for lint. I looked up your model. I once did a write up about what goes wrong, how to get into the machine, a training manual and videos. HERE
Helpful? Rate please.

No heat in your whirlpool is caused when the thermal fuse goes bad and needs replacement. As everything else is working so the problem is with the fuse which is located on the blower wheel housing inside the back panel and to replace you'll have to open it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
