Hello there:
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

I have a whirpool dryer that is not heating model number wed5550sq0 Imperial series. I took the heater coil off. is that the only thing it could be?


On the heater element housing is 2 limits.
If either of these are open the dryer will not heat but it will run.

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

No heat


If this is a Whirpool model dryer (this includes Kenmore, Estate and Roper), the heating element will be located on the lower right hand side with the back panel removed. If the dryer does not have removable back panel, the heating element will be located inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side.

Since you posted no brand name or model number, I'm going by the heading you posted this under. If your dryer model is different, please post back with your correct information so that I may assist you better.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this answers your question.

Whirpool twin thin no heat


Make sure you have 220 volts first at dryer. Heating element is on back of dryer. You'll need a test meter to see what's wrong unless you can see broken wire in element itself. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
