Question about Whirlpool LEQ8000JQ Electric Dryer
I assume by what you said that you have accessed the heating element itself and checked it with a meter.
Make sure you have 220 volts to the dryer. The motor will run, even if one side is out since it runs on 120 volts.
There are many items that can cause your problem, but the common ones are in the area of the heating element. They are all either limit safeties or limit thermostats. They should all check out at zero ohms resistance. The most common to fail is a skinny white device located near the center bottom. It looks like this.
It causes 90% of the problems, so check it first. There are others on the back panel, so if that's not it check those as well. They are either round or squarish in shape, including one that many models have attached to one of the terminals of the heating element.
There are other possibilities, such as the heat selector switch, timer ect. but this usually covers 99% of the no heat problems on this machine.
