Remove the 9 screws on the rear cover then one by one remove wires to the high limit thermostat on the lower right side next to the heating element,then up above that theres a thermal cutoff thermostat,then on the left side on the blower housing theres a thermal fuse white in color about an inch long by 1/4" wide,and a cycling thermostat,check all of these for continuity with an ohmmeter they should all show near 0 ohms resistance or like a fuse its either good or bad,then if all checks out ok,then it could be the heating element on the right lower side....good luck.make sure to unplug the unit before doing any testing and for your safety.....thank you.daniel

I have a whirlpool dry mod#5636 in my home I have 110 the cord on the dryer is for 220 can I change it to 110 and will it work right..


No it will not,dryers with 110 volt plugs heat on gas,220 dryers heat with electric,putting a 110 vac plug on dryer for 220vac,the motor will run but it will not heat
your 2 options are

1) have a electrician come and run 220 vac circuit

2) purchase a gas dryer

My dryer is not heating. Seeems to be running fine except every few minutes makes a churning type noise and there is no heat. We cleaned the lint trap and the exhaust hose. Is this an expensive repair?...

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...
