Question about Whirlpool Dryers
When was this dryer in production and what did it sell for?
Try to put the dryer on a timed cycle and see if the timer will advance. If you have the dryer on an automatic cycle and it is not heating it can run for a long long time. If the timer will advance in a time cycle you may just need to check your thermostats and the heater on your dryer. To do this pull the dryer out and unplug it, then take the back off. You will need a voltage meter to continue. Check the voltage at the plug and make sure you have two seperate 110 volt legs and 220 volts across. If the voltage is correct check the heater for continuity and make sure it is not grounded. Then check the thermostat on the top of the heater housing. If all of these parts are good and you have the proper voltage you will need a new timer
timer # 8299778 $74.00 shipped to you.
heater # 279838 $63.00 shipped to you.
thermostat kit # 279816 $40 shipped to you.
Gool luck to you and let me know if you need a part.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Dryer not heating
There is many different things it could be! most of the time it is not the heating element. You have thermal fuses and safety switches. I bet you 10 to 1 if you locate the thermal fuse on the element cannon say 1 foot up from the incoming voltage from the wires to the heating element.
1. either disconnect power to the unit, take continuity on every fuse try the one i suggested first.
2. the same exact fuse im talking about disconnect power and connect both wires together, dont ground it out, plug power back in and then try it.
Note this is only advice and Whirlpool Parts Surplus is not responsible. Try that give us a call or hit that link and find your thermal fuse part number.
