Take off the back of the machine. If you have an ohm meter, check for continuity across the element. The Thermostat above the element leads on the side of the element canister then the thermal fuse at the top side of heater box all for continuity. Then check the long white skinny on vent housing for continuity. If any of these has no continuity, then replace the bad part. If thermal fuse on heater housing is blown, it comes with a new thermostat replace both.

TEDS840JQ no heat

It probably has a bad timer. To check the timer set your meter for ohms or tone if you have tone. Connect a test lead to the terminal that connects to the large red wire from the heater. Now check for continuity between that point and all other terminals on the timer. if ya cannot get a reading the timer is bad. Here is my video:

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....

No heat to dry clothes. Dryer is 4.5 years old. The dryer is made by Estate (by Whirlpool). Model # TEDS740PQ0

By far, on that machine the "thermal fuse" accounts for more than 50% of all heating problems.

Unplug machine and remove back cover. On the air chute in the middle back of the dryer you will see a small narrow bakelite device with 2 wires connected to it. It is held in with 1 screw.
You will need an ohm meter to test it, or remove it and have an
appliance parts house test it for you. If bad replace.
Whirlpool part #3392519.
The second common problem on that dryer is the heating element and can be checked with an ohm meter as well.

On rare occasions one side of the 230 volt supply is out.
The side running the motor is o.k. but the heater side has lost power.

Caution: your dealing with 230 volts here. remove plug receptacle cover and check with a volt meter for power.

Replaced the coil and still not heating up on my estate dryer

The thermal fuse (aka thermal limit switch) is probably blown. It is not a good idea to bypass this fuse -- if the dryer overheats, it will not cut off the heating element -- fire is likely in that scenario. If you want to troubleshoot the problem, let me know,

Dial does not advance. dryer does not stop.

Sounds like a timer has went bad. Especially if it wont move in any cycle. The timers are pretty easy to replace, and on this model, not that expensive. The timer number is : 8299778 and runs around $60.00. To remove the timer, just take the back panel (of the console) off, then slip the knob off by pulling gently, then remove the hold down screws and pull off. I believe this particuliar timer has one wire bundle, but if not, be sure to make your wires to know where they go back. Good luck, and let me know if you need any further information.
