Most common cause is burn out of the thermal cut-out. These are a small screw on device on the exhaust duct, when exhaust air reaches too high a temperature, like a blockage, they fail before a fire.
Clean the exhaust ducts all the way to the outside wall, lots of vent hoods block over time. then examin the exhaust duct for devices that look like this CDE6500W Not Heating - ce71633.jpg or like this b8e6372.jpg with wires connected to the terminals. there may be 2(hi lo), test with a flashlilight bulb or ohmmeter conductivity good, no conductivity replace.
there are only a few different kinds the local parts guy will have them all. take the dud one for him to match.

My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le

Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element. The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.

first, make sure dryer is unplugged before removing cover. locate you heating element and with a multi meter or volt meter put dial on ohms setting or the setting that beeps when leads are touching together. your heating element looks like a coil of wire. remove the wires connected to each end of heating element. take the leads from volt meter and place the lead on one end of the coil and the other end on the opposite. if you do not hear a continuous beeping sound or no reading on your meter it is bad. if you do it's not. check internal clogg or the thermal fuse located near exhaust duct. the heating element has to be replaced.

Whirlpool Duet dryer not drying like it used to

If your duet isn't heating properly and you have taken care of the lint problem then you could have one of two problems. Either you have a bad heating element or you have a bad fuse or temperature sensor.
If your dryer is not heating at all then it is most likely the fuse or temp sensor. If it is heating and just not enough it is probably a bad heating element.
Both problems would require a repairman to come and fix normally, however if you believe it is the heating element that can usually be replaced by the homeowner without too much trouble. Just make sure to ask where it is located from whatever place you but the new element from.

The dryer works but does not heat

Before you buy an expensive heating element change out the thermal fuse. It's only about 15 dollars for a fuse as opposed to around 100 dollars for a heating element. Both can be purchased at a appliance repair shop. The thermal fuse is usually located near the heating element housing and has two wires coming off of it. Make sure you unplug the dryer first though. If the thermal fuse if dead then your heating element will only heat for about a second or two at a time. The way to check this is to open up the dryer so you can see the heating element. While it's running watch it and it the heating element comes on and then turns off then the thermal fuse is bad. If it doesn't come on at all then the heating element is bad. Wait a good 5 minutes though before determining if the heating element isn't coming on. Sometimes it takes a bit before it engages. I hope this helps you and if you have any more questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.
