7 year old whirlpool duet works but no heat

First I unpluged the dryer from the electical power. I removed the 2 screws holding the bottom front panel. Then I saved a bit of time and effort. Instead of removing the bracket and pulling the whole unit out, I bent the metal plate in front of the heating element toward me. I unpluged the 2 wires from the plastic casing and removed the screw holding the heating element in place. Next I pulled out the old part and pluged in the new one then connected it in reverse order and bent the plate back up to protect the element. This was a very easy and inexpensive way to fix the dryer like new again. The hardest part was vacuuming and cleaning the bottom of the dryer. There was seven years of lint build up under there.

Just before leaving for vacation, we discovered that the dryer was not heating the air at all. Its an electric dryer, so did the basic troubleshooting, put ohm meter on the dryer element and found it was open circuit. Ordered the replacement element and it arrived while were were gone on vacation. My wife and daughter came home early from the beach to get kid ready to go to college. They needed the dryer, so I was able to walk them through replacing the element over the phone.

Amazing that they were able to get this done, but really just says how easy it was.

I actually had a friend's husband do the repair, who is an electrician by trade. He removed the front of the dryer, removed the box that held the element, removed the element, marked the wiring, and then when the part came, he put it back in, and reassembled the dryer.

Suggest you test all suggested parts first with ohm meter to determine cause of failure. Heater element was functioning properly, other parts were required to fix problem.

Piece of cake! After reviewing the other comments, simply removed the small philips screws, popped off the outer ring, changed the handle and re-assembled. Took less than 10 minutes and my dryer is like new! Don't need a man for this easy job.

Dryer running cold

As per directions (videos) I found on PartSelect; 1st removed the bottom panel, then removed the housing (2 screws) covering the fan/lint trap area. Pulled the wires (2) from the heating element and removed three screws, 1 on the side of the housing immediately behind the heating element terminals, and 2 screws holding the stamped steel riser in place. I didn't have to remove the entire heater housing, but rather wiggled the heating element out slowly. For that I used a pair of pliers to grip the element and a gloved hand to hold the housing steady while I pulled one side then the other. I spent some time vacuuming out all the dust while I was in there. Replacing the element was a little easier, it slid in with firm hand pressure. Then just a matter of reversing the steps above. Wife was happy and once again, I am a hero.

Fantastic site and service !!! Using your site, I i'd my needed part in about 10 minutes. I received my Whirlpool dryer door latch part from you in less than 12 hours. Per your internet site instructions, I replaced the part in a few seconds (just popped it into the slot) and my wife had a working dryer for her Sunday wash. I would have been out $55 and 4 to 7 days waiting for a service call if I had used my home warranty service contractor. Using your service, the part(s) and shipping were just over $12.

I watched your online repair video, which was excellent. As I started the repair, it was exactly as described in the video....very easy. The only thing I did differently was clean out the mechanical compartment of the dryer with a shop vac.....simply because it was full of lint. There is nothing I won't try to fix; but this job can be done by anyone. Do it yourself; don't spend the money to have someone else do it.

When I ordered the part, I viewed the installation video. That was a key step for me. It told me how to identify the correct part (there are multiple latch pieces in the repair kit, and one of them matches the type of door for the dryer), and how to disassemble the door to get the part installed. When the part came and I installed it, it turned out that I could snap the part in by hand, with no tools. It took about 5 seconds to try it, and it worked.

The dryer door kept popping open while in use.

I googled the problem, then came across a site where somebody had experienced the same problem, and they changed the door catches to resolve it. I did a search for Whirlpool parts and found "partselect.com". I followed the instructions on the website and located the parts very easily and also discovered that there was a video on how to make this repair. We were tolerating this problem for quite some time and now the problem is resolved, thank you...
