After finding the PartSelect website I entered the model number of the dryer and clicked on the link that was part of the trouble shooting feature that took me to a list of possible failed parts showing the percentile figures for how often each part was the culprit. The highest percentage replacement part was the heating element. I watched the video, removed the heating element and confirmed it was at fault. Broken coil wire. Ordered and replaced part. Was a little confused by reconnecting thermostat but watched video on that specific part replacement and successfully repaired dryer.

Disconnect power! Remove vent hose. Removed back panel. Disconnect plugs from high temp sensor (2nd hardest part) - remember which one goes where. Remove old heating unit held in with hex-head screws. Remove high temp sensor from heating unit (hardest part). Reinstall High-temp sensor into NEW heating element. Install new heating element assembly into dryer (snug fit). Reconnect electrical connections. Reconnect exhaust. Test to ensure functions properly - success! Uninstall exhaust & install back panel. Install exhaust vent. While it was open, I vacuumed it out, as well as the exhaust vent.

My husband took the back off the dryer as instructed in the video and replace the heating element. To our dismay something else is wrong with the dryer. The start button still doesn't work. I know the heating element was needed because it stop drying at the normal temperature.

I removed the dryer to the outside to have more room to work. The dryer is easy to move about. I first watched the video and then I removed the part, recorded the serial number and ordered the part online. I received the part within two days. The work to replace the part, replace the back panel and place the dryer back inside and plug it in took about twenty minute.

Auto Dry not advance and 60 minTimed dry advance to end next timed dry cycle

  • Customer: Lance from West Salem WI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

PROBLEM: Intermittently, the dryer would not advance on the Auto Dry setting and would stay at max heat continuously, even after 2.5 hours with the clothes dry and very warm. At first, I replaced the CYCLING THERMOSTAT, which DID NOT correct this issue. Then I also found the 60 Minute Timed dry setting would work fine until the end of the cycle and the dryer would stop like it should. Then, I checked back 10-15 minutes later and found the timer had advanced into Fluff Dry Timed cycle with heater on full, but the dryer not moving air. This caused the Thermo-Cut switch (fuse) off to open and the Heater Element would not put out enough heat to dry the clothes. TROUBLESHOOTING: 1- UNPLUG the dryer for all troubleshooting and set the DVM for OHMS ( or use ohm-meter). 2- Both the Cycling Thermostat and High Limit Thermostat checked good at 0 ohms (dryer unplugged). The entire Thermo Cut-off/Thermostat circuit can be checked at the Timer (VERIFY proper wire color with dryer schematic in top console), which also verifies the wires are good and should be 0 ohms without the Heater Element in the circuit. For the Whirlpool WED5300SQ0 dryer, it's the Red and Orange wires at the Timer. 3- If the Heater Element is in the circuit (see schematic for test points), look for between 8-12 ohms for a good Heater Element. For the Whirlpool WED5300SQ0 dryer, it's the Red and White/Black wires at the Timer or across the Heater Element connection. SOLUTION: The Heater Element checked out good at 10 ohms. When the Heater Element was physically removed from the dryer one of the PORCELAIN MOUNTS was BUSTED, which caused the heater element coil to intermittently come in contact with the dryer housing while running/drying clothes, which caused the Timer to not advance on Auto Dry when the Cycling Thermostat Opened and malfunction for the Timed Dry settings. To physically check the Heater Element, just remove the 2 screws and the wires to the High Limit Thermostat can stay hooked up. The Thermo-Cut off kit is easy to install and there is a installation video if there are questions. Just be careful to NOT cut the Heater Element connector on the Jumper wire kit. The spade connector for the heater element is wider than the other side that is cut off for the dual spade connector. The Heater Element is easy to replace as well. If the Thermo-Cutoff Kit is being installed, the new High Limit Thermostat can be mounted to the new Heater Element before it is mounted to the dryer housing, which makes it easier to screw in the self-tapping screws. After this repair was completed, dryer has functioned perfectly after many loads of clothes using all dryer settings.

Heating Element burned out

I was pretty sure it was the heating element. I watched two different Youtube videos. Once I cleaned up all of the trash and coins behind the dryer, it was just a matter of removing the screws from the back. I disconnected the wires, replaced the element, and reconnected everything and replaced all of the screws. It works perfectly again!

Just as your helpfull diagram of the dryer said, removed the rear panel,there it was, i recongnised it by the part you sent, pull it out of it's position, had a little truble figuring out the piece that fits on where the electric prongs are, after looking found out the piece was held on with a clip that goes inside the housing, Haaa. the rest was easy. Thanks,It works great. Dick

Drye quit heating

Removed the back panel with a 1/4" nut driver on a Ryobi impact driver. Used multimeter to check the thermal switches and the heating element. The element was broken. Went to the PartSelect web site and quickly found the part by using the model number and verified the right part by comparing the photos to the actual part. Placed an on-line order at approximately 1:00 pm and the part arrived at 2:00 pm the next day. Cleaned out the dryer vent and it works better than it has in a long time. Great web site and delivery from PartSelect and didn't have to run around town looking for the part.
