Question:

I keep having to replace my heating element … this is the third time. This time it melted the wires that are attached by the insulator. Wth am I doing wrong that it keeps going, plz help!

Joy
Answer:

Hi Joy, sorry to hear that. The most common reason for elements failing is due to the dryer having poor ventilation. Your first step should be to check the vent of the dryer for clogging and make sure there is good airflow. I hope this helps!

Question:

My dryer is not heating up, I checked the heater element and it is getting 240V. I checked the high limit thermos, the thermal cut off, and the heater element for continuity and there is between all three. So is it definitive that I need a new heating element?

Mitchel
Answer:

Hi Mitchel, if you tested your heater element and there is 240 V and it still does not heat you can be confident that it does need replacing. Please let us know if you have any further questions!

Dryer would not heat

The dryer stopped heating. Took the front lower panel off of the dryer and obtained the troubleshooting instructions stored there. Used an ohmmeter (most volt meters also have an ohmmeter) and tested all the electrical components one by one (thermostat, thermal fuse, heater coil - following the troubleshooting instructions provided with the dryer) and found that I didn't have any resistance across my heater element. Removed it and sure enough there was a break in the heater coil. Ordered a new heater element from PartSelect for less than $50 and replaced it myself. Saved myself a good bit of money repairing my dryer myself. It was very straight forward and easy. If you can follow easy to read instructions you can do it.

Heating element went out

A) Watched video of repair on site.B) Looked around for competitive prices and decided on PartSelect because of original parts, price, and 1 year guarantee.C) Proceeded to take dryer apart like video showed. Error was my dryer front panel has two screws covering the heater box and that was all I needed to remove and replace heater instead of dismantling the back. Good news though was, I removed all the lint build up in the machine so not a waste of time. Be sure not to touch the new heater wire coils as oil from your hands will destroy the heater prematurely. Heater was original Whirlpool ! I'm a happy camper.

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.

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.

No heat when dryer spins on all cycles

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.
