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.

No heat from dryer.

1.Removed lower dryer cover - two screws. 2.Tested heating element circuit including high temp cutoff, - Heating element circuit was "open" so I first tested the heating element - "open" so I removed one screw on the side and removed the element - element broken. 3.Ordered the part - good price and the deliver was great, three days. 4. Cleaned any lint up and Installed the new heating element and front panel 5. Heated right up - probably saved myself a good $100 for less than thirty minutes of work!!!!

Dryer didn't have heat.

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.

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.

No heat from dryer

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.

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 runs but produces no hot air.

I moved the dryer away from the wall, unpluged the power cord and removed the lower front cover. The cover is held in place by two screws in the lower corners. The thermal fuse and heater elements are immediately visible. One screw and two wires hold the fuse. Removed the wires and the screw and removed and replace the thermal fuse. I then removed the wires from the heater element noting the colors. That probably was not necessary as the connectors are of different size. A single screw holds the element housing and a slightly upward twisting motion freed the housing from the air tubing. The element could then be pushed out of the housing and the new element installed. Reinstall the housing, wires and front panel and the job is completed.
