My dryer was not heating up.

I asked for advise, looked around and priced heating elements and thermostats. This was the best combo offered for the price given. It was shipped and received it very quick. Installed it and 5 minutes later, she was running like a champ!

Dryer working fine but no heat

Found this website and reviewed videos and comments prior to purchasing the heater element and high limit thermostat and thermal fuse kit. We had recently put our Whirlpool duet washer and dryer on pedestals and after that, the dryer would come on and run, but would not heat up. Installation of the parts we ordered was simple...and we would be considered novice installers....really great website and easy to understand. Customer service was excellent as well. After installation of the parts, still no heat and heating element was registering only 120v. We checked everything again and found that the dryer plug was not all the way in the socket. Probably came loose with the move to the petestal.....plugged it in securely and it works great now. Should have checked that first, but because it was running we just didn't think of checking it. Good lesson learned and so glad we found this website. We will definately be using this site again and telling everyone we know about how great you guys are! And at least we won't have to worry about the dryer for a while and we now know we can fix a dryer that won't heat up!
