Why is my dryer not heating?

We have a whirlpool dryer older model. My husband has tested EVERYTHING for continuity, everything seems to check out fine and getting electricity. We just 2 weeks ago cleaned the venting system out because the dryer stopped working all together, we replaced the thermal fuse and it started working again. But Now it runs but doesn’t heat? We have pulled the motor out as well and that’s getting continuity as well. Is there anything we are missing here? Please help!

HI @grayashlyn38,

What is the model number of the dryer?

@grayashlyn38 we would need to know exactly what was tested. What concerns me is that the thermal fuse needed to be replaced. Have you checked the heating element (this is an electric dryer, correct?). Like @jayeff mentioned already, we will need to know the exact model number for your dryer.

I had a similar problem with my dryer. If yours is gas, one of the most difficult to troubleshoot issues is the gas solenoids. When cool (no heat from burning gas or heat from being powered on) they test out normally. Perfect conductivity and ohm readings. But as soon as they get hot enough, the connection breaks from the wires shifting around inside them from heat and gas stops flowing. It took me so long to finally figure that problem out on my dryer. If you haven’t replaced them yet, I’d highly recommend doing so. They’re quite inexpensive too. Make sure you get both of them though! (there’s two, I don’t remember why).

There is also a flame sensor and an ignitor on most gas dryers. Again, if you have gas, make sure to check those too.

Thank you!^ unfortunately ours is electric, we’re gonna try a few more things out tomorrow and if not I’m about to throw the whole dang thing away lol!

@grayashlyn38 Unfortunately in your case, it might be something similar to the solenoids, but instead with the heating coils. Otherwise it could be the heat controller too.

Make sure to recycle it properly if you do end up getting rid of it :)

Make sure you have 240v AC coming to the dryer before you throw it out. Could very well be an issue in the outlet or the breaker box. The dryer will run like normal - but no heat at all. Very common that I diagnose brand new dryers not heating and find that to be the case:)
