WHIRLPOOL ELECTRIC DRYER - 9 YEARS OLD. The dryer will run, but no heat is present. I was replacing the thermal fuse AP3133489, but after reading your column, not sure if this is correct diagnosis. Will you please advise your troubleshooting direction?
ANSWER Hello Will. No, if the unit runs, it is not the thermal fuse 3390719. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
