The heating element comes on even if the dryer has not started. As soon as I turn the dial to a stating, the heating element is on before I press the start button. The dryer does not start, it just ticks the timer away and kicks in the heater. No spinning or blower. What do I need to check.

Steve for Model Number WED5840SW0

ANSWER Hello Steve. You need to check and see if the element is grounded and touching the frame of the unit. If so, it will cause the issue you are having.
