Where is the fuses located when you open the top up to check and see if the heating element is out?
Answer Hi Veronica. The thermostat is on top of the round heating element housing to the top left of center. This part # is 3204267. The thermal fuse is mounted to the inside of the back of the cabinet @ upper left area also.It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. Hope this helps.
The part # is 134120900. Thank you.
How do you know when the heating element is out? The reason I ask is that my dryer spins but is not heating.
Answer Hello Jess. There are a few ways of checking the element. First is a physical inspection. Remove the part from your unit and look for burnt or broken parts. You can alternatively use a multi meter to test the part to see if it makes a complete circuit. If your element is working but clothes are not drying, you may want to also test your thermostats and the thermal fuse as well as check your unit's ventwork to ensure that it is not clogged or causing low air flow. I hope this info helps!

Answer Test and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Also test the heater and thermal fuses for continuity, they should read closed or 0.
