Answer Hello Ed. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff and that you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. 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
Dryer starts and runs for a short time than the dryer shuts down no blockage in the venting where do i start.
With the unit running for a short time then shutting of it is very possible that the issue could be a motor winding that is going bad. When the motor winding heats up it will cause it open up and has to cool back down in order to restart.
The dryer heats but takes a real long time to dry several cycle for a single load.
Answer Hello Tom. 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.
Dryer operates normal and blows air but no heat. Replaced heat element, but it still does not heat....just blows air. What would next thing to look at be?
You will want to check the thermal fuse, the hi limit thermostat and cycling thermostat for continuity. If any of them do not have continuity then you will want to replace the part without continuity.
My Whirlpool dryer is not blowing any heat. What can I do to fix it?
Answer Hello Diego. 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. Test for power coming from the relay board to the heater. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity.

Dryer will not start. Push initial button and it lights up. After seeing, push start button and does not start. Timers runs, but nothing else.
Answer Hello Gary,
If the displayed number flashes, make sure the door is completely closed. Press and hold the Start pushbutton down for 3 seconds. If this does not work, check the thermal fuse and the voltage out for the motor terminal P1-4 blue for 120Vac. If no voltage, replace the board. You should also be sure to check the belt is on and the belt switch has not tripped off.
