I have 120 going to each leg and 240 together but no heat.
If you have 240 vac at the heater but no heat then the heater would be the issue and need to be replaced.
I have a whirlpool front loader dryer and the heating element is bad I have the front open. What is the best way to remove the old part?
Answer Hello Ken,
There would be screws holding the heating element in place. Simply remove the screws and pull element out. Make sure unit is unplugged before working on unit. The screws are on the front bracket holding heater in place.
When replacing heating element, does anything need replacing in conjunction with this?
Answer Hello Dodger. If the element 8544771 is all that is testing bad, it is all that you will need to replace.
I am unsure whether it's the element or the thermal fuse kit. Is there a way to check with an ohm meter?
Answer Hello James. Yes, you will test the parts for continuity. If they read closed then the parts are good. If open, you will need to replace the parts.
