I am having trouble installing part # AP3131941 can you help?
Answer Hello Joe. One side of this goes onto the heater terminal and the other connects to the wire. You will pull the old one off the heater leg to remove and then put the new one in it's place. Hope this helps.

My whirlpool dry does not dry and the heating element does not heat up.
Answer Hello Jeff. 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
Dryer is set on low heat and the dryer still get real hot.
Answer Hello Kuch,
You should first check for a shorted heating element 279838. This occurs when the element droops enough to contact the heating element housing or the element has burned in to and has fell to contact the heater housing.
My Dryer does not dry but before I replace something I wanted to ensure I have the right part(s). Dryer will start and the element heats up but after 30ish seconds the element cools off and does not come back on. What do I need to replace?
Answer Hello Michael. With an issue like this, you must test to find the part failing. Unplug both wires to the element. Then test and see which wire is dying and not coming back. Then trace it and see where your losing power and replace the bad part. Be careful, you are testing live power here. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

I have an Admiral clothes dryer, model# AED4475TQ1. Lately when using Auto Sense Dry, clothes are still damp when dryer stops. What could be the cause? There is heat because when I use Timed Dry there is good heat. Thank you.
Answer Hello Bill. 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.
My dryer won't heat, I replaced the fuse,the hi thermostat and the cycling thermostat,still no heat.
Answer Hello Pat. Make sure there is 240 volts and the heater is good on the unit. If so, then either the timer or the motor may be bad on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
