My daughter called and said her Whirlpool electric dryer LEQ8621PW0 would spin but was not drying. I pulled the unit from the wall and laid it on its back. Removed the front cover. I did a continuity check on the heater element and it showed open. I unplugged the hi limit thermostat and thermal cut off and removed the heater box with the element. I removed the element from the heater box and verified the coil was defective.
I replaced the element. Reassembled the dryer and when I plugged it in, nothing! No spin or heat. I have 240 VAC at the receptacle. I can hear the timer running when I attempt to run the dryer. I can hear the timer stop when I open the door and restart when the door closes. I have continuity across the thermal fuse contacts. Where do I go from here?
