Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

when this does heat (a little) is it in automatic or timed cycle ? how did you test the element ? with a volt meter or visually ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Ohmed with a meter,


 


the low heat was when the timer switch was on low heat cycle

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
okay, there are a few things that can cause that in this dryer, good to know you have a volt meter though.have you tested any of the thermostats ? this is a pretty basic dryer , not much to it. can you test voltages ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Yes I can

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
okay , first you should test the thermostats, this is the automatic cycling thermostat. heres a link to show you how to test that. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Cycling-Thermostat/3387134/2893?modelNumber=EED4400WQ0

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
How do you mean a gas dryer diagram ? I didn't send a diagram. is this not electric ? the model number comes up electric dryer not gas , is this gas ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

whem I clicked the link you sent it took me to a repair clinic site, and in that site if you click on the parts replacement tab it shows a whirlpool gas dryer cycling thermostat youtube video which does not work.

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
okay well they use that in both electric and gas, anyway its part # XXXXX on this diagram .take one wire off and test the larger 1/4" connectors for continuity. if it has continuity its good. if its good then you timer is bad and has a bad contact in it on the nigh heat side.
