I have a whirlpool duet sport electric dryer purchased

Customer Question

I have a whirlpool duet sport electric dryer purchased 3/22/2008. The heat comes on but the barrel holding the clothes does not turn. The dryer makes no noise at all. Have checked circuit breaker; it is on. It may have overheated. Is there a reset button?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It was purchased 3/22/2008; Model # WED8500SRG.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If we can.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: What needs to be done to make it work?

The heating element has shorted to ground and opened the thermal fuse. Both the element and the fuse will need to be replaced. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
