Are you using the Pro dry option?

And have you tested the heating element for voltage during a dry cycle?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
How much for the answer?
no pro dry option just a heat dry which was selected
didn't check voltage while running
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 9 months ago.

ok the use and care booklet shows it as Pro Dry ( but it does also say options vary by model)

so then you will need to set heated dry and during a dry cycle (end of the full cycle) test the two blue /white wires for 120 volts A/C

Which means your best bet is to have the unit out from under the cabinet/ countertop to be able to test the voltage to the heating element.
