    Default Not enough heat?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I have always been under the impression that a dryer heating element either worked or it

    did not. Meaning it would not be the cause of not enough heat. I can see if the connections are loose maybe and doing a little arcing, but generally speaking, I would not expect the element to cause a situation where the clothes have to be dried twice because of not enough heat. It is heat or no heat. Am I wrong?

    In situations like this, I normally think, venting, blockage maybe timer or even belt.

    The reason I bring this up is I have seen on one site the element being listed as a possible cause of not enough heat. The element and thermal fuse. Thermal fuse? Not "enough" heat?? My experience tells me thermal fuse blown on Whlpl dryer means no running at all.

    For the most part correct.

    A grounded or shorted to ground element can cause low heat or too hot issues.

    I don't know where most thermal fuse would cause low heat, most either stop the heat or motor from working.
