Hello,

Check the thermal fuse (#9 at the diagram) for continuity. Replace it if there is no continuity.

Remove the wires from the heating element and check for continuity between each of the terminals and the ground. Replace the heating element if there is continuity.

Check for continuity between the terminals 1M & 2M at the motor while it's off. Replace the motor if there is continuity.

- The thermal fuse kit Part number: 279816

Part number: 279816



- The heating element Part number: 279838

Part number: 279838



- The motor Part number: 279827

Part number: 279827



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for Whirlpool WED5100VQ1 Dryer - AppliancePartsPros.com
