Q: How do I tell if my heating element is bad? A: If your dryer is heating at all, then the element is NOT the problem. When the element is bad, then there is no heat at all. Usually there will be a break somewhere in the heating element coils and will be visible. If the heating element is bad, then it is usually a dryer fuse or thermostat issue.
