10 year old Whirlpool Estate dryer              Model  TEDL640DQ1

The dryer has power to it but it will not heat. I've cleaned lint from inside the vent housing and the air vent is positioned correctly so there is not an air flow problem. It made a squealing noise 2 days before it stopped drying but the noise soon went away so I don't know if that has anything to do with the heating problem. Any suggestions on where I should begin to diagnose the problem?

I would start by testing the element # 17 and the thermofuse # 6 with my ohm meter to see if one of these are defective...with the dryer un-plugged..click on the blue word  "testing."

It was the thermofuse. Thanks a million, Pegi. You're the best! :D
