Should be a reset switch on the back of the machine usually just a red button or small hole if not there is over heating protection on the heating element or elements if it has 2 heat settings ,but these cannot be reset have to be renewed

Why my Whrilpool Drier AWZ 555 is not drying the clothes and power light is blinking?


Check to make sure it's getting full 240vac power. Some or most driers are fed from two breakers in the box. If one is tripped you aren't getting enough power. That could be causing the blinking light. Also check for enough exhaust flow to prevent overheating.

I have a Whirlpool LER4634PQ1 it was working just fine then all of a sudden the dryer just keeps running the knob on the dryer doesn't move and the air isn't warm. Any suggestions on what to s


there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

Does Not Shut Off


1st go the the house breaker (dbl breaker) for the dryer and shut it off and turn it back on, your dryer runs on 220 volts of power but if the breaker is partially tripped it may be only running on 110 volts which is only enough power to turn the lights on and to turn the drum the element needs 220 volts to turn on. If it still doesn't heat after resetting the breaker then you may need a heating element or thermostat. The dryer isn't shutting off because it isn't detecting the clothes are getting dry so once you fix your heating problem the dryer should start shutting off on its own again.

Dryer runs but does not dry clothes


Dryers run on two circuits. One runs the motor and the other runs the heat. Check to make sure the fuse isn't blown or the breaker isn't tripped. Usually there is a fuse box behind the dryer with two fuses. One is for motor, one is for heater.

My dryer runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. What could be the problem?


I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.

Maybe the heating element overheated and tripped the auto shut-off button? Try this:

Drier shuts off


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement. The elecment has a contact in

the 'timer'circuit too.

It is possible that your element has

failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint

filter and the exhaust vent tube and all

the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

restricted.

Whirlpool drier has no heat and won't shut off . . .


it was most likely caused by the timer not turning off and burning out the heating element or a temperature switch or tripping one side of the circuit breaker in the house. it really needs to be checked out by a professional. unless it is old then you might want to replace it.
  • best case scenario:
  • the breaker has tripped (turn it off then back on to find out)
  • the TIMER MOTOR is the only problem <$30
If the timer itself is bad then it will cost a lot more.

Clothes Dryer not working


if it is tripping the breaker right away there is an issue with the drier shorting to ground. unplug and look for a broken wire in the drier. if the drier runs for 10-15 min maybe 30 before it trips the breaker. there is a loose connection in the wiring. either at the junction box in the wall behind the dryer or at the breaker panel. If it is in the electrical I would call an electritian. Good Luck!

Maytag Neptune W/D (Stacked) Drying Irregularly


Mj, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by a pinched or clogged vent. Other things that could be causing this are: cycling thermostat trips too soon, if your dryer is a gas model, weak gas valve coils, drive motor centrifugal switch not allowing voltage to the gas valve or heating element. Check the harness to the motor to make sure it is on tight. Catriver...post back.
