Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
Whirlpool Duet Dryer, runs but no heat. I have check the vents and washed the filter. Still no heat! This dryer was purchased in 2004.
The following link will provide with the necessary information on how to diagnose a dryer no heat problem:
Read the note at the bottom of the link provided, first, to determine if you have the proper voltage at the wall receptacle.
Now...if you the receptacle checks good, make sure you check the dryer vents from where it exits the back of the dryer to where it exits your home (the entire run). Additionally, make sure it is not kinked behind the dryer. A dryer needs unobstructed air flow in order to work properly and dry efficiently. NOTE: Make sure you are using semi-rigid metal type ducting. It is more resistant to heat, kinking, crushing and rodents chewing through it.
The most common failed part for a no heat problem is the thermal cut-out (TCO). If the TCO is bad, it is recommended you replace the TCO and Hi-Limit thermostat at the same time. They are often sold as a set.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
