The following link will provide with the necessary information on how to diagnose a dryer no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

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.

Whirlpool duet electric dryer leaking water


Check and clean your venting from the dryer to the outside. If it is plugged it will trap the moisture in the machine. Remember heat doesn't dry the clothes without air flow to push the moisture out.

I have a Whirlpool duet washer and dryer. The dryer is not working well. the ligts come on and it spins but it doesn't dry the clothes, what can the problem be?


Is it heating or not? Is this gas or electric? The first thing to check is your vent and clean the lint filter. Then you should check the heating element and the thermal fuses if it is not heating (assuming electric). If it is heating and you're not getting dry clothes then your venting must have issues. Good luck.

My whirlpool duet is not drying....it is not getting hot. It appears to be drying but it is not getting hot. I have to run the dryer multiple cycles.


Check for crimp in your vent line, Check your breaker. It is a dual breaker if one side pops it will run with no heat. Check those first.

Whirlpool Imperial Electric Dryer wont heat up


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Whirlpool duet electric dryer taking too long to dry


A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent  doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket  thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle between 120 degrees and 170 degrees. Check that the drum seals to make sure the are not worn out.

Check your exit vent outside of your house... what you can do is remove vent hose on back of your dryer... run dryer and feel the air coming out of the vent right behind your dryer.. now reinstall your vent line and check outside,,, see if you feel the same or about the same air flow... if your air flow is block, then your heat will not come on regularly to dry clothes... good luck
