Thin Twin stacked washer & dryer

Dryer has no heat-it tumbles with air. Checked the heating element (replaced it) and the thermostat and they are both good. Any other suggestions?

The lint obstruction possibly caused the high limit thermo to fail. It is designed to prevent the machine from running if it gets too hot. It should be the one at the top of the drier stack. the one on the element needs to be checked for proper operation as well. this can be done with a multimeter. Be sure to unplug your machine before checking as there will be power at the connection points.

SOURCE: whirlpool thin twin dryer starts and stops after 5 seconds

In the back of your thin twin dryer is a small white flat fuse attached with a screw, a clip, and two spade clips and wires. This is a thermal fuse and if tripped will cause your dryer to do nothing. Check with multimeter for continuity and replace if necessary. Also inside machine is a black tubular capacitor that will cause dryer to not run. Again, remove after properly discharging capacitor. Using multimeter check capacitor for continuity and potential. Obviously disconnect all power to machine before even thinking about repair. 240 volts will kill you dead.

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Check the lid switch, the machine will not spin or drain without the lid switch being activated. You should be able to see if the switch actuator is broken or missing, look in the slot where the lid's plunger drops into, if you can see the gray plastic actuator, set the machine in the spin cycle and try to depress the switch with a flat screwdriver, if it runs, the switch is cracked and needs replaced, if the actuator looks fine, and you can hear a distinct "click" when you press down on it, it may be a problem in the timer, but check the lid switch first, that's most likely the problem.

Dryer has no heat


I have one of those Kenmore "Laundry Center" stacked washer/dryer units. It comes built that way - it is not two units stacked on top of one another (if there is such a thing).

My guess is that it is at least 13-14 years old now (it came with the house I bought) and about 3-4 years ago, it also stopped heating. The dryer would run for a couple of hours and all of the clothes would still be damp and the air in the dryer was not warm or hot.

I searched online and found that the usual cause is the heating element wire was probably burned out if the dryer was otherwise running all right. I found some repair instructions online and the procedures to take the dryer apart (can't recall where - just Google it).

The heating element is like a long coiled resistance wire, similar to what you would see in a toaster but heavier duty. It is strung in a circle behind the dryer drum tub to heat the air that enters the dryer.

If you've ever looked into a toaster when toasting, you'll notice that that thin resistance wire glows red hot which generates the heat. Now imagine that thin wire being red hot and the dryer tumbling, causing constant vibration. It's amazing that the heater resistance wire doesn't break more often!

A pretty handy DIY-er can take the dryer apart and replace the heater wire, but the challenge is getting the stacked unit out in the open somewhere where you can work on it. You need a fair bit of room.

My advice would be to also buy the drum belt replacement kit to also replace that at the same time. If you're going to go to the trouble of taking the dryer apart to replace the heater wire, you might as well replace the drive belt and associated felt pad, etc. at the same time. You DON'T want to have to take the dryer apart again a little later to change that part when it breaks. (It's like a timing belt on your car - if you're doing major work on your car and have the engine apart and it's "about time" to replace the timing belt per the manufacturer's maintenance schedule, might as well do it a the same time to save on repeating the labor again.)

Did you check the thermostat and the high limit thermostat. If not check them for continuity with a volt meter to confirm if they are good or not. Continuity good, no continuity bad. I posted the diagram above so you can locate the pieces in the machine.

I have a thin twin stacking whirlpool washer/dryer. The high limit switch is kicking off the element within 2 mins of running. So heating element heats up red hot, then clicks off after 2 mins. I have...


I think you are on the right track with a faulty high limit switch. When i serviced these units we always replaced the operating thermostat and the high limit switch together they came in a kit. The operating thermostat in theory should never let it get hot enough to trip the high limit switch, which is really just a safety backup for the operating thermostat. Get the kit and replace both, and also make sure your exhaust vent going outside has good flow at the outside vent,a restricted vent system will cause similar issues.. Good Luck

Dryer is taking too long to dry, can the element be worn out? whirlpool, thin twin heavy duty, large capacity


If it heats the element is good. Most likely cause is bad ventilation. check the vent on the outside of the house while dryer is running to make sure you are getting plenty of air flow. If you want to check to make sure its working properly general rule is 6 towels should dry in 60 minutes.

Make sure you have 220 volts first at dryer. Heating element is on back of dryer. You'll need a test meter to see what's wrong unless you can see broken wire in element itself. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
