Question about Whirlpool LEQ8000JQ Electric Dryer
Hi My roomates and i just got a new dryer and got it hooked up by a friend in our new apt.! It's an old dryer. Not sure how old but it's a whirlpool ultimate care heavy duty super capacity plus and it won't dry clothes. It's taking 4 to 5 times to dry a load if that. The metal vent in the back is hot, but there isn't really any hot air in the dryer when i open it. Can anyone please help. I'm not sure if it is the connections here at the apt. or if I need a new part to fix it. Thanks!
Examine all the ducts in the dryer, and the fan and fan housing for lint. Lint buildup stops the air exiting the dryer
cant get out
cant get in
surprising how much lint you can get out of a dryer
after clearing all the lint,
thermal fuses, thermostats and the heater element for conductivity.
remove 1 wire from each to isolate from the circuit, test with ohmmeter or battery and bulb, replace wire
when cold all devices in the heater circuit should conduct
when cold a small device in the motor circuit that looks the same as all the other devices, a cool down thermostat does NOT conduct
devices: may all look alike,
to open dryer case read any of the 'changing dryer belt' questions or the good instruction manual posted by Joks
