Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Dryer has no heat
Okay...the following link will give you the steps necessary to diagnose and/or repair an electric dryer with a no heat problem:
Read the bottom of the link first. Verify your receptacle voltage is reading 220-240VAC. If you're only reading 1/2 the voltage you could be missing one leg of the 220 service. This will still enable the dryer to run, but the heating circuits will not operate. The reason is the drive motor only uses 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require the full 220. If this is the case, a receptacle repair is required. Unless you are savvy with electricity, I would only recommend this repair be done by a certified electrician. If you're source voltage at the receptacle is good, then I would assume you have an internal component problem.
Read the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. If the dryer vent ducting is clogged anywhere, and left in that condition, to dryer heating circuits will actually overheat and result in premature failure.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require further assistance.
