WHIRLPOOL DRYER WONT HEAT


1st thing is to reset the house breaker for the dryer, it is a 220 volt breaker, the dryer only needs 110 volts to run but needs 220 to heat, so the breaker can be partially tripped which will only allow for it to run but not heat. If that is good make sure where the cord attaches to dryer terminal block isn't burnt up, you can lose 220 there as well. If you have 220 to the dryer then you either have a bad element or thermal cutout located on the element with the hi limit thermostat, those parts can be tested for continuity out of operating condition

Control Panel in my whirlpool duet dryer model #GEW9250PWO will come on & the dryer will not work at all. Unplugged dryer and plugged back up still doesn't come on. The light within the drum is on when...


First check for 220 volts incoming power to the dryer at the terminal block on the rear of the dryer.
If you have 220 volts,check continuity on part number 59(thermal fuse) in the attached diagram. No continuity is a bad part.

cut and paste this link to your dryer diagram.

My drier 110 volts was accidentally plugged to 220


The least of your problems would be a burnt out relay or internal switch which can be replaced at reasonable expense. In a worst case the motor or heating element "fried" and it'll be cheaper to buy a new dryer.
BTW 110 and 220 plugs are entirely different and a 110 plug cannot be plugged into a 220 outlet.

LER4634E WHIRLPOOL FRONTLOAD ELECTRIC DRYER WORKED GREAT


If you have a access to an AC voltmeter, measure the two slanted connections in the wall socket for ~220 volts. If near zero, measure at the load side of the dual breakers for the same voltage. If still at or near zero, one of the breakers has gone south. Replace the pair of breakers.
If you measured 220 volts as above, then the problem is within the dryer--probably a burned out heating element or open thermal fuse. Major tear-down to find and fix as the heating element is behind the drum.

I have a whirlpool dryer, model number GEC9858EQ0, that did not restart after opening door to check the laundry. I have ohms checked the start switch and door switch. where do I go next?


It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:

  • If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

    Good luck

Whirlpool stacker washing machine works dryer doesn't


The problem is probably with the outlet. The washing machine motor is 120 v and the dryer is 220 v. If one pole of the two pole breaker is bad you could end up with the symptoms you have. I have seen this happen before. go to the circuit breaker and push it all the way to off (it may feel like you are crunching something inside...don't worry) then turn it back on and try the dryer. If this doesn't work, unplug the unit and test the outlet with a voltage tester. you should read 220-240 volts across the two slots and 120 volts from each slot to ground. If not, it is time to call an electrician.

    You need to check for 220 volts at outlet.  It's possible to have only 1 110 volt circuit.  May be a bad breaker. or outlet.  If you have 220 volts at outlet,  you need to have an ohm meter to check continuity of the thermal fuses and the heater.   Access by removing rear panel.  UNPLUG FIRST!!!!!
