Question about Dryers

I have a Whirlpool Dyer, model #LHE5800WD

A Few months ago, the dryer would no longer turn off automatically, but it would still heat. So I have just tolerated the problem.
Now the dryer will no longer heat. How do I repair this problem?

Heating problem


There is a thermal cutoff built into the dryer to protect from fires due to overheating. This could be activating after the dryer starts running for a while. Is it possible that the exhaust duct is clogged up with lint? Check the airflow at the dryer vent.

I have a whirlpool lgr5634a gas dryer, it heats up but does not seem to heat as high as it should.


possible of lint build up in the discharge vent vaccum/clean out first. next ensure the filter trap is clean and the below area is in the discharge area is cleaned out. also the sensor on the inside of the drum could be coated with sooftner causing the sensor that automaticly tells the dryer when top stop/ amount of heat to produce could be coated use isopropel alchol to clean and check after 10 minutes if the dyer is functioning properly at this time.

Whirlpool dyer is running however no longer heating


The first thing i would cheak is to see if you have 110volts on each side and 220 acrosson plug recepticle if you do not have a voltage meter try the breaker.It will be a double 30 try and snap it on and off 2 times and see if the heat comes on.If not you may want to cheak the safty thermostat located under the back panel.It will be the top thermostat on the heater housing.Bypass by joining the wires together and tape so no short happens.Turn on dryer still no heat i would say you need new element.Would say timer but very very rare timer is problem.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Whirlpool model number LGV7646ANO gas dyer will not heat up


Can you hear a click like always? If not then it has to be either the fuse, ignitor,or sensor. If you hear it clicking then the operator coils are dead. HERE is a link that shows pictures of these parts and locations.
