Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Try to put the dryer on a timed cycle and see if the timer will advance. If you have the dryer on an automatic cycle and it is not heating it can run for a long long time. If the timer will advance in a time cycle you may just need to check your thermostats and the heater on your dryer. To do this pull the dryer out and unplug it, then take the back off. You will need a voltage meter to continue. Check the voltage at the plug and make sure you have two seperate 110 volt legs and 220 volts across. If the voltage is correct check the heater for continuity and make sure it is not grounded. Then check the thermostat on the top of the heater housing. If all of these parts are good and you have the proper voltage you will need a new timer
