The element is controlled by thermostats mounted inside the back of the dryer on the air exit box. There is also a contact on the motor that makes when the motor is running. Any of these could cause the problem. Try a different heat cycle, this may help narrow it down.

SOURCE: my dryer flame lights then goes out after a little

if the dryer runs fine for the first 15 to 30 minutes then no flame you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve.when the coils heat up they fail when they're on there way out.just remove the two phillips screws,take off the cover and you'll see the coils,change them out watch out on the larger coil there's a metal sleeve that needs to stay on the post,if you don't see it look inside the old coil,if it's in it push it out and slide it back on the post and then slide the coil on,plug the harness back on put the cover back and reinstall the two screws,let me know how you make out,also while your in ther vac out the dryer,you should clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean out the vent line,i use a leaf blower to blow out the line if it's a long run,do this once a year so you don't have a fire and the dryer will last longer,just like an oil change on your car.good luck

I had the same problem. I replaced the thermistor,heating element and another part and still didn't correct problem. i finally had a friend come check it and believe it or not it was the 30 amp fuse in my fuse panel of the house.Come to find out the dryer will run and everything works like it should on 1/2 of the 220 plug but the other half runs the heating element.Both fuses must be good. I replaced the 30 amp round fuse and it works and heats perfect. I hope this helps you and saves you some time and money.

Why does my whirlpool senseon dryer start when i disconnect the thermistor wire but then shuts off after a minute?


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Whirlpool Senseon dryer control panel won't work


Could you please explain the problem in depth for me? Not sure what you mean by the control panel not working. Is it getting power? Do you have lights on inside the dryer (if it is equipped with it)?

Clothes not getting dried


Are you sure that the duct is clean and free flowing? If the duct is partially blocked the dryer's efficiency drops dramatically. I would double check the duct at both ends and clean out as required - air flow is very important - with the dryer on - go check the air coming out of he duct outside - if it is very forceful - then the problem is elsewhere - however if only a little bit of sir is coming out - your all plugged up!.
