Re: dryer will not dry

The half load button must be selected before the drier will half load and then turn the knob to the asterix type symbol.turn on and that will hopefully do it.

Re: dryer will not dry

If the dryer tumbles but does not warm up, you either have one or two blown thermal fuses, a burned out element if it’s electric, or a burned out igniter if it’s gas.


If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat.  Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot.  Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine.  Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged.  Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out.  Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on.  If not you have a blower problem.


The thermal fuses are located on the element casing.  They each have two wires coming out of them.  They are about 3/4 inch round with screw ears on the sides so they are about 1 1/2 inch long and about an inch across.  With a multimeter, check the continuity across the terminals.  If there is no continuity the fuse needs to be replaced.


To check the element(s), you can either visually look and see if it is broken or check the continuity with a multimeter.  No continuity means the element is broken.  Replace if necessary.


To check for a broken igniter, take out the old one and look at it.  If it looks broken or very burned, replace it.

How do you dry clothes in this machine please

A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

Sometimes, a Whirlpool dryer may not function as you'd like.Although specific details vary by model, the company offers several generalguidelines to troubleshooting your Whirlpool dryer and getting it back intoworking order.

Verify that thedryer is connected to its power source if it won't turn on. Whirlpool alsosuggests checking your home's circuit breaker, as the high power needs of thedryer may have tripped the circuit. If the circuit has been tripped, reset itby flipping it back into the "On" position. Push the door of the dryer. Whirlpool designed its appliances to not turn onif the dryer isn't secured and notes that the dryer door may not be fullyclosed even if it appears shut. Push firmly at the top and bottom of the door,as some Whirlpool models have two latches. Press the "Start" button again. Whirlpool reports that some modelsrequire you to press and hold the button for five seconds to fully start themachine. Depending on the model, the button may be labeled "Hold toStart," "Start" or "Push to Start." Check that the dryer's settings knob is set to an actual drying mode and notsimply "Air" or "Tumble." On most Whirlpool models, themanufacturer states that the settings knob should be set to"Accudry," "Timed Dry" or "Automatic Dry." Clean the lint trap, typically located at the top of the dryer and removedby pulling its plastic handle. Over time, lint and dust builds up here. Thethicker the trapped layer of lint, the slower your dryer performance. Whirlpoolrecommends removing built up lint after every dryer load. Remove some of the wet clothes inside the dryer if it's taking an unusuallylong time to dry your clothes. Whirlpool warns that placing too much clothinginside the dryer reduces hot air circulation, which also reduces dryingcapabilities. Recommended dryer load s vary, with compact Whirlpool modelsholding approximately 3.4 cubic feet while extra large Whirlpool dryers holdingmore than 7 cubic feet.

Whirl pool dryer LEC9000PW0 will not turn on

Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that both circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuse(s) or reset the circuit breaker(s). If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Is the correct power supply available? (Electric dryers only)
Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with a qualified electrician.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Your dryer door may not be fully closed. It may look shut, but may not be latched. Push on the door to engage the latch or latches. Some models have an upper and lower latch. Both latches must be secure for the dryer to run.
Was the Start, Push to Start or Hold to Start button firmly pressed?
Large loads may require the Start, Push to Start, or Hold to Start button to be pressed and held for two to five seconds.
Is the Cycle Control knob set on a Sensor Dry or Timed Dry cycle? (on some models)
The Cycle Control knob must be set in a Automatic Dry or AccudryTM or Timed Dry cycle. The dryer will not start if set on the Wrinkle ShieldTM option.
Is Controls Locked status light on? (on some models)
Press and hold the Cycle Signal button for three seconds. This will turn off the Controls Locked feature.
Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer? (Electric dryers only)
The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. If the power cord is incorrectly installed, the dryer may not start or heat. Review the Installation Instructions to check that the power supply cord is properly installed.

Whirlpool awg 338 washer

initially check the element for continuity then check that any part of the wiring has not come off. if the water does not heat up it may not be advancing the timer to continue with the later stages of the wash, ie waiting for the stats to say the water is warm enough. tone.
