    Ok excellent, What you need to do is take the back off to expose the heater, Then you will see 2 T.O.C.'s located on top of the heater sheald whick need to be convex in shape! ( do not touch them tho as your finger prints will break them) If you see on that is concaved then you need to replace both as they come as a pair! Let me know how you get on!

Whirlpool AWZ 7686 Tumble Dryer heater works for only 10seconds


Might want to check for an obstruction in the outlet of the exhaust

Well if you had mention that in the first place I wouldn't be asking you. No wonder your trying to fix the problem by yourself because with that attitude you can't get a technician to come out for service.

TUMBLE DRIER STOPPED HEATING


Gas dryer?

If so, probably bad gas solenoid valves. They can safely be replaced without fear of releasing gas. Two phillips screws, two pull off wire plugs. That's it. Cost about $30 bucks depending on where you buy them. They are a universal part and will fit 99.9% of machines.

Zanussi tumble drier is not heating up to dry clothes , but is working OK otherwise


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Drier does not tumble but it still heats.


Hi,

Sound like the belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.
  • Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it.
  • You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it.
  • Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

The tumble dryer tumbles but I have no heat and the filter light


Since the heating element is not heating up when powered up you must have a bad heating element.
