Dryer not drying


another user's Q&A for the same issue try that or call may tag, they are supper helpful

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

8574d88.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

    2005 Whirlpool Gas Dryer. It won't heat. The coils won't glow. Had the fuses, ignitor, and coils checked and are ok. Could it be the timer? How do I check it?o

    MY DRYER WON'T HEAT.


    This is usually caused by a blown thermal cut-off which blows and cuts power to the heating element due to the failure of the high limit-thermostat to cycle off and regulate the heating element temperature. Check the dryer for clogged lint screen and/or restricted vent system then replace both thermostats when either of them has failed. Both are located on the blower housing.

    If your Whirlpool dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers, thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F. Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer is easier than it sounds. Instructions:

  • Clean out the lint screen in your Whirlpool clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryer to overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer's heating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and wash it in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.
  • Look behind the dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions. Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lint that has built up.
  • Go outside and check your Whirlpool dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, bird nests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger your dryer's thermal fuse.
  • Disconnect your dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.
  • Access the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer by removing the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in place and it should easily come free.
  • Look between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wires connected to it.
  • Bypass the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer while you perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together the two wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it back in. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start." If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermal fuse needs to be replaced.
  • Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer. Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape that you used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from the thermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer and discard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing and tightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

    Not heating


    The Most common problem is a bad thermal fuse.

    1 the thermal fuses are located in the cabinet of the dryer under the drum
    they can also be located on the front of the blower wheel housing. on the back wall of the dryer or along the heating element can.
    2. some kenmore, whirlpool machines have these fuses located in the rear of the machine.especially when the lint filter is located in the top of the dryer.
    3. the heating element can also be bad.
    4. if you have an ohm meter you can check the continuity of the thermal fuses,as well as the heating element.if there is no continuity on any of the above mentioned parts. Replace the faulty parts.
