SOURCE: Need year of Manufacture and User Guide

The manufacturing date is in the serial #. The first character will be a letter. The second character is the year code. It will either be a number or letter. If it is a number then it is pre 1990. 0=1980, 1=1981, etc, until 1989. If it is a letter, X=1990, A=1991 B=92 C=93 D=94 E=95 F=96 G=97 H=98. J=99 K=2000 L=01 M=02 P=03 R=04 S=05 T=06 U=07 If the first 3 characters are letters then the 3rd letter is the year code. The first two digits after the year code are always the week of the year of manufacture. Example CD12345 D = 1994 12= 12th week of year Hope this helps. I have no info on any codes prior to 1980. I am not sure about the manual, but if it is still available you can probably get it through Whirlpool or Sears but you may have to call their #800's to order it. They don't list everything on the websites.

SOURCE: wiring diagrame for hotpoint gas dryer

E-Mail me and I will send you a copy of my Schematic. It's 2 pics, but they are pretty clear and should help you. I came to the site wher I saw your post looking for a pic of an exploded view of our dryer. Trying to open it to fix the glide bushing. Started makin metal to metal noises lately, so I am assuming it's like a nylon glider for the drum?

SOURCE: No heat on Whirlpool leq8000jq1. Is it just the heating element?

There are several things that could cause this problem, here are a few common things it could be, before doing any checks you should always make sure you disconnect your appliance from it's power source.

  1. bad heating element, you can check the heating element for continuity with an ohm meter.
  2. bad thermal fuse
  3. faulty power cord
  4. bad thermostat
  5. tripped breaker or blown fuse from house power supply, check to see if you have 240 volt supply to your appliance.

Control locked is on

First try to unplug the dryer for 30 seconds, I then plug back in and see if it resets itself. Next, you will need to locate the wires that lead to the licking device and disconnect them and wrap electrical tape around the will have to disassemble the control panel to access it. It would help if you have the wiring diagram handy to make it quicker. It should be located on the back panel of the dryer which gives you access to the motor, wiring, etc.

Whirlpool Dryer is not heating

suspect element. refer to wiring diagram. unplug dryer. unscrew or unplug wires from element. use multimeter set to "continuity," and touch leads to ends of element where you removed wires. If no meter reading or "beep," element is probably bad. If you have continuity, suspect loose wires or switches. That's all I know!

It's completely dead. won't turn on when push button. dial works fine. is it a blown fuse?

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, there is a Thermal Fuse in the back of the dryer that, if blown, will prevent the dryer from running. To access, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG dryer and SHUT OFF gas supply.

2. Locate and remove the rear panel screws on the back of the dryer.

3. With the rear panel removed, the Thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing on the left-hand side of the dryer (as viewed from the rear). It is a small plastic looking component with two wires attached.

4. Disconnect the wires to iosolate the fuse and measure across the leads with a multi-meter. The fuse should read a short (0 ohms) if good. If it reads an open (infinite), the fuse is bad.

NOTE: If you do not have a multi-meter another simple way to prove the fuse bad is to make sure the dryer is UNPLUGGED and disconnect the two wires from the fuse and jumper them together. Plug the dryer back in and, if it runs normally with the fuse by-passed, the fuse is bad. CAUTION: DO NOT leave the dryer by-passed in this manner, Use only as a TEMPORARY means to troubleshoot your problem.

If the thermal fuse is blown, it generally blows for a reason. Most commonly, this is caused by a dryer that is overheating. I would recommend that you fully inspect your dryer ventilation ducting inside the cabinet and from the point where it leaves your dryer to where it exits you home. Make sure there are no kinks, clogs or choke points that will keep the dryer from ventilating correctly. A dryer in a clogged state will not heat efficiently and will eventually overheat to the point of failure. This will result in repeated failures of any components you may replace.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifing any parts you may need. The Thermal Fuse part number is 3392519 and is listed as item 7 under the "Bulkhead" parts listing.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Looking for dryer diagram

There should be a schematic on the inside of the back cover, sometimes it is located in the top control panel somewhere(timer panel)

Whirpool WED5820SWO after two or three loads of running fine, the dryer will not start when the button is pushed until you jiggle the timer knob and sometimes the dryer will start in Timed dry and then...

If you're going to purchase parts for your appliance you are going to need to know the correct part number to ensure you get the right part. The part number for a new timer for the model number you provided is 8566184. It can be found on line at for about $55. You can also try the following appliance parts websites:

Some of these sites also have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you in locating the parts you need. Your timer is listed under the "Top and Console Parts" heading as item 21.

To replace, make sure your dryer is unplugged. Remove the back panel of the operator console and the timer knob. Either use a digital camera or write down the correct location of all the wires. They are are color-coded and marked on the timer, but some replacement parts can differ slightly in design. HINT: An easy method is to remove the screw(s) that hold the old timer in place and allow it to hang. Then, swap wires one at a time from the old timer to the new one.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS Your model number is actually "WED5820SW0". The last digit is a "zero" vice the letter "O".

I need wiring diagram for whrilpool ler5636kq1. timer

Good luck finding one. I look at the wires. They are marked with the same letters as that of each dryer terminal. I have a plain jane dryer manual from whirlpool but I doubt it will help much.

The manufacturer normally places a wiring diagram inside the operator console. Remove the back panel and there should be a diagram taped inside. Some of these diagrams will show two circuits. One is for a gas dryer, and one is for an electric dryer. Make sure you reference the correct one. I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance please let me know.
