Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool ACCUDRY Sensor fell off.

My sensor inside the dryer came off. the dryer still worked for about a week or more. I think that it caused the thermal fuse to blow. I tested it and got no reading. I put the sensor back on, but noticed that there is only 1 free wire and the sensor has 2 connectors. Is 1 not used? If so, which 1?

The dryer is a Whirlpool Ultimate care 2 LEQ8000L2Q

Electric dryer getting way too hot

3-5 ACCESS TO THE BLOWER WHEEL OR THERMOSTATS

To get to the blower wheel, remove the back of the dryer.

The blower wheel is under the bottom of the lint screen duct to your left, as you look at the back of the dryer.

The operating thermostats are at the blower wheel outlet.

In electric models, the hi-temperature cutout thermostat is mounted to the heat riser.

3-6 TEMPERATURE CONTROLS AND HI-TEMP SAFETIES

These clothes dryer machines use operating thermostats to control the temperature inside the drum, and hi-limit thermostats to prevent overheating of the dryer drum.. Many machines also have extra temperature controls, such as bias thermostats and heaters, hi-temperature cutoffs, and thermal fuses.

Bias thermostats are just like regular operating thermostats, except that they are mounted inside a bias heater. When the bias heater is energized, it generates a small amount of heat, which causes the operating thermostat to open sooner, keeping the dryer drum cooler inside. Thus a bias heater allows a single operating thermostat to act like both a hi-temp and a lo-temp operating thermostat.

A thermal fuse is found on the blower outlet, right next to the operating thermostat(s.) This fuse will blow when too high a temperature is sensed at the outlet; usually when one of the operating thermostats has failed. If it blows, the motor may not start, or you may get no heat (no voltage to the burner.)

A thermal cut-off is mounted on the clothes dryer heater box. It is a back-up for the hi-limit thermostat. Whenever you replace it, you should replace the hi-limit thermostat, too. A high-temperature condition causes it to open, an overheated grounded heat element may also cause it to open.

Thermal fuse failure


If the relay sticks, that will cause overheating and the thermal fuse to blow.

Maytag dryer is less than 3 years old. Blew thermal fuse. Cleaned all of the venting inside and out. dryer still overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. Replaced the thermal fuse and the high temp sensor...


Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

My dryer turns on but throughs out cold air


In most cases, a failure to heat is caused by a blown thermal fuse or high limit thermostat. Usually it is the fuse, but the fuse may be blown due to a defective thermostat. To find the location on yourspecific machine (and purchase the parts) try www.appliancepartspros.com To test the fuse, WITH THE MACHINEUNPLUGGED, put an ohmmeter or continuity tester across the fuse with it's wires unhooked. It should have continuity. If it is open, replace it. If the thermal fuse blows, it is fairly common to find the dryer vent partially blocked as well. Make sure it is clear. Thermal fuses are fairly cheap, but you don't want to have to replace it every other week.

Kenmore Elite Sensor Smart Gas Dryer - no hot air


unplug the dryer,if you haven't cleaned out the dryer check the thermal fuse located on top of the blower wheel housing,remove bottom panel,then remove lint filter,now remove the duct that the lint filter slides down into,now you'll be able to check the thermal fuse located on the top right side of the blower wheel housing,there's also a thermister there too,the fuse is the one on the left,part number 3392519 or 3390719,remove one of the wires and read it out with your meter.also while your in there vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off all the lint that's built up on the motor and you can also blow the lint that's in the back of dryer forwards so you won't have to pull the drum,if you have a long run on the vent line from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower,if there is any blocks in the vent line,the duct or lint inside the dryer you could have a fire so this should be done every year,now if the fuse is good you gonna have to read out the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils,if you have parcial heat it's definetly the gas coils,when they heat up they stop working when they're bad,if you need anything else let me know,so check the thermal fuse first,then the ignitor,sensor and coils,if they are good check to see if power is coming down to fuse and ignitor,you have a computer board on this dryer but most of the time it's the fuse and a dryer clean out

Dryer turns on but will not heat up.It has not been used for two weeks. It worked perfectly then. Is there a fuse or a reset button? Electricity was off periodically,


Check for a blown thermal fuse. It is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse. Another cause of not heating would be a faulty heating element, but with the electricity issues you mentioned, it is most likely the thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Blowing high limit fuses


Check the blower wheel attached to your motor.
It may be free-wheeling causing too high a temp thet is blowing the fuses.

Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric dryer blows thermal fuse


I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.
