SOURCE: Whirlpool Dryer. Heating core has 220v feed, but will not heat,

Check to see if your vent is being blocked by lint.

Whirlpool electric dryer 220V bought in USA and brought it to Europe Serbia. I was told that USA 220V and Europe 220V is not same. I did not plug it in yet can someone tell me what to do. Thanks


the voltage is approximately the same,the difference is the frequency of incoming power as power delivered in the USA is at 60 Hz. and power in Europe is at 50Hz. so some electronic parts will not operate on this frequency,you might be able to purchase a power/frequency inverter unit but not sure on this,talk to your power provider as they may have the answer to this

Heating element in dryer inop. has 220V at element


Disconnect the element, test the resistance of the element. If its infinite (OL, or omega) its shot. Test it to ground while you are at it (usually done with an immersion element, but what the heck). If you read resistance from end to end, you really do need to look and see if there is actually voltage being sent to the element when there is a call for heat.

LER4634EQ2 whirlpool electric dryer. heating element,thermal cut-off, and high limit are all getting continuity, but heating element still will not heat up.


I know this might sound stupid but try this. Find your fuse box, locate the breaker that runs your dryer. Flip it off and then back on. If i'm correct, it will work. Everything on your dryer works off of one leg of the 220v. The other leg goes to the other side of the element. If you have a meter. check for 220v at the plug. Everything you listed is what makes the dryer heat other than the thermostats. Check the cycling thermostats like you did the other pieces. They look like the thermal cut off. They have two wires and they are round.
