SOURCE: whirlpool thin twin dryer starts and stops after 5 seconds

In the back of your thin twin dryer is a small white flat fuse attached with a screw, a clip, and two spade clips and wires. This is a thermal fuse and if tripped will cause your dryer to do nothing. Check with multimeter for continuity and replace if necessary. Also inside machine is a black tubular capacitor that will cause dryer to not run. Again, remove after properly discharging capacitor. Using multimeter check capacitor for continuity and potential. Obviously disconnect all power to machine before even thinking about repair. 240 volts will kill you dead.

SOURCE: Lint Filter in Whirlpool Agitator washing Machine

I have a regular top loader and the lint filter is on the underside of the inner tub. You have to remove the inner tub to get to it. You might be able to find a service manual explaining this at appliancejunk.com.

Thin Twin has a slow water drip when not running


If it drips while the washer is off then you will need to replace the "water inlet valve". Here is the part you need. Here is the service manual to show you how to access the valve and replace it.

Clothes have lint on them when the washing cycle is finished is there a lint area i need to clean


The newer Whirlpool top-loaders have lint screens on the inner tub and not accessible. These are supposed to self-clean during the drain cycle. I've heard that liquid fabric softener and detergent build-up may clog the screens when lint sticks to the gooey screens. Try something that will cut the goo like vinegar or ammonia in a small load level without clothes. Without clothes in the washer, that is.

Older Whirlpool washers have lint filters located above the tub, on the lid opening.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Thin twin washer dryer that smells like burning electrical. The dryer was very hot after the cycle. What could be causing this?


That sounds like the exhaust air is restricted somewhere. Take the lint filter out and wash it in hot water and detergent to remove the fabric softener deposits. Remove the external vent hose and clean the lint from it and the outside shutter assembly. Vacuum below the lint filter and from the exhaust tube that the hose attaches to. Try to get inside the door cavity with the vacuum (watch out for sharp metal edges). Run the machine for a short time with no clothes in it, without the lint filter, and with the hose disconnected to blow out any lint previously missed. Make sure that there is a good volume of air moving. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool dryer


First make sure you have power to the unit through the plug. If power is present, then you most likely have an open Thermal Safety Fuse. The Thermal is a Safety feature that shuts off the power to the Heat Element in the event the Blower is not blowing or the Lint Vent becomes clogged not allowing air to flow over the Heat Element. NO air flow, Heat Element over heats, Thermal Safety Fuse opens, power shuts off. If the Thermal Safety Fuse is open find out why. Was the blower not working? Was the Lint Filter clogged? ( Lint Filter should be cleaned after each use to assure continued air flow.) Was Lint Vent Clogged? This is the Vent Hose that goes from the Dryer to the outside of your house. It should be checked for free air movement. The next thing-- Could be a defective Timer or Control Module.
Find where you lost power and WHY!!
