Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I ordered new heating element, thermistor, and thermst-fix.
Dryer still will not get hot. What else do I need to purchase to fix this problem.
Does the drum turn? I know you have checked the breaker which can trip sometimes. There may be a small disc about the size of 7-8 stacked nickels that is actually a reset that is planted along in one of the lines. You can bypass it to see if it is the problem. If it is, then you can get a replacement at an appliance store. Make sure all your wiring is correct because you could be spending a lot of money for nothing. Was your old element actually bad(burned in 2)? This main thing I would want to know is if the drum turns or not. The other, probably not, problem could be in the control panel. If you are handy with an ohm meter, you can see if those parts are indeed O.K. You can call em at 803 463 5567 for clarification.
