Question about Dryers

Open Question

WHY DOES MY WHIRLPOOL LEQ9508PW1 CONTINUE TO BLOW THE SAME FUSE OVER AND OVER? I HAVE TESTED ALL OTHER FUSES AND THE THERMAL CUTOFF SWITCH AND THERE IS CONTINUITY. THE HEATING ELEMENT IS NEW, I REPLACED IT MYSELF AND I TESTED THE CONTINUITY ON IT AS WELL AND IT IS FINE. i CANT FIGURE OUT WHAT KEEPS BLOWING THE FUSE LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE HEATING TUBE ABOVE THE HEATING ELEMENT.

SOURCE: whirlpool leb6000pq1 not heating

Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement. The elecment has a contact in

the 'timer' circuit too.

It is possible that your element has

failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint

filter and the exhaust vent tube and all

the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

restricted.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet electric wil not heat

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

SOURCE: Should you have continuity on the cut off switch?

Yes, it should have continuity. You need to replace both thermal cutoff thermostats, the one on the top and on the bottom of the element. Part number 27981.

SOURCE: Kemore dryer model110.67522600,

Both the high limit thermostat #3977767 and the operating thermostat #3387134 are normally closed switches and should have continuity. These thermostats are usually replaced as a set because when one fails its often caused damage to the other. The part # for the kit is 279816 and comes with both and is cheaper than if bought separate

Why won't my whirlpool electric dryter #ler4634dqo generate heat?


if you have a old house that has fuses sometimes only half of the fuse will blow making it look like the dryer is working but it wont turn on the heat element take the shielding off the heating element and start the dryer and see if they wires glow red hot when running and also after running the machine does the inside feel warm or cold if it is warm check the duct work on the dryer all the way out to the exit and see if lint is clogging it up

DRYER seems to blow a lot of fuses does one fuse run dryer and the other for heating element? dryer will run BUT not heat up


The typical reason several Thermal fuses(motor circuit) or Thermal cutoff (heat circuit) will go out is because or poor air flow so what needs to be checked it for lint build up in the filter housing below the lint filter and/or a chrushed or blocked venting from the back of dryer all the way to where it goes outside

Everything has gone of on my tumble dryer is there a reset button whirlpool 6th sense awz7814al


Try the thermal cutoff fuse... first check to make sure you have 220 power to outlet and not just a blown breaker. next check power at drier itself to make sure your cord is not bad.. if all is well, check door switch and make sure it clicks like it should.. Next, UNPLUG CORD FROM OUTLET!!!. pull back off drier, and locate thermal cutoff switch, located near bottom on the blower fan housing. locate the thermal cutoff fuse which is usually white in color approximately 2 inches long and narrow with two blue wires, remove and replace approximately $14.95 in Oklahoma. Replace and your back in business....

Dryer tumbles, no heat, thermo fuse has been changed. Can it be the cycling thermostat or the heating element?


If you have changed the thermal fuse you may have a defective thermal cutoff (located at the top of the heater housing in the back). The thermal cutoff will come with the high limit thermostat located at the bottom of the heater and you should change both parts if the thermal cutoff is bad.
You can take both of the parts (the heater and the thermal cutoff) to a parts supplier to have them checked for continuity (they should both read "closed" if they are good).
Good luck to you!

IT HAS STOPPED DRYING tHE TECH FIXED IT 3 WEEKS AGO SAID IT WAS A FUSE NOW IT IS DONG THE SAME THING


Hopefully, the unit and the vent tube was cleaned of lint, etc. prior to replacing the thermal fuse. If not, it will likely continue to blow fuses.

How do I get to the heating element and fuse for the Whirlpool LEQ9508PW1?


Fairly simple, Disconnect the power, remove the large backing plate on the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse is a long white skinny piece with two wires on it, just to the left of the vent outlet. The heating element is on the bottom of the heat box on the right side of the back, and has 2 screws holding it on. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
