Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again.


Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Temp. Switch, make sure a positive selection is made.
Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,
Dave E. (Illeagle)

SOURCE: CANT FIND MODEL OR SERIAL NUMBER ON DRYER

There should be a nameplate along the door opening. This is normally where Whirpool puts their information. Just open the door and look along the door or door frame opening. The nameplate data can also be located along the back of the operator console on some models. Let me know if you still can't find it. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: ESTATE DRYER BY WHIRLPOOL

you might have a high limit or thermal fuse that has failed due to overheating. these will go bad when there is a lack of air flow, probably from a pinched off or plugged vent. it could be a bad element but not as likely as the thermostats. if you can get the element housing out and check all of them with a VOM meter, it will show you which one has an "open" circuit.

SOURCE: gas dryer runs but no heat

Hi, Remove the little cap on the front panel lower left corner and start the dryer. Look into the hole and see if the ignitor glows (5 - 10 seconds)
If the ignitor does not glow, try this: Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
If the ignitor glows and then shuts off before you see a flame, try this:
Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto. I know this is a lot of info but, it's the most popular problems.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: My Estate gas dryer will not tumble

Most dryers are driven by a belt around the drum, motor and tention pulley. Check the belt.

My estate dryer model number EED4400WQ0 runs alittle while then shuts of it is heating


One of the causes of this is OVERHEATING. Dryers are not maintenance free. You have to clean the duct work and under the unit to remove lint. The lint screen does not catch it all. One of the leading causes of house fires is lint in the dryer.

I suppose you want to clean the lint vent to outside. Clean out the filter first by removing the manual filter and pulling off all stuck lint. Try this link to clean the vent:

I have a dryer that blows cold air


That problem is usually a bad (shorted out) heating coil. It can be replaced, but we need the model number to assist you with where to go for a part. The model number is usually inside the door of the dryer.

If you aren't handy, you may want to call for a service. Here is their website:

No heat


If this is a Whirpool model dryer (this includes Kenmore, Estate and Roper), the heating element will be located on the lower right hand side with the back panel removed. If the dryer does not have removable back panel, the heating element will be located inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side.

Since you posted no brand name or model number, I'm going by the heading you posted this under. If your dryer model is different, please post back with your correct information so that I may assist you better.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this answers your question.
