Remove the backside and check your heating element and the limits mounted on the side at top and bottom.

Model whirlpool le7680xsn1 just stopped working suddenly. no prior symptoms.


Need more info. When you say stopped working what exactly do you mean. No indication of power at all, light no on when door is opened, no heat, drum does not rotate? Is it plugged in? Did the circuit breaker trip? Check the door switch?

The drum all of a sudden started making making grinding noises, took out several dollars of change and other stuff, now drum will will not turn, belt seems fine, heat fine


Make sure with a manual movement of the hand that the drum is rotating and the motor is free.
now when the drum was struck did it cause any errrors in the motor orr the control board or a fuse tobeblown.
so checkthis out if the drumis free and the motor is not getting supply from the control board.
Check the safetydoor switch to latch for the unit to work, check if any wires were pulled off while you repaired the drain to cleanup.

I have a used Kenmore Series 80 dryer & the drum stopped turning


Good day,
Not hard to do but check the 2 rear wheels that support the drum and change at the same time if needed. Inspect the belt tensioner as well.
Here's a good tutorial on the belt change.

No heat, will not dry


Hi,
Is your dryer electric? Assuming so, you're probably right that the heating element has gone out if the drum is turning but there is no heat at all.
I don't know if you are a do-it-yourself type, but if you take the model/make/serial info to your appliance parts store, you can obtain the correct heating element and install it yourself.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!
