I have a whirlpool electric dryer.. when I turn it on its been having a problem with staying on or not heating at all. It will spin and stay on but no heat.we have changed the element and it seemed fi


Sounds like a tripped circuit breaker in the power panel for the house. The breaker for the dryer is actually 2 breakers connected together so if one trips so will the other. Sometimes this does not happen and only one breaker trips. This condition removes power to the heating element but still supplies power to the rest of the dryer. Check to see if the breaker will reset by turning off and back on several times. Then check the power receptacle that the dryer plugs into with a voltmeter set to read 240 volts AC. If no 240 but 115 is present then replace the circuit breaker.

I have had my whirlpool dryer about 4yrs + (geq9800pw2) has always worked fine. Last week it started tripping ckt breaker toward the end of drying cycle. As of this morning, it blows ckt breaker...


leave off the oven and a/c breakers and plug dryer and reset the breaker. if not tripping occurs then one at a time trip back the oven first. if no trip then trip off again and trip the a/c. if no trip then trip the oven back. if trip you may have a wire problem. if dryer trip any way then possibly you have a short in dryer. check the heating element wires,power cord at the dryer side(terminal block).

Barrel of dryer turns but no heat


Your heating element needs to be replaced, or the 240 breaker in your breaker box has tripped. I was a maytag technician for several years...So, check your breaker box for any tripped breakers or the heating element in the dryer needs to be replaced, or the t.stat for the element has blown.

The heating element is shorted. This is an electric dryer, right? replace the heating element. Make damn sure it's un-plugged when you work on it!

Whirlpool Duet Dryer getting very hot, tripping breaker


what size is your breaker how many amps it should say on breaker are you cleaning the lint screen with it on top if the drier is getting too hot there is a device in it that's called a thermal limiter that would blow before the breaker would trip what kind or you in a house or apt. now on high heat can you hold your hand on the side of the drier.or cant touch it look at the vent under your house and tell me 1is it hanging down under the house then coming up to the hood 2whats its diameter3whats it made of we will go from there ok.there are three thermostats in that drier the first one runs at about 150 160 max second is a safety in case the first one fails it cycles at about 250 third is a safety if the drier exceeds 300 it will shut the heater down and wont rest it has to be replaced
