My whirlpool dryer stopped working today and will not put out any heat, do you know what might be the cause? Model # leq9858pwo


Short answer if the dryer drum still runs, but there is no heat: 90% it's one or both of the heating coils. 10% it's the control switch or relay.
If the dryer will still start and the drum will still turn, find instructions for how to test the heating coils. The test for the coils must be done with the dryer UNPLUGGED! It will involve taking a panel off the dryer.

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!!!!

The heating compenent works, but drum won't spin


Have you checked the belt? That's generally the problem when a dryer stops spinning.
