SOURCE: I have a Whiilpool electric

the "moisture sensors " are located just to the right side below the lint filter housing. pop your hea inside and youll see 2 metal strips. thats them. with a scotchbrite pad, you can clean them off, usualy become fouled by dryer sheet residue. twice as long to dry couldalso be an indicator of a vent thats not completly free, kinked or becoming clogged .

If the dryer2.gif runs, but does not heat, the following link explains how to troubleshoot an electric dryer with a no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

First, begin by unplugging the dryer and verifying the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240VAC across the two Hot terminals (left and right slots). If the voltage is incorrect, check to make sure you don't have a breaker tripped. Some homes use 2 separate 120VAC breakers to provide power to the receptacle vice using one 240VAC breaker.

If the voltage IS correct, leave the dryer unplugged and remove the cover plate on the terminal block in the back of the dryer (this is where the power cord is installed). Plug the dryer back in and take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If the voltage is good, you have an internal heating problem. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the receptacle, you have a bad power cord.

NOTE: If the wires at the terminal block are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the hot leads. The center conductor is neutral or ground.

The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require 220-240VAC. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer may exhibit these symptoms.

If you determine the problem to be internal, the heating circuits will either be located in the rear of the washer on the right hand, or under the dryer drum on the right hand side. Usually, an easy way to determine is by the location of the lint screen filter. If the filter is on top of the dryer, the heating circuits are in the back of the dryer. If the lint screen is in the door, the heating circuits are located under the dryer drum.

All dryers are not constructed the same. However, the Heating Element is located inside a heater box. The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) will be located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals. If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are determined to be bad, replace both components at the same time. That is why these components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the TCO/Thermostat replacement kit (if required) is part number 279816. The heating element is part number 279838.

All these parts can be found at appliancepartspros.com, searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. The average cost of these components varies, so shop around for the best price.

If you have any questions, please let me know. If the model number is NOT correct, please post back with a correct number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

Lights come on, press start and nothing ..


Start Switch is bad, When they go out it leave's a open circuit and all light will come on but no action.
After the circuit is closed then it tells the dryer to start cause the circuit activates both the timer and the motor.

Good Luck

Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2 LEQ8000JQ3 w/ Accudry- how do I make sure the Accudry feature works properly when I replace element?


The orange wire mounted to the 250 limit at the base of the heating element connects to the timer motor. When the element is on the motor cannot move forward in autodry. When the element is off the timer motor slowly advances. that is how it works. If you small limit on top is blown you have a restriction in your venting system or a clogged filter chute or a bad cycling thermostat. I worked on one and did a video recently.

Dryer does not heat up. cleaned exhaust, tried different cycles. still nothing. possibly heating element?


On the back of your dryer there are two over temp sensors, most times one will go bad for know reason, looking at the wires on the back you will see them going into a small silver cap looking thing this is the sensor , after you unplug this dryer remove the back of this unit, follow the wires till you see the sensor this has two wires on it , remove the wires and check the sensor for continuity . And of coarse inone is found then replace this sensoe it has the part number on it and if i remember corect it was around $4 , remember there are two sensors so look for both , if you dont have a tester then remove the wires and use a small jumper wire in it's place , start the dryer to see if it heating , if it is order the sensor , do not use the dryer with out the sensor , you could get a dryer fire !!!
