Roper electric dryer will not heat after replacing heating element and thermal fuse. what's wrong.


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when the dryer stops heating and the thermal fuse is not part of the heating circuit, it is part of the motor circuit. The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

Troubleshooting Whirlpool and Whirlpool-Made Electric Dryers Running But Not Heating

Does this model have two heating elements it get hot but not as hot as it should takes too long to dry cloths


An electric Estate dryer, manufactured by Whirlpool only has one heating element. If your dryer is STILL heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some items to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The element should cycle on and off as the dryer cycle runs. If it is glowing steady and really bright, its a good sign that you may have a clog somewhere. The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. Please include your MODEL NUMBER (if it is different from the one you listed this question under), so I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope you find this information is helpful.

NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat beginning to fail.

Whirlpool dryer model LEB6000PQ0 its not heating up anymore''it starts it turns but the clothes dont dry its only 2 yrs old.


check your breaker first.A dryer will run on 110 but wont heat.if not breaker it could be your thermal fuse or element.the thermal fuse is located on element cage,unplug machine and test for continuity to your thermal cut off fuse which will be the top one on cage and check continuity to element.

No heats from the dryer. the mechine is 4 yrs old.


First thing is to check the fuses. Often there is a separate line for the heating elements. If that fuse or circuit breaker is tripped there is no heat but the dryer will still turn.

There are heating elements behind the drum that may need to be replaced if broken. Also check thermostat control.
