Whirlpools are great. There is a flame sensor near the igniter, it gets dusty and can't sense the flame. Carefully wipe it off, without bumping the igniter, it's super delicate. Sometimes the sensor can be removed for cleaning, just held in place by a little screw.

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer model LEB6000PQ0 its not heating

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.

SOURCE: dryer does not release any heat

Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Gas dryer gets hot for a few minutes then goes cold.

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

SOURCE: No heat to dry clothes. Dryer is 4.5 years old.

By far, on that machine the "thermal fuse" accounts for more than 50% of all heating problems.

Unplug machine and remove back cover. On the air chute in the middle back of the dryer you will see a small narrow bakelite device with 2 wires connected to it. It is held in with 1 screw.
You will need an ohm meter to test it, or remove it and have an
appliance parts house test it for you. If bad replace.
Whirlpool part #3392519.
The second common problem on that dryer is the heating element and can be checked with an ohm meter as well.

On rare occasions one side of the 230 volt supply is out.
The side running the motor is o.k. but the heater side has lost power.

Caution: your dealing with 230 volts here. remove plug receptacle cover and check with a volt meter for power.

Sometimes, a Whirlpool dryer may not function as you'd like.Although specific details vary by model, the company offers several generalguidelines to troubleshooting your Whirlpool dryer and getting it back intoworking order.

Verify that thedryer is connected to its power source if it won't turn on. Whirlpool alsosuggests checking your home's circuit breaker, as the high power needs of thedryer may have tripped the circuit. If the circuit has been tripped, reset itby flipping it back into the "On" position. Push the door of the dryer. Whirlpool designed its appliances to not turn onif the dryer isn't secured and notes that the dryer door may not be fullyclosed even if it appears shut. Push firmly at the top and bottom of the door,as some Whirlpool models have two latches. Press the "Start" button again. Whirlpool reports that some modelsrequire you to press and hold the button for five seconds to fully start themachine. Depending on the model, the button may be labeled "Hold toStart," "Start" or "Push to Start." Check that the dryer's settings knob is set to an actual drying mode and notsimply "Air" or "Tumble." On most Whirlpool models, themanufacturer states that the settings knob should be set to"Accudry," "Timed Dry" or "Automatic Dry." Clean the lint trap, typically located at the top of the dryer and removedby pulling its plastic handle. Over time, lint and dust builds up here. Thethicker the trapped layer of lint, the slower your dryer performance. Whirlpoolrecommends removing built up lint after every dryer load. Remove some of the wet clothes inside the dryer if it's taking an unusuallylong time to dry your clothes. Whirlpool warns that placing too much clothinginside the dryer reduces hot air circulation, which also reduces dryingcapabilities. Recommended dryer load s vary, with compact Whirlpool modelsholding approximately 3.4 cubic feet while extra large Whirlpool dryers holdingmore than 7 cubic feet.

My whirlpool dryer will not dry clothes in one try.takes a second time to dry a load. especially jeans or towels


Make sure the lint filter is free of dirt. If this is a gas dryer, listen for the burner switch on. If you hear it switch on and switches off in less than a minute, you will need a new gas valve solenoid. This part goes part and goes on safety - switch off gas. In return you only get a air dry (not heated).

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

Burner turns off too soon. Clothes don't dry.


Most likely you have a clogged vent system that is going to the outside.try this remove the flex venting from the back of the unit and then start up the unit see if it still does it if not you wil need to clean out your venting if it still does it your cycle stat willl need to be replaced
