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

Ive changed the ignitor, sensor, thermostat, fuse-thrml, and thermostat-fix.. my dryer still is only heating for only 5 min then goes cold. what can i do? model: LGR7646JQ0


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.

Whirlpool gas dryer, drum doesn't spin


You have a broken or loose drive belt.
You can order a new one online (repairclinic.com) have your make and model numbers handy.
There's also exploded views to help you.

You'll need to remove the front panel and drum front panel, the drum and route the new belt around the tensioner pulley below the drum...
It's a bit tricky but if you take your time you'll be able to do it..
Let us know if you need assistance with disassembly.

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.

The dryer heat works but the drum is not spinning.


Raise the top lid and inspect the belt. If it is broken, replace it.

Clothes dryer doesn't spin


The way most domestic clothes dryers are made, it's usually hard to determine that the heating part works without the drum turning.

But, chances are, the drum belt is broken.

Please give the specific model number of your unit for a more complete response.

Whirlpool Dryer wont spin


If it heats but doesnt spin, most likely the belt. May not be broke though. May have fallen off. Let me know if you need more help.
