Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Could be a few different things,bad heater,popped thermal fuse or the high limit on the heater box,if the dryer hasn't been taken apart and cleaned out in a long time and it should be done once a year if gas and 18 months if electric,clean out the cabinet where the motor is,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and blow out the vent line,if the air isn't moving and it's been taking longer to dry your clothes most likely you popped the thermal fuse,you have to clean it out or the fuse will keep popping and it's a none resetting fuse or the high limit thermostat popped on the heater box,both are from the dryer running to hot and either the thermal fuse or the high limit will pop as a safety.you'll need to unplug the dryer and get in there with a meter to see what part is bad,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter and then remove the metal duct that the filter slides into and you can read out the parts,you have to remove at least one of the wires on the part you check,on top of the blower wheel housing you'll see a white piece with two wires going to it,pull off one wire and check it with your meter,if that's good go to the right and check the heater and the t-stat in the back on the heater box,hope this helps
