SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer will not heat

check the thermal limit on the side of the heater housing and the blower thermal on the blower housing
the emement limit is at the top of the blower housing and will have 2 red wires going to it
the blower limit will have blue wires going to it
withe the power cord unpluged, remove the wires to these two limits and with a meter on rx 1 ect. read across each of these if you do not get a meter fluctuation , all the way to the right as you check the part os bad

SOURCE: Water builds up behind heat exchanger

I don't know if there is a cure for this. Bosch never answers my calls or my e-mails, but I have found that by blowing in the hose to disengage the lint collecting there and then sucking out the line will remove nearly all of the build up amd drying will resume.

SOURCE: electric whirlpool dryer not heating

Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most models). If you have 220v there the heater element is out. If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater the problem is in the controls. The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating (s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1. Hope this helps. With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow a kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan on the motor are the 3 main causes of low air flow. If yours has little holes in the inside cabinet these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem. Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

Have you tried unplugging it from the power source and then plugging it back in? This may prompt the mini computer inside the dryer to reset to the proper default settings. Best of luck!

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

Dryer blowing & rolling but no heat


There should be a little white plug on the front of the dryer. (lower left) Take that out and start the dryer. IF your ignitor is working you will be able to see it turn red through the whole. If you dont change the ignitor. then it will light the burner.
