The dryer still runs and the drum is turning. No heat. Yesterday I did notice the outside of the dryer got very hot for a while.


The thermal cut-off has blown open due to the high-limit thermostat failure to cycle off in order to regulate the heating element temperature as the noticed extreme dryer temperature indicates. These two components are wired in series with the heating element as a safety measure to cut power to the element should the dryer temperature go extremely high like your case.

Disconnect power then make sure the lint filter is clear, the vent system is not restricted, and the inside of the cabinet is clean. A vacuum cleaner may be used to extract lint built up inside the dryer cabinet particularly the bottom. Replacing both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat is a must but only after the all areas mentioned are cleaned.

MY DRYER WON'T HEAT.


This is usually caused by a blown thermal cut-off which blows and cuts power to the heating element due to the failure of the high limit-thermostat to cycle off and regulate the heating element temperature. Check the dryer for clogged lint screen and/or restricted vent system then replace both thermostats when either of them has failed. Both are located on the blower housing.

Click on the links below for the detailed troubleshooting of this dryer problem. Just follow the instructions that are applicable to your dryer since you did not specify the dryer's exact model number.

Whirlpool AWZ7303 condensing tumble dryer . Drum not turning although it is heating


If your Whirlpool dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers, thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F. Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer is easier than it sounds. Instructions:

  • Clean out the lint screen in your Whirlpool clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryer to overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer's heating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and wash it in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.
  • Look behind the dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions. Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lint that has built up.
  • Go outside and check your Whirlpool dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, bird nests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger your dryer's thermal fuse.
  • Disconnect your dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.
  • Access the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer by removing the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in place and it should easily come free.
  • Look between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wires connected to it.
  • Bypass the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer while you perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together the two wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it back in. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start." If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermal fuse needs to be replaced.
  • Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer. Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape that you used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from the thermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer and discard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing and tightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.
