Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Yes i have a whirlpool estate dryer and the fuse is blown. i had a repair tech to come in and he stated that the fuse is the problem. he stated to me that he didn't have a fuse for my dryer model number which is teds680eq2, he stated that he could troubleshoot it and it will work just the same by connecting both fuse wires together because the purpose for the fuse is only to heat the dryer. He stated that it want cause a fire of damage any other components. he put both wire on in the dryer begin heating up immediately. he also said that many tech want tell you this because they know that this part price is very high, about a 60 dollars or more. do you know how true this is or what shold i do. is it safe or will cause some problems later on.

Find a new servicer. The most expensive fuse is about $20. It is VERY NECESSARY as a safety from overheating and even possible fire. Hope this helps!

I have a whirlpool estate dryer and it will not heat up

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Check for a blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a blown thermal fuse. The filter being full of lint has most likely caused the fuse to blow, Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Estate dryer by whirlpool

I have the same exact model dryer and it is doing the same thing, in addition the timer does not move at all in the auto position, the dryer will run indefinitely unless you shut it down manually, heating is also sporadic.. would it be the thermostat or the coils we use our dryer daily also.. Thanks
