If your thermal fuse is blown you will not recieve heat. if you put your dryer on sense load it will keep running because it is not sensing that the clothes are getting dry which in return your timer does not
advance

WED5321SQ0 dryer doesn't heat or shut off once it's running


well if ran all night you maybe be running a even heat or auto dry cycle. i would first try on a timed dry see if heat then. if does heat (which probably wont) you will be need to replace either the sensor or board that controls the auto dry. or a very small chance that the timers bad. most likely you have a bad heating element. if the machine doesnt heat on the timed dry, then you need to check continuity on the heat fuse(located on heat element housing). if good then check continuity on heat element. i would say you have a bad element or heat fuse.

My dryer wont heat up or shut down


It's not heating up because the heating element is broken and should be replaced. It won't shut down because the thermostat isn't sensing heat and continues to run while expecting heat. So replacing the heating element should get it running properly.

Whirlpool Imperial Electric Dryer wont heat up


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Element heats, dryer tumbles, no heat in drum, never shuts off


Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer.
You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

It wont stop running... dries perfectly but wont stop. Thanks! ;o)


either a timer or the heating element or a blocked vent also there is a resister on some kenmore/whirlpool dryers and if it is out it wont advance in the auto cycles. It should advance in the timed cycle with or without heat

Whirlpool electric dryer not drying


If the drier drum is still turning I would suspect a separate fuse is open for the heating element. Checking this may require openning the back cover. It may also be a defective or open heating element.

Whirlpool electric dryer ran all night and won't heat


Yes it will heat. The two are normally not dependent on the other. The element could be bad. Check the breaker first, then the connections in the back, then the element. The timer could be bad itself allowing it to run all night. This could be a blessing in disguise as the clothes would have been damanged possibly from all the excess heat.
