Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn

Kenmore 110.67082600 I change main board and test the elements inside and still no heat.

electric or gas? if electric check ur thermal cut off and hi-lo thermostats as wel as the cycling thermostat, they can check them for u at any appliance repair shop or parts place. by the way are u getting the full 240 volts at outlet cuz if u only get 120 you will run the appliance but not have enough current to run the heat cycle?

The upper cabinet of our Maytag Neptune MCG8000AW Gas Dryer has always "dried" my dress shirts to come out without wrinkles. Now it seems to have power and light but it is not producing any heat

Most of the time a "no heat" condition on a gas dryer is due to one of two things: burned out ignitor Appliance Parts and Accessories Repair Appliance Parts Discount Parts... OR it could be a thermal limit switch that has failed which are easily replaced with this kit Dryer Thermostat Kit At one time, there was a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) out on this particular dryer that referred to a change that was made to the electronic control board eliminating the need for an external heater relay in December 2002 (Series 61). The new control board is supposed to work in place of all previous electronic control boards. Good luck.

Whirpool dryer awz 865

If you had line voltage to ground you'd trip the circuit breaker, without a schematic cannot pinpoint it exactly but all dryer gas or electric have a high limit thermostat which opens if the exhaust is plugged up stream, remove the exhaust tube connected to dryer and see if it heats correctly if it does the exhaust leading out of the house is plugged also the operating thermostat you referred to has a set resistance reading at room temp this tells and changes based on heat this is what controls voltage to the heater would need a full model number to give more specifics.

I have a whirpool duet. The lights on the front panel light up, but the dryer will not start. I just hear a click and then nothing ????

Remove bottom panel and check the thermal fuse just behind the ducting. If this is blown it's a inexpensive fix. If it's good you may have a bad control board. Remove control board an inspect the back side of it for burning.

Location fuses Whirpool duet dryer

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing outlet to the left of the thermistor. For electric dryers, the thermal cut-off and high-limit thermostat are located on the heater housing. For gas dryers, the high-limit thermostat and the flame sensor are located on the burner.

Disconnect the dryer from the power outlet and turn-off the gas supply for gas dryers.

Remove the two screws at the bottom of the toe panel securing it to the cabinet. Pull the toe panel down and off the cabinet.

Check the continuity of the thermal fuse with an ohmmeter set to X1. The ohmmeter should read zero ohms. Replace both the thermal fuse (part #3392519) and the thermistor (part #8577274) if the resistance reads open or infinite. Remove the securing screws and install the replacement part.

Do the same with the thermal cut-off. Replace both the thermal cut-off (part #279973) and the high-limit thermostat (part #3391914) if the resistance reads open or infinite. Remove the securing screws and install the replacement part.

The high-limit thermostat is located next to the heater terminal block and next to it is the thermal cut-off.

Slide the toe panel in place up and into the cabinet and secure it with the screws.

Note: Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the component before performing the continuity test.

My dryer dont dry

Possible causes depend on the dryer model and type. Electric dryers work diffeently from gas dryer.

Both electric and gas dryers usually have a thermal fuse located at the back of the appliance. Check if thermal fuse/switch is blown or tripped , and eventually replace it.

If the fuse is ok, and appliance is running but not drying, then next part to test will be the thermostat.

A dryer thermostat can be tested using a multimeter , set to read impedance at RX1. If the thermostat is good, it must have low Ohms at room temp, and return no continuity (infinite ohms) at temp. limit.

At this points things are different depending if dryer is gas or electrical.

On a gas dryer test valve , fan and ignitor.

On electric test the heating element and fan.

On both gas and electric, last part to be tested is the timer control board. If all other parts are fine, go for the timer board.

My Whirlpool Duet Dryer is not heating up. Unit is only Two year

If it is a gas dryer. Sounds like thermal fuse. It costs about $12.95. Most appliance part stores carry it all the time. Very easy to replace. Also can be ignition switch (also cheap). If you know someone who is mechancally inclined, after removing fuse,they can run an electrical jumper cord to the two open ends. If the dryer begins drying, then it is definitely the fuse.
Go to Whirpool site and get part number and diagram to fix. Maytag repair can help at a costly figure after they order part since Whirpool bought Maytag.
