Whirlpool not blowing or tumbling

I think our whirlpool recently overheated and we have since cleaned everything out but now it won't tumble or blow air but the heating element does come on in the back, what can we check?

Check to see if belt is still on drum. might have broke. thats the only thing that would cause the drum not to rotate but still should have air flow. the blower wheel is hooked up to the motor itself. your problem might be the motor itself has gone bad. if belt looks good then your motor is not turning.

Whirlpool Tumbledryer AWZ-121/3 OVERHEATING PROBLEMS


When was the last you cleaned the hose leading off he back.
Pull the dryer out and remove the exhaust hose (probably held on with a hose clamp so you will need a flathead screwdriver.
Once it's off take the hose from a vacuum or shop ac and stuff it in there and get out everything you can. Do the same win exhaust hose, and from the front at the lint filter.

How do i fix a tumble dryer blowing cold air


When you have to put this question here, I don't think it is wise to try to repair it yourself. It can be caused by lots of different things, Like a defective heater, a lose connection or a defect thermostat. When your dryer does not have an overheating security switch that came out and you can't reset it, a skilled technician should see into the dryer. It works with voltages, to dangerous to work with, when you don't know what you are doing. Please be careful.

Not spinning


A dryer has a lot of parts to make it heat, tumble and blow air. If it quit tumbling there are many things that could be wrong. You could start with checking the thermal fuse or belt switch or door switch, from there your into timers and motors. If you have electrical experience go for it :-) unplug first ;-)

Whirlpool LER 6620 heats, but does not tumble.


if the dryer heats the motor should be good. if it hums its either runing or the hum is a stall noise . if belt is in tact then if motor were going so would the drum . so i think the motor isn't going just humming and the heat sw in the motor is stuck closed with lint and you need to replace the motor .. take the belt off and turn motor if it turns free . the blow it out good and reinstall belt and try again ..mm

Whirlpool AWZ 7303 tumbling but not drying.


blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

WHIRLPOOL AWZ2303 TUMBLE DRYER ONLY BLOWS COLD


It's call a bad thermal cut-out. You should have a thermal cut-out and a high limit thermostat located adjacent to the heating element (usually mounted right on the heating element housing). They both should read a short or fairly low resistance in the case of the thermostat. If the thermal cut-out is blown it is not a resettable device and must be replaced. The tco is usually sold along with the high limit thermostat. It is HIGHLY recommended that you replace BOTH at the same time. DO NOT attempt to bypass any of these devices either. They are there as safety devices to prevent overheating. You could end up with a fire if you do. Now...with all that said, the tco will blow for a reason. Not cleaning the lint trap will contribute to it, but the big item is the ducting. If the vent ducting is clogged you will experience longer dry times and eventually the tco will trip again. Take the time to THOROUGHLY clean and/or replace your vent ducting from the wall all the way to the vent opening outside. In addition, while you have the dryer open THOROUGHLY clean the inside as well. This includes the air baffle where the blower fan is located. Rule of thumb: if you have lint INSIDE the dryer, it's clogged somewhere. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
