SOURCE: Whirlpool Dryer Model#GEQ9800LW0 will not get hot

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If I may add with the indulgence of trystakarm, other components that may and can cause this fault could be:

  • thermal fuse, once off would have to be replaced;
  • thermal cutoff, automatically resets itself when temp goes down;
  • relay, that actually does the switching on/off of the heater element;
  • logic controller board, that controls the relay based on triggers from other sensors.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: dryer does not get hot

Most likely your heating element has gone bad. This will happen from a number of different things ranging from just plain age to clogged vents causing it to overheat and go out. Also with a gas dryer your thermostat may be bad. The thermostat tells the dryer when to release the gas and ignite the flame to heat the drum. This would be my first suggestion on what the problem is. There is also a thermal fuse on your dryer that may be the problem but I really think it's the thermostat. It's hard to say without hooking a volt meter to it to find where the current is stopping but these would be the most common causes. It's always a good idea to have your vents cleaned out at least once a year and if you have a long distance between the dryer and the vent outside get the entire hose cleared out yearly. This will save you money in the long run on parts and save you from any fires. With gas dryers, I have seen it a few times in homes, the lint catches fire due to the open flame and does a lot of damage.

Do try out the thermostat first, it shouldn't cost you but around 20 dollars for it. If you open up the back panel of the control panel you will find the wire diagram and it will show you where the thermostat is located. Do make sure to unplug the dryer first though. Trust me, 110 volts of electricity is not a fun feeling for anyone, I know from experience. If you have any other questions let me know. I hope this helps you out enough to get this fixed, I know what a pain it is to have your dryer out. Good luck.

The element is at the bottom of the unit. Usually they are located on the right bottom but when you take the housing off, you will be able to see it.

Sounds like one of the cavity switches is bad. Open back of dryer, you will see wires that attach to little clip next to each other. Try jumping wire from one side to the other, do one switch at a time and try dryer to see if heats, if you get heat replace that switch. These switches burn out if dryer gets to hot, usually from to much lint in duct work. Also vacuum out duct work in wall and on back of dryer.

SOURCE: Gas dryer gets hot for a few minutes then goes cold.

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

I have a whirlpool dryer model #len 2000pgo and my wash doesnt get dry but dryer gets warm ...not hot like it should. what could be wrong???


Is this a gas or an electric dryer as the model number doesn't match any dryer and depending on gas or electric it can be very different things that are wrong. The gas dryer will probably need a new set of coils but I need to know what kind of dryer it is to narrow down the exact problem. Please let me know and I would be glad to help you fix this as fast as possible.

Whirlpool gas dryer model lg6811xpn not getting hot not even warmis there a fuse,electronic ignt. or something else i could check


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

THE DRYER IS NOT GETTING HOT


Hi

Please check the following things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.
A page for checking gas dryers is here.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Whirlpool mod # WGD5300SQ0 gas dryer gets hot but does not stay hot Is it a thermostat or radiant sensor or something else


by all means when dealing with natural gas consult only trained professionals....as natural gas does not have an odor..the odor that you smell is an actually additive that has been place for just this reason.

Whirlpool gas dryer


From the sound of your problem, it appears you may have a faulty overtemp switch that gets too hot , opens the circuit to disable gas and flame, then cools down and allows it to start again.. Since you didn't provide a specific model number with your question.. use this link to find replacement whirlpool thermal fuses etc.. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/whirlpool-dryer.php#fuse

Hope this helps..
