Whirlpool cabrio dryer not heating. Already checked the fuse box and hoses. Can't open back;fused. No videos online show our model. Can't figure it out! It's less than 2 years old. Model: WED5610XW1

Start from about 0:50 seconds and watch how to remove the lower panel. Yours will be the same.
This has the parts breakdown to help you out from there. You most likely have a bad heating element.
This one will show you how to test several different components for heating issues. Yours will be mostly the same. Start at 0:50 and this will help you diagnose the heating element and limit switches.

Whirlpool dryer overhead I change termo fuse all the thermostat but is still overhead is cabrio steamer dryer


Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

I have changed the heating element and tested the "white" fuse and both termination switches (on the heating element and above the heating element) and I still get no heat to the dryer. I have...

Sounds like you have an open thermal limit. If the white fuse ever goes bad, you will know it because there will be power at the socket but, the dryer will not do a thing--testing the fuse should also show it is open. Some dryers have more than one thermal limit--one for the blower and one for the element. There are instructions for "general dryer no heat" on here that are step by step. A quick search should find what you need. Please unplug your dryer before you open the cabinet or access the controls.

Dryer stopped in middle of cycle back was very hot let cool down tried to restart nothing after much playing around bypassing switches and such determind thermal fuse was shot ( pulled off wires and...

I'm assuming the thermal fuse you bypassed is the small one on the right hand side of the element case. Part # LA-1053. Comes with new safety t'stat also ( the one above the element). Use both. T'stat on blower housing is the cycling t'stat. Unlikely to cause problem. You need to determine what caused the failure. Most often themal fuses fail due to improper airflow. What kind of venting does your dryer have. Vent connector from dryer to wall should be rigid metal or heavy metal flex. I see alot of foil venting sold by DIY stores, but not approved by dryer manufacturers. Easy way to check is to start dryer with vent attached, hold top up a couple of inches and look at element. It should glow soft orange. If element is very bright, red hot to white, then remove venting from the back and see if element glows less bright. If there is a noticeable difference then you will need to correct airflow problem or thermal fuse will blow again. Also check lint filter by putting in sink and running water thru it. If it holds water then scrub it clean even if it doesn't look stopped up. Fabric softener sheets leave a wax coating on the filters.

My LER463rJQ1 dryer is only about 4-5 yrs old and it doesn't seem to be heating as well anymore. I don't know where to start...thermostat? heating element? or what.. What do you suggest.

I assume you mean the clothes are not drying as well or as quickly as they use to.? If so I would start with the Vent system ,85% of extended dry times are vent issues. Start by running the unit and going outside to the dryer vent and check for a good flow of warm air,if very little air is coming out of the vent you need to clean or have the entire exhaust system cleaned out.. With out good airflow you will just end up with warm moist clothing the airflow helps remove the moisture.. If not a airflow problem it may have a thermostat issue not letting it get hot enough or not staying hot long enough,,Hope this helps GOOD LUCK

How to replace a heating element for a kenmore

Hello there
i am posting instruction for this dryer below
(For some help with that, and before buying an element you might not need, please see my article entitled 'The No-Heat Dryer'). Note: Always check airflow out the vent before firing up your dryer with its new element. A partially clogged vent can burn out an element - even a brand new one - fast! Just run the dryer on the 'no-heat' or 'fluff' setting, then go outside and check for a good strong flow of air from the vent hood. If there's any doubt, Whirlpool makes a cool little airflow test kit for their dryers that will tell you for sure, from inside.
There are basically 3 styles of heating elements in use for these dryers.
1) Most common is the 'long' one, part number 4391960, accessed from the back of the dryer, and which looks like this:
wpl%204391960%20el.jpg To replace this one, power down and pull the dryer out and remove the back cover. You'll see a long, vertical 'can' on the right side, with the element coil inside. To remove this can, simply pull the element wires (can be hard to remove; I use a long-nosed pliers), the limit thermostat wires just above them, and the thermal fuse wires if equipped (this is a little device mounted high on the side of the can, with two wires attached). One 5/16" hex screw at the top and a little strap holds the can in place. Remove this screw (You can look through the small hole that lines up with it, originally to poke a long screwdriver through), tip the can rearward, and lift it off its two bottom hooks. Once the can's out, one screw holds the element inside. Remove it, and the old element coil will slide out. Slide the new one in, reverse this process, and you're done!

The heat on our 2 year old Cabrio dryer just stopped working for no apparent reason. Everything but the heat appears to be functioning normally. Help!

Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal switch, in the element circuit, that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires replacement.
It is possible that your element has failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.
