Whirlpool duet not heating, replaced thermistor

Ok, I have been reading and troubleshooting from this website, and it has been pretty helpful, but I am afraid that I need additional help. I first got the E1 error on my dryer, after some research, I was told to replace the thermistor. I got the part, and replaced it, and then the dryer worked. It dired about 5 loads of clothes. Just when I thought I had done something good, the dryer stopped heating. Everything works except that it does not get hot. I got a book from the library and read more on this website. I have checked for continuity on the thermal fuse, and the two pieces that are on the outside of the heating element box. All are good. Should the thermistor have continuity? How do I tell if the heating element is shorted or needs replacing? Any additional info would be appreciated.

If it just won't heat, it's a thermostat issue (most likely). You can try a different setting and check if it works. There are different thermostats for different settings. Also there is a contact that is operated by the motor to insure that the drum is turning for heat.

Want to un set auto fill so I can set up an additional account

I'm pretty sure the autofill feature is a function you have to enable or disable on your browser, which will affect your gmail.
1. If you are using Google Chrome, you can disable the autofill feature by clicking on the icon in the far right corner of your browser (it looks like a stack of three horizontal lines).
2. Scroll down to "Settings" and click on it.
3. Scroll down the "Settings" page all the way down to the bottom of the page, where it reads, "Show advanced features..." in blue letters, and click on it.
4. Now scroll down to where it reads, "Passwords and forms".
5. Untick the "Enable autofill to fill out web forms in a single click".
If you use a different browser, you can follow similar steps.

Good luck!

Upgraded to windows 7 cannot access the internet

Make sure you have the drivers install for your Network Interface Card and/or Wireless. Are there any yellow question marks in Device Manager? Download the drivers from the Acer website for your particular model. Usually the Vista drivers work ok with 7.
If drivers are installed and device manager is clean, then it's a setting and/or your router needs to reboot in order to see you on the network.
Windows 7 has some pretty decent troubleshooters built right in, so go to the Network and Sharing Center and try that too.
Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!

Disk can not be read

try cleaning the laser with a Q-tip and some glass cleaner, dip the Q-tip in the cleaner and wipe it on the laser and take the dry side and dry it off. If that dosen't help your problem then I'm afraid you need a new laser. The good news is they aren't that expensive (around $25) and they are pretty easy to install too.

Error Code F 02, and water won't drain

Here's a helpful link you can try that explains the "F02" error and how to troubleshoot. Best of all, it explains how to minimize the mess from a potential flood:

Read through the information thoroughly prior to beginning any repairs. If you do not own a shop vac (wet/dry), you may consider purchasing a small inexpensive one. A size 5 gallon or less is sufficient to drain a front loader. If you do not understand something and require require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Is Intel Celeron processor speed ok for programming?


Nothing much you can do with the speed but you can of course always add more memory. Additionally, you may want to streamline the startup programs to the barest minimum.

As to overheating, try a matching docking station with additional fan/blower.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
