SOURCE: no heat

First port of call is thermal cutouts - little switches that monitor the temperature of the air going into the drum and cut the heat off before it sets your house on fire if something goes wrong and it all starts to get too hot.

Disconnect the power, then open the machine up. Look for the metal duct that directs the hot air into the drum (you'll recognise it by the funny-shaped blower bit at one end, and the collection of terminals sticking out of it at odd places about halfway along).

You'll find that some of those terminals are associated with flat coin or button like objects held tight against the surface of the duct (the number and exact appearance of these objects varies a little from amachine to machine). Look carefully at these, and you'll find that one or two of them have a little reset button in the middle of them. Check again that the power is off, then give each of these buttons a gentle prod. With a bit of luck, one of them will make a sharp clicking sound - you have just reset a tripped thermal cutout.

Check whether this has worked by running the machine. If it has, then you need to find out what made it overheat in the first place and stop it happening again. This usually just means giving all the filters and ducts a thorough clean to remove lint that's restricting the airflow.

If the thermal cutouts aren't to blame, then the next suspect is the heating element. Diagnosing this is a bit more involved, though still managable as a DIY job. Check the cutouts first, then come back if you need help checking the element.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio - How do I tell if my heating

If you are comfortable useing a volt meter and a ohm meter I can walk you throught the steps otherwise you need to call a repairman, If you are not getting any heat and the tumbler is turning it is possible the element is bad again only a test meter can tell for sure or you can take the dryer apart and look at the element to see if it is broken make sure the power is turned off at the breaker first also unplug the dryer.

Electrolux dryer model EIED55HBM0 dented on top and is now grinding when it runs. How do I take the covering off to push out dent?

There are two clips, one on each side that are between the top and the front piece of the machine. Take a flat screwdriver and press each clip in and the top should just lift up

My whirlpool duet dryer is working but is very loud like there is loose change in it. It is also banging at the top and has left a dent in it.

Maybe you can take off the cover, one of the rollers is either off or thing is to replace both rollers. When cover is off gently push dent out make sure dent doesn't reoccur. Hope this helps. PS..Never put anything heavy on top.

The top of our whirlpool duet 8300 dryer just got dented and is now making noises. You can see the drum rubbing and making the top bounce. Any ideas on where to start so I can get access to the underside...

The shell must be removed from the unit to service.

There are 2 screws in each rear corner.

Remove them - then slightly pull the front forward to disengage the clips.

Cannot find the model number on my Whirlpool washing machine. It is a top loading machine, with such features as: 4 Load size, 4 Tempature settings, 8 cycles, 4 speed combinations, commercial quality....

If this was a scratch and dent model, model number may have been removed prior to sale. If not, you should find it on the back edge of the washer at the very top as you look over the back of the machine. If you can't find a model number, bring the part(s) you need to a servicer. They may be common parts or there may be some identifying numbers on the parts themselves. Good luck.
