Hi, I have a Whirlpool dryer mod LHE780 that is running without heating up. Can you suggest a fix?


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...

No heating?


If the unit runs and heats for a short time, then only runs without heating, it may have bad gas coils(2 solenoids that are screwed on to top of gas valve)

If the unit runs without any heating would check the ignitor or the thermal fuse.(ignitor is fragile)

Check it is not accidentally set in air fluff....

Most all whirlpool dryers are front serviceable by lifting the top(two screws by air filter and putty knife pushing in about two inches on each side in front) Some have a lower front panel, most you remove the front to access parts. Sharp edges and unplug while servicing. The ignitor and thermal fuses can be ohmed out at a service store. There are other possibilities, these are the most common, good luck.

My dryer only blows cold air I replaced the


Yes it is quite possibly your thermostats, A kit can be purchased for the majority of all Whirlpool dryers and is around $30.00 part number is LA-1053. But it can vary based on your model. However the first place i would have technician check is the fuses or breakers inside your home as this can often cause the dryer to only run on 110v when 220v is need to run both the motor and the element.Hope this helps.

Thanks

Whirlpool dryer


not element, same element runs Hi and low temp
whirlpool dryers have 2 thermostats,
40degreeC (low)100F
60degreeC (high)140F

the 60degree thermostat has failed
cost is between $15 and $40 depending on how the 'parts guy' feels on that day
the dryer is easy to open, check any of the 'change belt' questions or Joks instruction brief

Water in my Whirlpool Front Load Dyer exhaust..


Greetings ireneosanch,

Has it been taking longer than normal for your dryer to dry the clothing also leading up to this? Sometimes your ventilation can become so clogged that it will cause condensation to accumulate in the exhaust hose. I would check the vent on the outside of your house and see if it is clogged and you might also have to have the actual ventilation cleaned out leading through your house.

I hope this helps!
