Question about Whirlpool Dryers

I have a whirlpool cabrio electric dryer and when I start it it only runs for few seconds and shuts off and starts back like it's stuck in wrinkle guard mode. What could be the cause of this.

SOURCE: electric dryer shutting off

It sounds like a thermal breaker is engaging and then automatically resetting once it cools off. I'm guessing that if you were to feel the dryer when it was running, it is really hot.

The most likely problem is that the exhaust vent for the dryer is plugged up with lint either within the dryer itself or in the part that is in your wall and exits someplace outside (could be as far as the roof). When the hot air can't escape the dryer overheats and shuts off to prevent a fire.

You might have to take apart the dryer to get at the blockage if it is there but try this first. Unplug the dryer. Make sure that it is cool. Pull it away from the wall. Disconnect the vent hose in the back. Stick your hand in the opening and start pulling out lint. Once you get everything out you can, plug the dryer back in - leaving the hose off - and turn it on. A bunch of lint will blow out. Let the dryer run and see if it shuts off. If not, then you know there is no problem with your dryer.

The next step is to clean out your vent lines. Depending on where they run and how long the run is, this could be a difficult.

When you are all done, connect it all back up.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet electric dryer doesn't always start and shuts off

Have you cleaned the exit hose thoroughly? Pulled the exhaust line and cleaned?
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. The element has a contact in the 'timer' circuit too.
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.

Lights come on, press start and nothing ..


Start Switch is bad, When they go out it leave's a open circuit and all light will come on but no action.
After the circuit is closed then it tells the dryer to start cause the circuit activates both the timer and the motor.

Good Luck

Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

Verify that the wrinkle prevent switch is good. If so, the timer is likely the problem. Sometimes the switch contacts inside the timer can be cleaned to restore operation, bit it is a tricky item to disassemble and reassemble.

Hunting boots no no!


If you have one of those fubuloso wrinkle guard whirlpools, they will buzz and start back up on their own in the cool down portion of the cycle the idea being the 2nd timer will keep the clothes from wrinkling by buzzing and then coming to life for a few minutes. Then it waits 10 minutes and if you aint got the clothes out or opened the door then it will repeat.
