Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal 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 elecment 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.

Whirlpool drier not drying and wont shut off


Bad timer. Your timer controls when it shuts off also the heating.

Why is my Tumble Drier keeps beeping without stopping a few minutes into the drying program?


It sounds like the carbon brushes are probably worn down - they ride on the drum (in the top ) and determine the amount of moisture left in the clothes for drying - they connect to the drum and the metal bar inside the dryer - A wet clothing item conducts between the two giving the dryer an idea of how much moisture is left in the load - equal to how much time / heat is needed to dry load as required. These brushes wear out and need to be replaced over time

Why my Whrilpool Drier AWZ 555 is not drying the clothes and power light is blinking?


Check to make sure it's getting full 240vac power. Some or most driers are fed from two breakers in the box. If one is tripped you aren't getting enough power. That could be causing the blinking light. Also check for enough exhaust flow to prevent overheating.

The gas drier takes 2 or 3 times to dry everything works fine but wont get real hot


there should be a an opening on the front panel or a piece of plastic that you can pop off to see the ignitor.start the dryer and while your clothes are drying after around 20 to 30 minutes look in the hole and see if the flame is lighting or is the ignitor just glowing and then it goes out without the flame lighting.if this is what's happening and sounds like it is you have bad gas coils.they will work until they heat up and then they fail,when they cool down they will work again for like 20 minutes and then shut down again.this is an easy fix,just take out the two phillips screws that hold the coils down on top of the gas valve,remove the cover and change out the coils.let me know what you find

I have a whirlpool dryer and it heats up but dosent dry clothes


you have a blockage in the vent system. If the clothing is hot and wet when you remove them then there is a lint blockage either at the lint trap in the machine or at the exhaust hose on the back of the drier

I have a whirlpool duet. The burner stops after about 15 sec and clothes don't dry


Two things can cause this one is the vent hose and or the vent going out side. If it (the hose or the vent) is stopped up this will happen. Also The Drier has a protection switch mounted in the burner area. This switch is going bad. It is there to shut down the drier in case of a problem it is kicking in/out too soon most likely it is going bad. When it shuts off, open the door let things cool off for a minute see if it will restart.

I ran the drier 3 times using medium press. The heat is on and it is hot, but the clothes is not dry.


Hi, Does this dryer heat at first and then stop heating late in cycle?
Remove the lower front panel and start the dryer. Look and see if the ignitor glows and if you get a flame or not. If the ignitor glows and then shuts off before you get a flame, the coils on top the gas valve need changed.
If the ignitor does not glow, UNPLUG the dryer and check the fuse located on the blower housing (whits with two wires going to it). Check and see if it has continuity to it.If there is no continuity, change it.
Please let me know if this helps you so far.

Machine drys fine on timed cycles but shuts off before clothes are dry on automatic cycle.


First try cleaning the moisture sensors with rubbing alcohol, these are two silver colored strips located inside the drier just below the lint cleanout

Whirlpool drier has no heat and won't shut off . . .


it was most likely caused by the timer not turning off and burning out the heating element or a temperature switch or tripping one side of the circuit breaker in the house. it really needs to be checked out by a professional. unless it is old then you might want to replace it.
  • best case scenario:
  • the breaker has tripped (turn it off then back on to find out)
  • the TIMER MOTOR is the only problem <$30
If the timer itself is bad then it will cost a lot more.
