Question about Whirlpool WED5800S Electric Dryer

1 Answer

We have been having trouble with our airconditioner since moving into our home. We switched AC technicians and found a very simple problem. The dryer vent is directly behind the AC unit and is clogging up the coils. Is there an extension that I can use to move this away from the AC, or do I have to reroute the whole venting system?

Put an extension elbow on the pipe that exits the house and route it away from the condenser on the A/C but dont let the pipe extension get excessively long or your clothes wont dry as efficiently

Dryer has power wont start


Hello Dom - Being that you have narrow down some possibilities, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you get to the root cause:

1. Make sure the dryer is plugged into outlet, and plugged in correctly.

2. Is house fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped? Replace fuse or re-set circuit breaker.
3. Make sure that electrical circuit is not overloaded and correct. The dryer must be on a circuit by itself. Overloaded circuits can damage the dryer and possibly cause damage to home. I would recommend reaching out to a Licensed Electrician check to make sure it is on a circuit by itself.

4. Thermal limiter tripped or an internal problem with the dryer. A thermal limiter automatically turns off the motor (electric dryers only) in the unlikely event of an overheated situation.A service technician must replace the thermal limiter after correcting the fault.

If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

Hi, I have 2000 Toyota Sienna, after using the AC for some minutes its cut off and never cool again till I switch it off and on it later. I just replace the condenser and re-fill the gas. What could be...


The catalytic converter has no bearing on your air conditioning system. If the compressor is shutting off, it is because of inadequate freon, or air and moisture in the system. When you replaced the condenser, the dryer should have been replaced with a new one. The system should have been completely evacuated of any old freon and fresh freon and oil put back in the system. If the a/c guy didn't change the dryer, then the system has been contaminated with whatever was accumulated inside the old one. If your catalytic converter is bad, the computer will trigger trouble code and the check engine light will come on. Have ethe computer scanned for trouble codes.

in order to recharge the ac you first must clear the trouble code for the ac off warning. when you get this warning the computer shuts down the compressor to keep it from running without the lubricant that is in the freon. clear the trouble code and the compressor will run and you can recharge the ac.

First id make sure you have both phase of AC power coming into dryer.
Go to your house panel and reset yoru house breaker for the dryer. If in the USA the breaker should be a 240volt / 30amp breaker. It will have two breakers tied together at the trip switch.
If AC power is good at the dryer outlet then it could be one of the followings.

  1. Open Thermal limit fuse or trip switch.
  2. Open Heater Element.
  3. Control board is faulty.
