Hi, The timer will not move if there's no heat when you have it set on the automatic cycle. I need to know if this is electric or gas. Please get me a make/maodel 3 so I can help you through this.

Thanks
Vic

    Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the element on the right hand side. Plug the dryer back in and test to see if there is 240V going to the element posts. If there is voltage, but no heat, change the element. If it does not, you need to test the thermostats for continuity. If any of the thermostats are open, replace it. I hope this helps you.

    Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.



    Thanks
    Vic

I have a Whirlpool LER4634PQ1 it was working just fine then all of a sudden the dryer just keeps running the knob on the dryer doesn't move and the air isn't warm. Any suggestions on what to s


there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

My whirlpool estate dryer has all of the sudden stopped heating up. What is the likely cause of the problem


I would check to see if your exhaust vent is clear first. I actually had a bird build a nest in mine once :) If that doesn't seem to fix the problem you most likely have a burned out heating element. Hope this helps :)

The dryer is running, but it has no heat. When you place the dial on 30 minutes it doesn't move at all, it just stays on the number. It does run and move the drum around, but no heat at all.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Whirlpool ggw9868kq .Ducts are clean, airflow is good. Drum rotates. Dryer warms up then heating stops. happens in both auto and timed cycles.


My whirlpool dryer Model GGW9896KQ2 seems to run ok but it doesn't seem to heat up properly and takes several cycles to dry clothes. I checked the exhaust vent and it seems to be blowing air out ok. Also, it appears the dryer goes to the cool down cycle way to early. In addition, the dryer will sometimes shut off before the time is acutally done. help--I don't want to spend money for a tech or even a new dryer. It's only 8 years old.

Our Whirlpool Dryer Will not heat at all and not


Your timer may be the cause of both problems. Not cycling and no heat.
Whirlpool makes a excellent dryer and is worth repairing. Replace the timer first. If you still have a heat problem most of the other parts are around $30.
