Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Gas Dryer
Same thing as the others...the dryer starts but does not heat up
Check the following to address this issue.
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.
2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

My gas whirlpool duet dryer was working fine...one load finished (it dried fine). I then put it another load and now the heating element will not come on. By the way they appliances are one week old. This is the 8th load I have run with not problems until today. What gives?
