Question about Whirlpool Dryers
First thing to check is look for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted connections in the dryer power socket. You need a voltmeter for this. If no 220 volts, check the house electrical panel to see if the dryer circuit breakers (pair) have tripped--push them OFF, then ON. Recheck for 220 volt at the dryer socket. If voltage is still missing, you may have one or two bad breakers--replace the pair. If ok, try the dryer. If it starts, then quits, you have a short inside the dryer--likely the heating element. Nearly full tear down to get to the dryer element in back of the drum. Weigh repair cost versus a new dryer. Hope this helps!
