SOURCE: dryer won't tumble

Check thermal fuse located behind rear panel mounted on dryer (depending on model of the dryer) duct. Fuse is the component with 2 blue wires and is white in color. Try jumping 2 wires together or OHM out fuse. Fuse being bad is a sign that either
a) Dryer vent is clogged ..... If dryer takes any longer than 1 60 min cycle to dry loads than the vent IS CLOGGED!!
b) Dryer thermostat (next to fuse with 4 wires 2lg red and 2sm)
is not cycling proper
c) some other electrical short causing element not to cycle proper

Check Temp of discharge air with thermometer
on High should cycle on somewhere around 120
and back off at no higher than 170 no less than 155

Whirlpool Tumbledryer AWZ-121/3 OVERHEATING PROBLEMS


When was the last you cleaned the hose leading off he back.
Pull the dryer out and remove the exhaust hose (probably held on with a hose clamp so you will need a flathead screwdriver.
Once it's off take the hose from a vacuum or shop ac and stuff it in there and get out everything you can. Do the same win exhaust hose, and from the front at the lint filter.

Whirlpool dryer awz 121 only tumbles counter clockwise. This is a dryer that briefly reverses direction, so the only tumbling is when it reverses. The rest of the time, the dryer makes a noise but d


You may want to contact a professional that will have the diagrams for your machine online. there are some here or you can go to another site. like (Just answer.) Be more specific about your problem. It can be fixed . There's no worries.

Are you saying that it does not heat up either ?In addition with not tumbling clockwise ?

Disconnect the dryer first. You can remove the top and front of the dryer to check to see what is happening. If it does not heat . You may need to replace the temperature control relay. If that does not work , the heating elements themselves may need to be replaced.

For the tumbling problem, they also have relay switches that go out.
BUT, if it is tumbling to one side and keeps tumbling then that will probably be enough to dry your clothes. As long as it is not too heavily loaded.

Whirlpool AWZ 8577 Tumble Dryer The water is not collecting in the top water container


You have a water pump in the base of the appliance this can sometimes fail or block. On the back of the dryer there should be a pipe just pull that off and blow down it, if there is a block this may well remove it. If not it's likely a pump failure.

Hope this helps
