When you say no heat, do you meen like no heat, only blowing air or no heat as in some heat but not enough? If its compltely no heat what so ever only aor is blowing, Its is probably your thermo fuse. Disconnect power cord first. Go to the back of you dryer panel and take of all th screws around back panel that hold it up, once you take it out you will see wires and fuses....the thermo fuse is the small white skinny oval shaped fuse. i think its on a slant..bit its small white skinny ovel shaped fuse....If you have a a multi meter ohm it out. Put the meter on the ohms setting and out the 2 leads on the each of the fuse terminals. if it read "OL" you need a new thermofuse. If it reads 0.0 ohms then its good. But you dont have a meter, go ahead and change it out anyways, its probably bad. hopefully this helps

Whirlpool model LGB6000KQ1 electric dryer. I have to run the dryer two to three times before the clothes dry. There is a little heat, and I cleaned all the vents. Do I need a new heating element?


if the exhaust hose is clear of debris and you feel a good flow of air through it then ' Yes ' I would say that the heating element is bad.

Extreme heat comes out from behind dryer a orange glow is in the dryer vent could this be fire


that's the glow from the heater,this is normal.the dryer should be cleaned if it's electric i would clean it every two years,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of the dryer where the motor is and disconnect the vent line from the back of the dryer and clean out the vent line,if it's a long run to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure the outside duct is clear also.if you do this you wont have to worry about a fire,your clothes will dry on time,you'll save electricity and your dryer wont run hotter than normal and your parts in the dryer will last longer.let me know how you make out

Whirpool dryer 10 years old is still heating but taking very long to dry clothes. Checked dryer vent and it is clear. Will heating element help?


If your heating element is still heating up the cause lies elsewhere. Filter for dryer both at the base of dryer and filter location . If you are getting heat then airflow is the problem. how is the fan motor in front of heating element

My dryer stopped drying wont get hot what could be wrong?


i'd check for 220 volts fist sometimes a breaker can trip one leg letting it run but no heat, next i check for vent blockage then check thermal fuse, if fuse is blown and vent was clear is blower wheel striped, check temp dosen't go over 185 deg at discharge hose if it's going over change operating thermostat. if fuse is good check thermostats and element for continuity if good need to check for power to all above if only 120 volt bad switch in motor or timer

No heat in a 1 year old Whirlpool ncabrio dryer


If there is no heat, it has nothing to do with the vent, but everything to do with the element. Yoiu either have a bad element or are not getting power to it.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Whirlpool dryer not enough heat


There may very well be a clog in the vent line. Check the vent to be sure it is clear. Make sure to check the outside vent cover. Some of these vent have screen/louvers that can get clogged.
