My whirpool is not getting hot enough to dry the clothers

Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum. Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

My Whirpool dryer stopped working after I just finished a load and tried to start the next one. The power source is working and the vent is not clogged. Where do I locate the belt?

If it's not working at all, the first thing to check is power. You should have a dipole 30 amp breaker and you have to make sure that both legs are hot going to the machine. Remember that it's possible for the breaker to appear to be okay but one leg has tripped. Inside the unit you need to be able to check for continuity on the thermal fuse(s) and across the heating element. The door switch could have failed as well, which would not allow it to tumble or heat.

My whirpool dryer won't power on.

First check your power. The most common cause of this is the white plastic thermal fuse, located on the exit chute. These blow whenever air flow (plugged or restricted venting) is improper, or if the unit is running too hot. They also wear out from age. Hope this helps!

Whirpool Dryer......

GAS or Elect. does not make a diffrence 95% of drying too long problems are from a clogged vent try to run a normal load with the vent off the the back letting the hot air into the house if it drys normal then you need to clean out the venting going to the outside If you are worried about the lint blowing inside you can put an old pantiehose over the vent to catch the lint dust
