Whirlpool Electric Dryer

I have a brand new Whirlpool electric front load (Duet) dryer. The controls are all working, but there is no heat. Any ideas?
Thank you!

    We have the same problem - it's tumbling fine, but there's no heat and the clothes aren't drying. We just flipped the circuit breaker and that didn't work, so we'll try some other things tomorrow

    Here is the test you need

    TEST #3 Heater Test

    This test is performed when either of the

    following situations occur:

    ✔ Dryer doesn’t heat

    ✔ Heat won’t shut off

    This test checks the components making up the

    heating circuit. The following items are part of

    this system:

    – Harness/connection

    – Heater relay

    – Thermal cut-off

    – High limit thermostat

    – Heat element

    assembly

    – Centrifugal switch

    – Thermistor

    – Machine control

    electronics. See

    ESD information,

    page 1.

    – Console

    electronics

    Dryer does not heat:

    1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.

    2. Remove the toe panel to access the thermal

    components. See figure 11, page 7. Locate

    the components using figure 8.

    3. Using an ohmmeter and referring to the

    wiring diagram, measure the resistance from

    the red wire at the thermal cutoff to the red

    wire at the heater.

    ➔ If the resistance is about 10 ohms, go to

    step 5.

    ➔ If an open circuit is detected, go to step 4.

    4. Visually check the wire connections to the

    thermal cutoff, high limit thermostat, and

    heater. If connections look good, check for

    continuity across each of these components.

    Replace the one that is electrically open.

    5. If no open circuit is detected, measure the

    resistance between P2-5 (red/white wire) and

    P2-6 (black wire) at the machine control

    board.

    ➔ If 6–7 k ohms are measured, replace the

    machine control electronics.

    ➔ If the resistance is less than 1 k ohm,

    replace the thermistor

Your electrical connection is not correct on the dryer. check your owners manual and if it is correct make sure you didn't pop a circuit breaker.

SOURCE: dryer runs, no heat Whirlpool duet 9250

Most likely, it is the thermostat which controls the heating element. The Bios Thermostat will have two wires connected to a round disc which has a flange and screw holes to hold it next to the blower vent or the center of the drum. Use an ohm meter to see if it open or take it to an appliance parts store to have them check it for you. You may also see a thermal fuse and a high temperature cut-off thermostat which should not read open with an ohm meter. Any open thermostat will prevent the heater element from turning on. The part should be about $25.00.

Whirlpool Front Loader Dryer Door will NOT stay closed


I have the same issue with the door popping open. If you push hard on the bottom of the door then it snaps in. I think the bottom latch is broken or misalligned.
