If they dryer is running and you have no heat make sure that you have the correct power to the unit .if so it most likely is a bad thermal fuse.those are the first to check then check the heating element.

What I do with new dryers are to use the warranty as long as you can. If it does not work make them fix it. In order to see if the unit is working properly it has to run through several times. Whirlpool dryers have problems with their boards. Could be a faulty element. So many things as it is new. With older units it's easier to locate. Think of your unit like new cars today, they make them so hard to work on. You almost always have to take it to the dealer. Let me know the model as I can give you more information. Hope this helps.

Electric dryer heats up and trips breaker


you need to turn the power off to the dryer outlet then to make sure it is off try turn on dryer if it doesn't turn on you may now unplug dryer and remove screw in the center of the outlet then check to make sure all wires are tight if they are then you need to check the wires on the dryers plug "the pig tail" make sure they are tight.If all are tight then you have a problem internally and should contact a repair professional.

Plug sparked when moved and now no heat and timer doesn't work what is a pig tail? how do we replace


Since the electric plug sparked when you plugged it in, I would check out the dryer main power cord or pigtail. Use a multimeter or ohm meter to check the dryer cord for continuity. This will show you whether the dryer cord is good or not. No continuity = bad cord. You can also use the meter to check the electrical block where the dryer cord is connected. Try these things first and let me know what you find out. We'll go from there, okay? Hope this helped and best wishes.

Electric dryer internal short


Make sure that the dryer is disconnected from the wall outlet before doing any repairs on it. Electric dryer work on 240 volts AC and this could hurt or even kill you. loose connection on the terminal block will cause the wires to get hot. and melt the terminal block and wires and the pig tail wires. you will have to replace the terminal block and pig tail wires and make sure you use the correct bolts and make sure you tighen them. let me know if this helps.krazytech
