there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace

press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly. This is a secret test and reset for your dryers control, so please keep this between us. The whirlpool people would be heart broke if they see this posted on the web ;-) . If your dryer will still not start after this test, you may need a new control. If you need a part let me know and I can ship it right to you. Good luck and I hope this will fixYa and saves you the $400.00 it would cost for whirlpool to send a certified tech to come to your home.

Make sure that the vents are cleaned to include outside. Where it hook on to the dryer make sure that the housing is cleaned also. That should take care of the problem. Thankyou and if you need more help let us know.

Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze

This repair will most likely be much cheaper than buying a replacement, unless you just want to make a jump to gas. First, check the venting for the dryer. Clogged venting can cause prolonged drying times. It could also be caused by a blown thermal fuse, bad heating element or high limit thermostat. If the venting is clear all the way to where it exhausts to the outside, then I would suspect bad thermal fuse or high limit thermostat. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. It is best to replace both the thermal fuse and the high limit thermostat at the same time and they often come from the parts supplier as a set. I'll attach a photo of a fuse/thermostat for reference. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped some. Best wishes.
