Whirlpool dryer doesnt heat, time and shut off when you open the door

if you have it on time dry and it doesn't count down the timer is bad but it should stop when you open the door unless you have a broken door switch too,just open the door and push in on the switch with your finger,it should make a clicking sound,if not the door switch is also broke,if you have the timer on auto or more or less then it won't move without heat.on auto the heat comes on when the dryer reaches temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance a little,then the heat starts again and the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry by using a sensor instead of time.

The Hotpoint Dryer shows sweat on the inside door and takes longer to dry the clothes. Marilyn


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

My general electric dryer DDE5300 is no longer warm so clothes don't dry, though it runs. How can I tell if its the heating element or the thermostat?

You Will have to use an ohm meter and the tub has to be taken out. You can on a GE open the door and push in on the door switch and starte it with the door open and look straight in and see the heater come on but if either the heat element of thermostat is out the element wont come on. If you live in ahouse with fuses instead of circuit breakes or a fuse box between the dryer and main circut box check the fuses an electric dryer will run on one fuse but not heat if this is the case switch the fuses and see if it runs if not one fuse is bad.

Clothes will not dry

Make sure the vent hose is clear of any clogs, then check to see if the element is coming on by pushing in the door switch with your finger and looking to the back of the inside of the dryer. You will also have to check the thermal fuse for continuity.

Does not heat

"Steam drying will get how but the air that comes later to actually dry is cold so the clothes never dry"

I am assuming "how" means hot in this sentence, if so, I think I can help! There is no "steam drying" phase for your dryer so what is probably happening is; the wet clothes are being heated properly [as a result causing steam] however if this steam does not escape frum the dryer it will simply condense back onto the clothing [leaving them moist/wet].
Check your flexible tube from the dryer and the vent on the outside of your home to make sure they are unobstructed. Hope this helps!

Steam comes out of dryer after cycle and door is opened

Probably has a restricted vent. Go outside with dryer running and check air coming out vent. Should be a good blast...not just a breath. Clean out the vent and make sure it's not kinked. If it vinyl or foil vent, replace it! Also make sure lint screen is cleaned everytime.
