Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II: No heat

I cleaned vents, lint traps, blower motor any thing I could get the vacuum hose at. The lint trap casing was very clogged. I get great air flow but no heat. The dryer is a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II and the model is GGC985HQ!

    Hi, I have an Kenmore Eco Care electric dryer model 417.83042201 that doesn't turn off, it has to be manually turned off by moving the timer dial to the "OFF" position or by opening the dryer door. I removed the back vent, dryer vent hose, as well as the lint filter assembly inside and cleaned out all lint debris but it still will not turn off. I welcome any suggestions of how I can remedy this, thank you!

Didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II: No heat - 7152136.jpg

I had the same problem, and found you can use 10 amp auto fuse for a temporary fix.

Thanks to Catriver, I fixed my Whirlpool Gas Dryer, LGR5636EQ2. It wasnt heating up. The heating element wasnt even going on. I checked voltage to the heating element and I wasnt getting any. So, after reading this from Catriver, I took out the Thermal Fuse and checked continuity and there wasnt any. So I replaced it and now the thing works again. !

    Now I have another problem with the dryer months later. The heating is fine, but on the Auto Dry-miser setting (with the *), the knob is not moving to the off position when the clothes are dry. I came back hours later, the clothes were super dry and the unit was still on the * setting. Could it be the timer? If so, how is that changed?

take a screwdriver and push it in below the door at the top of the bottom panel, near each end of the panel, there is a springclip to pry on that that releases the panel and it will fold out and then lift off. then you can get access by removing a few screws.
BE SURE TO UNPLUG BEFORE WORKING ON IT.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet electric dryer taking too long to dry

A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent  doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket  thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle between 120 degrees and 170 degrees. Check that the drum seals to make sure the are not worn out.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Working but no heat

i need help fixing my 5 year old dryer. whirlpool duet model GEW9200LW1. I have replaced the thermistor. I tested (with an ohm meter) the heating coil, thermal fuse, high limit thermostat, & heating element and they were all fine. I replaced the electronic control assembly and the user interface. THE DRYER STILL WONT HEAT.
Then it occurred to me that the sensor may not allow the dryer to heat if its not sensing wet. Could this be true? Have I been trouble shooting this wrong?
Help me.

Where is the trap?


You'll have to be a little more specific please. What kind of trap are you thinking of/referring to? Not aware of any type of "trap " on this model. Are you talking about some sort of lint trap? And what problem/s are you having with the washer (like what's it doing or not doing)?

Whirlpool dryer ler7646eq1 will not heat


First the most obvious and you've most likely covered yourself look at the lint trap/if clogged clean thoroughly with vacuum cleaner pull out lint trap and **** up as far as deep as you can get some of the lint that you don't see and believe me there's a ton depending on your exhaust/vent type . Next go outside check the vent attached to the outside of home for clogs/lint buildup lastly here's a trick I've personally used SEVERAL TIMES on my old ge dryer if you have a LEAF BLOWER pull dryer out of the way and next go outside remove exhast vent usually 4 phippls screws going out next remove vent/trap outside go back inside and use the leaf blower to blow out all of the lint caught in the vent tube your be surprised how much was in there. HOPE this quick fix addresses your dryer issue if not its most likely the dryers thermostat they're fairly cheap online. Just trying to save you a buck friend. Have a good day Ryan in Minnesota

Heats but doesn't dry


If your clothes are coming out hot but still wet you have a vent problem Either the lint trap at the dryer is clogged or the vent coming out of the dryer to the outside has a build up of lint. If you don't clean the blockage it will burn out the heating elements and cause you more problems. A shop vacuum will take care of both problems in cleaning out lint trap and dryer vent

Good luck hope this helped you some

Dryer not drying clothes very well


Is the dryer getting hot? Is the airflow coming out of the exhaust strong? If the airflow is good, but not hot, the problem is most likely a thermal limit sensor.(These sensors determine the air temperature, and cycle the heat source) If the airflow is not forceful, but the vent hose, exhaust vent, and lint trap are clear, then the blower/fan may be encrusted with lint, or broken. The sensors and blower can be difficult to get to, for cleaning or replacement, but possible. It depends on your skill level. Remember to always disconnect the power when attempting a repair on any electrical device!

Lint trap


There should be a rectangular flap on the top panel at the rear right of your dryer. the lint filter is in a chute if there is just a hole here then the filter is missing.
