Question about Whirlpool WED5300S Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Whirlpool dryer model number WED5300SQ0 wont start

The dryer is only two years old and this past week the dryer just stopped working. When you press the start button it makes a small click sound like it normally does but then nothing happens. I checked the dryer door, and the power from the wall and both are fine. About a month ago my mom learned about dryer fires and cleaned out the dryer. I am not sure if maybe she clogged the vent and made it over heat and blew a fuse? If anyone has an idea that would be great thanks for the help in advance

I have a roper dryer but don't know what year it was made. the model number is REX4635EQ2 the Ser. number is MK0775343. What year model is this?


The second digit/character (K) indicates the year and the 2-digit numbers (07) immediately next to it indicates the week the dryer was made. The year code K is 2000 and your dryer was made on the 7th week of the year 2000 or February 2000. Click on the link below for the table of year codes of Whirlpool and Whirlpool-made appliances.

How old is my dryer it was a hand me down the model is LHE7800W1 and the serial is M11713347


The manufacture date is dtermined by the serial number on the appliance. The following link explains how to determine the date code from the serial number on a Whirlpool:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576437-determining_the_age_of_your_whirlpool_ap

The second digit represents the YEAR of manufacure. The first two numbers after that represent the WEEK. So...according to the serial number you provide, this dryer was manufactured the first week in May of 1981. That would make your dryer almost 29 years old.

FYI: Even though the dryer is old, many of the parts are still used in modern appliances today, so parts are still available. Whirlpool did not change their parts too much over the years. I found a parts listing for this dryer available at pcappliancerepair.com. I hope you find this information helpful.

Wondering what year out dryer is from. The model is 76992100. The model series is 69921-79921 The serial no. is F83005027 The dryer is old, but how old? Thanks, Mary Lou Devaney, 174 Cambon Ave., St....


The model number you provided has a prefix of "110" accompanying the number. That indicates the manufacturer of this Kenmore dryer is Whirlpool. The manufacture date is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

The first two numbers in the serial number identify the WEEK it was manufactured. The second digit identifies, the YEAR. According to the information I provided, that would mean your dryer was manufactured in July of 1988. So your dryer is 21 years young.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: These were well built appliances. The same design is used in Whirlpool appliances to this day.

Model WED5300SQ0 not heating and timer not working


Well with moving it around and all it could have any number of things happened. If it wont tumble, no lights, no heat or anything check that the plug has 240volts to it. then check the wiring going into the dryer may have broke wires or anything like that. but I would check the plug first if it has no power what so ever. If you check the plug and it doesn't have power check the breaker to see if it is tripped.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Plug dryer in wall wont start


The most obvious thing to me is that the cord may have been loosened or damaged by the move, or the terminals in the machine may have loosened. Either test the cord on your "new" machine, or replace it with a known "good" cord. Wait a minute....you already have one of those....
Try it, it may be the very thing!

Whirlpool gas dryer won't start


you most likely have a bad motor. Motors run around 100 dollars since the machine is 20 years old it would be a good idea to replace it with a new dryer. if i were you i would stick with a whirlpool product.
