My Estate by whirlpool dryer is not heating up. This is the second problem I have had with this dryer. When I put the dryer on 60 mins. it would stop once it reached 30 mins. and I would have to restart the dryer. Now the dryer is running but not heating up. We have checked the heating elements, no problems there. What could be the problem? I would like to do it myself instead of paying a repair man.

Re: Dryer not heating up
Yup.. Same as a water heater.. Generally will run a constant 120V to the bottom Element and you can see 240 at the top and supply all day.. (Until the reset snaps).. Check for a Thermal and its probably the issue).. Snap disk in the shape of a football, Silver w/2-3 wires I/O.. Be careful if you dont work on 240V or electrical for that matter.(UNPLUG PERIOD)...Mine kicked out the other day when the main lost 120 and the house half quit..

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
check out this electric no heat tip...
mcwilliams if you pull the over off the front of the dryer at the bottom you can see the gas burner assy. Put the dryer on time dry and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the ignitor, then hear a click, then the heat come on. In the auto dry mode, the timer advances along with the dryness level. No heat, No timer advancing. If you don't see a glow, there should be a thermosat on the heater can, see if it is tripped. If so if it is resetable, reset then try again. You may have a bad ignitor.
