Whirlpool Cabrio electric dryer

I have the Cabrio dryer and my wife said she was doing laundry the other day and it just quit working. She said the outside shell was so hot she couldn't touch it.

When I got home, I turned it on, and the display all read okay, but when I hit the start button nothing happened. I opened the door and realized that the heating element was still heating and hot air was filtering into the drum, but the drum was not moving and the blower was not blowing.

Ctwoods, this sounds like the heating element has shorted to the heater can. What that is doing is leaving the element at 1/2 power on all the time. If this happened, then the heat kept going up until it blew the thermal fuse which caused the motor not to run. So check the heater and any fuses in the dryer. You can go to Service Matters for Whirlpool Service Manuals on this model.

Completely dead and lid is locked


Try an extension cord to another powerpoint. Place the drain hose in a bucket and slowly lower it to the floor, lift it up when the bucket is full, continue till the washer is empty or no more water will come out. Turn the washer off at thew wall and unplug it, wait a few minutes and plug it back in, this may reset the machine so it starts working again.
Hope this helps
