Whirlpool dryer LGR5636PQ0

My dryer will not heat and will not cut off after a cycle. I've checked Cycling thermostat and thermal fuse and both have continuity. Could the problem be my ignitor. The dryer is gas

SOURCE: LGR5636PQ0 Whirlpool Dryer has no heat

Possibly there's a problem on the coils inside that why it can't suppy the heat to the surface. Even the thermal fuse is ok but the coils supplying never responding to give such heat.

I have a Whirlpool electric dryer M/ WEP5300o that will not heat. I have replaced the Cycling Thermostat, High limit thermostat, Thermal fuse and heating element. It still doesn't heat. There are


If you have fuses on your electric panel it normally uses 2 fuses, 1 for electric power 1 for heat. The same may be true on the circuit board panel check this to eliminate this possibility

I have duet dryer GEW 9250PW0 with no heat. I have changed Thermister, Thermal cut off, high limit thermostat, heating element, and main board. I've check pwer cord and oulet and they check fine


You didn't mention checking the "cycling thermostat".
The two large terminals will be closed, and the two small ones should ohm out around 250 ohms. You also need to check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. You could have one of the two breakers thrown. Here is the cycling thermostat in case you find it bad.
Keep me posted on your findings.

Does the Kenmore Series 700 dryer use circuit breakers or a thermal fuse to shutoff the heating element?


All Kenmore Electric Dryers use a thermal cut-off or thermal cut-out, hi-limit thermostat, and a cycling thermostat apart from the motor centrifugal switch as parts of the heating circuit. The thermal cut-off/thermal cut-out and the hi-limit thermostat are located on the heater duct/element duct while the cycling thermostat is located on the blower housing.

The thermal cut-off/cut-out serves as a safety measure and blows open should the dryer overheats or should the hi-limit thermostat fails to cut off power to the heating element. Check the continuity of the thermal cut-off/cut-out and if open, replace it including the hi-limit thermostat.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400


The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.

Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

Dryer goes on and spins but no heat. I've opened up the back but what now? Is there a specific part that if blown would cut off the heat? Model is a small one - probably cost about $300 - don't know the...


The thermal cut-off at the top of the heater duct/housing blows when the high-limit thermostat below it fails to cycle the heating element on and off properly to regulate the heater temperature. This thermal cut-off along with high-limit thermostat including the cycling thermostat on the blower housing are wired in series with the heating element and power to it is cut when the thermal cut-off blows as a safety feature to prevent fire. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

No a kenmore 80 series dryer will not heat . if the heating elment is good & fuse is good what else could be the problem


The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The problem is very likely in the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat located on the blower housing. The thermal cut-off blows when the high-limit thermostat fails and cuts power to the heating element. Both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat need to be replaced if the former is blown open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this kind of problem.

My dryer is not heating up, I did replace fuse but sstill no heat


The thermal fuse is not a part of the heating circuit which is composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components.

Roper electric dryer will not heat after replacing heating element and thermal fuse. what's wrong.


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when the dryer stops heating and the thermal fuse is not part of the heating circuit, it is part of the motor circuit. The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck
