It could be the heating element, a safety limit, a control problem, or an electrical problem. A heating coil is used to warm the clothes as they get tossed gently inside the drum. A blower mounted on the motor pulls air through the heating element into the drum and out the exhaust. The element gets old and briitle with use and eventually needs replacement. That is what you check first. On gas dryers vibration and age will cause the igniter to crumble and fail. If it turns out the element is fine then one of the safety's might be blown. These safety's are set to a certain temperature
for the dryer to operate safely. The drum temp control for cotton is 160f. A limit on the heater housing is 250f. If it fails another smaller limit is mounted nearby that blows at 300f. If that temp exceeds 350f a duct fuse mounted on the blower housing opens and kills most dryers. On gas dryers the duct fuse will kill the gas assembly but the dryer will still run. If all of those safetys are good the timer could be the problem. The timer has a terminal on it that runs down to the heating element. If you suspect it is bad you can check it with a meter. That leg of the timer should have continuity with other terminals on the timer at different spots on the timer. Turning the timer and checking for continuity will give a clue. If you cannot get continuity with any other terminal on the timer at any position on the dial then you have a burned contact in the timer. If that turns out to be good, you would need to inspect the electrical outlet for proper power to the machine. On American models the motor runs on 120 volts but the heating element must have 240 volts. If you have more questions just post a comment. Good luck on repairing your machine. I have some repair photos: HERE
Remove and clean the venting to outside then get the rear cover off and check for continuity to the heater element and safetys.

I have a whirlpool unit model number ED22MMXRNRO the lights are on inside but the unit is nor cooling.


Is the fan inside the freezer is blowing air. But not cold air and it is regular air. If so then your compressor is not running or there is a cooling gas leak or line block.

When do you use the cool setting on a blow dryer?


Use cool air when you've finished blow drying your hair or doing anything else to your hair with hot air. When you blow cool air afterwards, it helps keep the style.

WHIRLPOOL model: cem2760tq heating problem


HAVE YOU CHECK THE HEATING ELEMENT? THEREMAL FUSE? USE AN OHM METER, IF YOU DON'T HAVE CONTINUITY, REPLACE IT. CHECK THE FUSE FIRST, IT'S LESS EXPENSIVE

Whirlpool stopped blowing cool air. Unplugged


It sounds as if your defrost timer has failed. Unplugging the unit over night allowed the unit to defrost. If unplugging it overnight or by using a stnd fan blowing into the freezer section for 90 minutes results in the fan blowing cold air then your unit is not defrosting. Most often the defrost timer is the problem. However there could be other defrost circuit like the thermostat or the defrost element. In order to provide you with the correct solution and defrost timer location you should privde your model number for further instructions.

Hi

Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:
- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.
