Turn the power off,, remove the back of the dryer usually screws all around.... Check your heating element for breaks or damages,, check your thermostats there should be 3,, check your thermal fuse .

no heat on a electric whirlpool dryer is either an element, fuse, or thermosat. U can check all these with a metere for continuity. put one lead on each connection if it reads sometin it is okay if it reads nothin than it is defective and u should replace it....

if u like you can go to sears.com go to parts and service far right upper corner usually, go to parts,, then u should be in parts dirrect enter your model number usually on inside on sticker when open door this way u can get a parts breakdown and get part numbers and prices on potential parts hope this helps let me know how it goes bro good luck

SOURCE: whirlpool electric dryer will not heat

check the thermal limit on the side of the heater housing and the blower thermal on the blower housing
the emement limit is at the top of the blower housing and will have 2 red wires going to it
the blower limit will have blue wires going to it
withe the power cord unpluged, remove the wires to these two limits and with a meter on rx 1 ect. read across each of these if you do not get a meter fluctuation , all the way to the right as you check the part os bad

There are a couple of part numbers you will need. If you will go to www.appliancepartspro.com and enter your model number. You will be able to see every part in your dryer. Now for whats wrong with it. This is a very common problem that I see at least 2 times during my business day. The parts you will need to check are as follows. Look at these parts on the diagram so that you can see where they are located inside your dryer

  • #7 AP3132867 Thermal Fuse
  • #9 Part #AP3094244 309 degree cut off plus a 250 degre high limit thermostat.
  • #15 Part #AP3131941 High Limit thermostat only.
Here is how to check these parts to see if they are good or bad:
#7 Thermal fuse/ Check to see if there is continuity between the two terminals on the part. If not, this part is bad. Replace. If it's good, check #9 the same way. Part # 9 comes with a part #15 also because if the part #9 is bad, it's because #15 had gone bad in the past and the dryer had been cycling off of #9 until it went out. Cutting the dryer heat off. One of the two parts #7 or #9 is bad. I hope this makes since to you. If your not able to test these parts, you can replace both and it will fix your dryer. Notice the prices are next to the part # on the web site. you can also order the parts from there, this is the best prices I have found. If I can help any more, just respond back. Good luck
Please rate solution.

SOURCE: the dryer works but there is no heat

If the breakers are okay and you have power to the dryer the problem would be one of two issues.

The first and most likely is the thermal cut off. This is a small temperature activated fuse that will trip if the air flow through the heater is poor, this is usually due to a plugged lint filter or restricted vent pipe between the dryer and outside.

The second is the heat element itself has gone bad. You can measure it with an ohmmeter or physically inspect it for breaks. The image I have attached shows both. The T cut off is part 47 and the element is part 14 both visible with the lower panel taken off. The lower panel has 2 screws visible while laying on the floor looking straight at the panel.

The part numbers for the components are 279973 (cut off kit) and 3387747 (heater)

Whirlpool duet dryer will not heat.


Check your circuit breaker at the electrical panel first. It is usually 220v with two separate breakers. If one of the breakers is tripped, then it will not heat.

I have a whirlpool electric dryer.. when I turn it on its been having a problem with staying on or not heating at all. It will spin and stay on but no heat.we have changed the element and it seemed fi


Sounds like a tripped circuit breaker in the power panel for the house. The breaker for the dryer is actually 2 breakers connected together so if one trips so will the other. Sometimes this does not happen and only one breaker trips. This condition removes power to the heating element but still supplies power to the rest of the dryer. Check to see if the breaker will reset by turning off and back on several times. Then check the power receptacle that the dryer plugs into with a voltmeter set to read 240 volts AC. If no 240 but 115 is present then replace the circuit breaker.

Check the breakers, by FULLY turning it off and then back on. What happens, commonly, is the heat side of the 220 breaker trips. If it keeps happening, sometimes you need a new breaker, but DO NOT increase the amp rating of the breaker. Breakers that trip from time to time, eventually start tripping EARLIER.

Whirlpool electric dryer not running.


Hi,
Check the blown fuses and home's circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Thanks...!!

Barrel of dryer turns but no heat


Your heating element needs to be replaced, or the 240 breaker in your breaker box has tripped. I was a maytag technician for several years...So, check your breaker box for any tripped breakers or the heating element in the dryer needs to be replaced, or the t.stat for the element has blown.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II dryer does not heat up, however it does tumble. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

THERE IS NO HEAT IN MY WHIRLPOOL DRYER MODEL LEQ9030PQ0


Check the dryer twin breakers in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If breakers hold, then try the dryer again. If it heats, you are good to go. If it trips the breakers again, there is a direct short in the dryer itself, usually in the heating element(s). The drum must be removed to access the element(s).
