Im assuming your on the automatic cycle. on this cycle the timer will not advance without heat. check you house circuit breaker/fuse. if one goes the unit will run but will not heat.

Not spinning


A dryer has a lot of parts to make it heat, tumble and blow air. If it quit tumbling there are many things that could be wrong. You could start with checking the thermal fuse or belt switch or door switch, from there your into timers and motors. If you have electrical experience go for it :-) unplug first ;-)

It still heats up and has not tripped the breaker,


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Whirlpool WED5300VW0 dryer--gets hot, tumbles,


This definitely appears to be an air flow problem. Take off the vent and see if it is blowing any air. If air, lots of it, comes out the dryer, the vent is clogged and needs cleared out. If no, or very little air blows out the dryer, the blower wheel could be broken, or there is a serious clog. Check the lint filter and look inside where it goes for anything that might be restricting the air.

Dryer heats, then quits


The thermostat that controls the heat has failed. Try one of the other settings on the timer switch ans see if it will heat, the different cycles use different thermostats.

Roper dryer, timer doesn't time out and not heating up?


Dryer will run forever if it doesnt heat up, Dryer has to heat up and thermostat has to get hot and open to start the timer. Odds are rally great, it is your heating element.
