WHIRLPOOL DRYER WONT HEAT


1st thing is to reset the house breaker for the dryer, it is a 220 volt breaker, the dryer only needs 110 volts to run but needs 220 to heat, so the breaker can be partially tripped which will only allow for it to run but not heat. If that is good make sure where the cord attaches to dryer terminal block isn't burnt up, you can lose 220 there as well. If you have 220 to the dryer then you either have a bad element or thermal cutout located on the element with the hi limit thermostat, those parts can be tested for continuity out of operating condition

Not reaching max heat


follow this test and fix it. Merry Christmas.
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Won't heat


Hi,

Visually verify household fuse blown or a circuit breaker tripped.
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
If the problem continues, call an electrician.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Dryer drum turns but no heat is produced.


If this is an electric dryer, unplug, remove the back, and remove the heating element. Check for continuity. There is also a fuse, and a thermo fuse that need to be checked for continuity. If any is bad, replace (get parts from local appliance parts shop). If all is well with the parts, check to see that your 220 is OK. Check the breaker box (switch breaker off and then back on) and see if that fixes the problem. Some electric dryers motors can run but not have the correct electrical leg to run the heating element.
Good luck

Whirlpool dryer not heating up


first you need to check your breakers or fuses in your home's breaker box, try turning the breakers off then back on again (if you have fuses ,check them or replace them). If everything is ok there then you need to access the heating element(with the power off) test to see if you have continuity in the element then the high limit& the thermal cut-off. Sometimes dryers seem like they are not heating when the dryer vent is kinked or clogged. This is the number one thing that I find when servicing dryers. Usually when the vent is clogged or kinked I correct that problem first, then continue with the other things . you can quickly check that by unhooking the vent and run a partial load just to see if that works. while the vent is unhooked you can start the dryer and feel the air coming out of the vent of the dryer to see if you are getting heat. You can check that without having clothes in it. let me know. Thanks

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).
