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.

My whirlpool duet is not drying....it is not getting hot. It appears to be drying but it is not getting hot. I have to run the dryer multiple cycles.


Check for crimp in your vent line, Check your breaker. It is a dual breaker if one side pops it will run with no heat. Check those first.

FIRST YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR BREAKERS MAKE SURE BOTH ARE ON. YOU NEED 110V TO RUN THE MOTOR BUT 220V TO HEAT.IF THAT IS FINE IT MAY BE A SENSOR OR A ELEMENT.

My Kenmore Elite (Whirlpool) HE3 elctric dryer is no


A dryer not heating usually means that either the heating element is burned/broken (open circuit); a thermal fuse in line with the heating element is blown or; a thermostat is faulty.

Dryer needs to be partially disassembled to diagnose with a multimeter.

Whirlpool Imperial Electric Dryer wont heat up


Check the following to address this issue.




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.
