My Whirlpool LEB6300PWO will randomly not start, or will start but only run briefly then stop. I know these types of problems are not usually related to the timer, but we have found that by either lightly...

My whirlpool dryer stopped heating


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Whirlpool LGR4634JQ2 no heat, tumbler spins, timer works


The control sends power over to the heat assemblyd28ae89.jpg742f281.jpgec7e68b.jpg1a010b4.jpgIf the ignitor is good and the flame sensor is good. The thermal limit is good AND the dryer works a little and quits then replace the solenoids. They get hot and fail with age. More here

Whirlpool Dryer not heating


The motor has to be running for voltage to exit the motor going to the heater. With the back off the dryer and the motor running you should read 220 volts at the heater if all safetys and thermostats are good.
There is a thermal cut out relay on the heat canister. It must read continuity also.
Remember you must remove at least one wire from each component being tested to get a true open or closed reading. If a wire is left connected you get a false reading.
The heating element could be broken and part of the heater wire touching the canister. This would cause a continuity reading and still no heat.
Finally, yes,the centrifugal switch in the motor could be bad and not sending power to the heater on the red wire.

Tumbler spins, heat won't go on, timer won't work


It is your operating thermostat. It controls the heat and runs the timer down.

Dryer not heating up


If the timer knob does not turn in a clockwise direction, then chances are the timer is bad.

Heating is a different issue, although, if the timer knob will not turn, then it may not be at a position that turns the heat on.

Replace the timer, then check the heating. If the heater then works, then the problem was in the timer. If it doesn't, then we need to look at problems within the heater circuit.

Reply back what you find out.

Dryer stopping in middle of cycle but timer continues to run.


oK " It's your timer, it has to be replaced

it's not going threw all it cycles, will start but will not finish

not a big job, unscrew plate on back at the top you will see
timer , take it out and replace it

( can not stress enough that you have to unplug the electrical cord from the wall socket before working on a dryer or any appliance )
