It's over-heating it needs to be looked at, thermal fuses, lint buildup

Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2 LEQ8000JQ3 w/ Accudry- how do I make sure the Accudry feature works properly when I replace element?


The orange wire mounted to the 250 limit at the base of the heating element connects to the timer motor. When the element is on the motor cannot move forward in autodry. When the element is off the timer motor slowly advances. that is how it works. If you small limit on top is blown you have a restriction in your venting system or a clogged filter chute or a bad cycling thermostat. I worked on one and did a video recently.

Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

My whirlpool dryer (model LER7646DQO) has been making noises when starting up for about a month. The last load I did I removed dry clothes and put a couple of damp items back in, pushed the start button,...


this could be one of two things the heating element that heats the air has broken or the noise you heard was the bushes on the motor going and then they burnt out.

either the heater elements need replacement or most likely the motor needs new bushes or replacing all toghether.

this will need a qualifed engineer to resolve. considering the age of the machine if it is many years old it might be cheaper to replace the machine for a new one. ask your engineer how much it will cost to repair before he starts the work and decide the best action.

I hope this was helpful.

My Whirlpool dryer has stopped heating-still seems like air flow and tumble is good. Recently replaced computer. Dryer is only 5yrs old.


if your heating element is good then you need to check the thermal fuses in the cabinet if one of those is bad then it needs to be replaced.all thermal fuse should have continuity as well as the element if one of them does not have any continuity then replace it

Our Whirlpool Senseon Dryer stopped heating. It's


I had the same problem. I replaced the thermistor,heating element and another part and still didn't correct problem. i finally had a friend come check it and believe it or not it was the 30 amp fuse in my fuse panel of the house.Come to find out the dryer will run and everything works like it should on 1/2 of the 220 plug but the other half runs the heating element.Both fuses must be good. I replaced the 30 amp round fuse and it works and heats perfect. I hope this helps you and saves you some time and money.

The dryer runs, but there is not ant heat.


hi,
Sounds like your element went. Unplug and take off the back. You will see a grey or silver rectangular box with red wires coming out of the bottom, this is your element box. remove the element box and the wires that go to it. put the box on the counter. the element array comes out of the metal box with a couple more screws on the box. Study the element array for the broken element, you should see it. Call the appliance parts store or take it in to them and I think the element was pretty inexpensive (30.) good luck

Whirlpool dryer the heating element will not shut off. I suspect a thermal fuse but took them in and they said they were okay. I am going to check and see if the element goes to ground on the case as...


There have been many cases in recent months where the heater coil is shorting to the case. In many cases, this issue will only appear when the heater gets hot. If the dryer is getting hot when not running, replace the heater even if it appears good when cooled down. You received good recommendation....

If you need further assistance, let me know
