Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Gas dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms you may experience with your dryer.

SOURCE: no heat

Check the glow plug.
Take off the bottom front panel, push the start button and look for a red glow. This glow plug is about the size of your little finger and is hard to see when it's off but you will see a red glow if it's working. No glow, replace the glow plug.

If it glows for a few seconds then goes out then the solenoids on the gas valve should be checked with an OHM meter.

SOURCE: Dryer runs but won't heat

As the clothes gently toss about inside the drum, a temperature control thermostatic disk regulates the heat. It is set for 160f for cotton and it mounts on the blower housing. As air is drawn into the drum and out the backside of the dryer the heat is regulated by this control. It sends 120 volts to the gas assembly. Right next to it is a fuse. The duct fuse is set to blow at 250f. Should that control fail to open and allow for heat to build to abnormally high temps. Note: the fuse will kill the heat source only on most dryer, the dryer will however continue to run. Lint and vent blockage can restrict the airflow and make the heat inside build to dangerous levels.The control thermostat powers up the heat for a minute then shuts down for a few minutes, then repeats this all throughout the drying process, the gas does not stay on! That would burn the clothes. If both of those items check ok and the dryer vent and lint has been cleaned, I next take a look at the gas assembly. I check the flame sensor first. If the flame sensor is open the ignitor will not glow. If that turns out to be good I next check the ignitor itself for continuity. If it turns out to be good I replace the coils. Those coils cannot be checked because they do not act up until energised. Sometimes the coils will work, get hot and fail, cool down and work again. I have some repair photos: HERE

Most likely, it is the thermostat which controls the heating element. The Bios Thermostat will have two wires connected to a round disc which has a flange and screw holes to hold it next to the blower vent or the center of the drum. Use an ohm meter to see if it open or take it to an appliance parts store to have them check it for you. You may also see a thermal fuse and a high temperature cut-off thermostat which should not read open with an ohm meter. Any open thermostat will prevent the heater element from turning on. The part should be about $25.00.

My wirlpool dryer drum spin but not heating at all.the timer count but not heating.


If it heats up for a few minutes at the begging and after that goes cold – make sure it is leveled and get good air flow, replace the coils.
If it doesn’t heat up at all, replace the thermo fuse.

Wirlpool dryer heating eliment keeps braking


Sounds like you use dryer sheets. If you do, try cleaning your lint screen with vinegar. Dryer sheets leave a film on the screen that the dryer eventually can't breathe through, the dryer overheats and burns up the elements.

Appliance rewiring wiring WIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II


The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II cannot be outfitted for a standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Your dryer is a 220 VAC appliance. It needs to have it own dedicated 30 amp, 220 VAC circuit with the proper outlet and power cord installed. The dryer heating circuits and timer will not run on 115 VAC. I think you need to reconsider what you are about to do...
