We have an older dryer (ultimate care - super plus capacity) 12+ years old. It no longer "heats". Drum is still turning. I am assuming it is a thermostat - how much do those cost to repair?...


When it doesn't heat it could range from the timer to the heat element to the thermostat or even the motor so it could be as little as $125-350 to repair.

Whirlpool duet dryer circa 2001....does it have a greater life span than this or should I just buy a new one and save a repair bill....again, works fine, but wont heat... clearned exhaust vent...don't have...


In my opinion, I wouldn't put much into repairing a ten year old dryer. I agree with you, and even finding out what is wrong, might cost more than it is worth.

I have a kenmore elite, model# 11062952100. Everything works fine but there is no heat on any cycle. it is about 5 years old. Whats wrong, cost to fix, is it worth fixing


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.

8 year old Malber non-vented washer/dryer


It depends on the machine and if it's in good shape a new set is going to cost you $1200.00 a pump about $100.00 plus labor Its really up to you if you can afford a new unit or not. You may want to ask the repairman if he thinks the machine is good enough to keep, If there is any hoses or belts since he has it a part it will save some labor and would be some preventive maintenance may lube rollers or anything else he might see. But the guy working on it would be able to see if there s any metal wear or wear on rollers and could give you a better answer than we could.see may see something that may be make it not worth it. hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

The control panel on my stackable washer and dryer got fried during a power surge. While the stackable is 8 years old, it still looks new and runs fine normally and has not been over used. The tech...


at 8 years old I think you got your money's worth out of it. (no offence) but if this is for a rental property and you are not close to repair any issues that may come up you have to ask yourself is it worth repairing a item that has and avg 10 years or less life span at 1/3 its cost to buy a new one. If you are not happy with the price of the newer units buy one from the loaner section of a home store or a scratch and dent unit then get the extended service contract with the money you save and you wont have to deal with this issue for 5yrs or more and should one come up you can have some one else deal with it.

Whirpool electric dryer: heat turns on but no rotation


Your problem could be as simple as a broken drive belt.. or an overtemp switch.... If you've never replaced the drive belt.. then that is in all probability your problem.. If you reach inside the dryer drum and try to rotate it.. does it offer any resistance like it is turning a motor pulley system or is it free to rotate with very little resistance ( would suggest the belt broke).. If the cost to repair exceeds the cost to replace then you'd be better off replacing.. However ..if it is just a drive belt.. then I would just replace that.. Hope that helps...
