My Whirlpool gas dryer is not working


Instructions

1
Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing.
2
Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.

3
Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly.
4
Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable.
5
Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues.
6
Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position.
7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet.
8
inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp

Rattles when drying


I need more details but typically a dryer will make a rhythmic rattling noise when loose change and other small metallic objects as well as buttons become trapped in the tumbler impellers (those wing shaped things in dryers).
Loosen and remove the top of your dryer.
Rotate your drum, taking care not to rotate it the wrong way. The right direction of rotation will produce friction to the belt, the wrong direction will cause slack on the belt on one side or the other of the drum.
Rotate the drum until the back side of the impeller is directly on top with the outer screws facing you at the top of the dryer. Remove the screws and pull out the impeller and you will find your noise makers. Do this with the remaining impellers and reinstall.

When turned on, the drum makes a grinding noise as


The main bearing may be worn out at the back of the drum allowing the drum to wobble.Reach inside the drum and lift upward. If you can move it up and down this is probably the problem.

DRUM IS NOT ROTATING, BLOWER IS WORKING AND IS PRODUCING HEAT could i have blown a belt?


Try this first:
Unplug the dryer, reach inside and try to rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn, sometimes motors get dead zones in them and this will rotate it out of the zone if that is your problem.
If that did not work then chances are that you have a broken belt.
If you have a front loading machine:
If you remove the front of the dryer, it will expose the drum and the belt, if you remove the drum it will expose the drum rollers, motor, and idler pulley.
I hope this helps

Gas Dryer won't produce heat


Hi, thanks for the inquiry.

It's most likely a thermal fuse. Basically, the voltage has to go through the fuse before it goes to the ignitor.
It should only cost you about $90 to repair if a technician comes out to fix a fuse.
I wouldn't try to repair it unless you have some knowledge of electrics. If your dryer is less than 12 years old, I would recommend you fix it. Hope this helps.

Best of luck :)

NOISE DRUM ROTATES


there are 2 screws holding the loewr panel on the unut, you can remove the panel and watch it operate to pinpoin the"noise" most likely cause is a roller on rear wall, or perhaps a faulty front set of glides( the drum sits onthem)
