    you need to have the thermal swith replace one of the causes is if the air duck or vent is restricted or block.

    Whirlpool GGW9868KQ3, Sensing light goes on when start is pressed and nothing happens. Timer counts down but no heat and the drum does not spin. I replaced the control board and that did not fix the problem, the same technician who told me the board was bad also said the belt switch was not working, so I have little faith this will fix it either. I wish the technician would have just told me he did not know as opposed to lying to me. A & E in San Diego, don't call them, they will take the service call money and tell you to buy a new appliance...

The thermal fuse is the most common problem that can cause this. If you remove your bottom panel (2 1/4 inch screws) and then your lint duct (the area where your lint screen sits) you will see a white peice of plastic with 2 blue wires going to it behind the lint duct. That is your thermal fuse. A continuity meter can quickly be used to check to see if it is bad. If it is bad, replace it and re-install your lint duct then run you dryer on air dry (if you run it with heat, you could burn your replacment fuse out). Then go to the vent on the outside of your house. You should be able to feel a good deal of air pressure on your hand. If not, check the hose behind your dryer for kinks or being crushed (not uncommon even on "professional" instalations. If that is ok, you will need a cleaning for the house part of your vent.

2009 Kenmore Dryer. Wondering why it seems to only work on 1 drying cycle? Everytime I try to put it on another cycle all the lights flash and beep...and nothing...

sounds like the washer might not be spinning the water out of the clothes good enough . 1 60 minute cycle should dry them more than dry enough .

I changed the power from a 3 prong power cord to a 4 prong power cord I put the green and red wire on the same terminal and screwed it in and plugged it in, I never grounded the green. Now I get nothing...

You blew a fuse or tripped a breaker. Red goes to one outside terminal, black to the other, and white to the center. Green goes to the frame for a ground. Re-wire correctly and re-set breaker and you should be fine.

Lg dlg2522w check filter flashing, motor spins,no

Did you put a load of wet clothes in the dryer and run it?
You can't change the setting while it's running.
The sensors won't let it heat up if there is nothing in the dryer.
This is not your grandmas dryer, this is a high tech machine.
There is probably nothing wrong with it.
Oh and the filter light flashes like that, it is supposed to, it is telling you to check the filter for lint.

How to replace electrical cord on washer. through divorce he cut cord off about 1 inch from back. got new one but not sure to remove back plate to get to wiring. how to replace cord on dryer. he cut...

On the dryer. You correct. If you have a three wire cord, the one in the center of the cord goes in the center of the electrical block. It does not matter about the two on the outside. Just put one on one side and the other on the other. The washer will also have three wires. One black, one white and one green. First, the green goes to the case or ground. The black goes on the gold screw and the white goes on the silver screw. The black and white can go on either but most people connect them as I stated. Sorry about your divorce and good luck on wiring your machines. Have a great day.
