This is definitely an older dryer. If the power supply is okay and the dryer does not start, the most likely problem is a bad power fuse part number 3392519. Other problems are possible but this is the most likely one. It's located in the back of the dryer behind the large rear panel. It's white and about 1&1/2" inches long. Always unplug your dryer before servicing.

My whirlpool dryer comes on and runs good but it wont get hot can you tell me whats the problem


Hello there and welcome to fixya there are several things that could make this dryer not heat up
Here are the most common things

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn\'t heat, but the drum
turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer
from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is
blown, it will have to be replaced.




Enter your model number to see parts for your dryer.

Help me find my model number


Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric
solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner
assembly. If the dryer doesn\'t heat one or more of the solenoids may be
defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame
doesn\'t light, replace these coils as a set.


Dryer Igniter


If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the igniter might
be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer
igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.


Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can
burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element should be
checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must
be replaced if defective.


Heating Element Assembly

the heating element assembly on an electric
dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element
assembly should be checked for continuity. The heating element assembly
cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor



Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the
heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the flame sensor
might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not
as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.


High Limit Thermostat


Although not common, if the dryer doesn\'t
heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for
continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn\'t heat.


Cycling Thermostat




The cycling thermostat regulates the
temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer doesn\'t heat it may be
caused by a defective cycling thermostat. This is not common.


Main Control Board

The main control board is normally not at
fault when the dryer doesn\'t heat. Check all of the other components in
this troubleshooting guide before replacing the main control board. The
main control board cannot be tested easily and must be replaced if it is
defective.


Timer
The timer is normally not at fault if the
dryer doesn\'t heat. In many situations where timers are replaced they
end up being returned. Check all of the more common components in this
troubleshooting guide before replacing the timer

Make sure both sides of the receptacle has 110 volts. Take meter and keep prong in ground slot and then put red prong in the others. You should have 110 volts in each one. If not change receptacle.

Hi , i have a Kenmore dryer special edition model # 110-8866291 stop working after i open the door while it running , did i blow the fuse ? please help .


its supposed to stop when you open the door,, close the door and try starting it up again, if it doesn't, its going to be one of 2 things,, the thermal fuse blew, they are located in the back of the machine or the door safety switch went out, you can check that by by passing it,, just jumper the 2 wires to it together and hit start , if you have no power at all to the machine, I'd check the thermal fuse first

May be a broken belt or thermal fuse.
Some dryers have a switch that will prevent the dryer motor from running when the belt that turns the drum breaks. Others have a thermal fuse that does the same thing if the dryer should overheat due to a blockage in the venting. There are other causes for this issue, but these two are the most common.

Post your brand and model number so we can tell which style you have.

The dryer wont show any sign of power. The plug works fine


Hi,


Press and hold start button for 4-5 seconds.Make sure that the start button has been fully pushed down or turned far enough to activate the dryer.

After that plug something else into the same outlet. If it works, you know you have power to the dryer. If it doesn’t work, you’ll need to check for any blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers.


If the power is there, you need to check door switch, thermal fuse, thermostats, and start switch to see if one of these is faulty.
Make sure that the control settings are appropriate, and that any buttons are fully depressed.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
