There is a chance the belt has slipped of or is broken. you may also need to check the thermal fuses in the cabinet

Would a faulty switch interlock stop a dryer from heating?


no. It would stop it from spinning. Now if the dryer isn't spinning then obviously it wouldn't be heating, but if its spinning with no heat the interlock switch is not your problem.

Electric dryer heats up and blows air but doesnt dry my clothes


I would check to see that the lint/filter isn't completely clogged up. This could make the dryer warm without allowing it to do its job of drying the clothes.
Also, is the drum spinning? If not, it could be indicative of other problems.

Washer is not agitating in whites and slowly in colors. What and how do we troubleshoot?


1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped

2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-

If the washer starts spinning, then we know the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.

If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.

3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.

4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.

Will not spin


The final cycle of any washing machine, including Whirlpool units, is the spin cycle. During this cycle, water is sucked out of the load, preparing the clothes for the dryer. If your spin cycle isn't working properly, your clothes will be extremely wet, which increases the length of the drying process. Troubleshoot, and repair this problem yourself to save money

Whirlpool LER5636PQ1 DRYER starts when I hold the button then shuts off


Your motor has gone bad. Think of the motor as a starter in a car. When you turn the key (press the start button) power is applied to the starter, to be specific, the stator also called the start winding, same as the dryer. Then the rotor takes over and the stator drops off. With your machine the rotor isn't engaging and the stator is taking the load and shutting down.

My mdg308daww spins, the heat igniter, glows for about 5-10 seconds and then stops after about a minute it glows again. The igniter was tested ok, and the coils were replaced still the same problem....


Assuming the gas supply valve is turned on, I would make sure the gas valve orifice in your dryer isn't plugged up. If its not that leaves your gas valve not letting the gas in. Very rare though.

Dryer will heat for a few minutes ,then stop heating. it continues to spin.


It sounds like you have an exhaust problem. Check to see if you can feel the air blowing through the exhaust outside your home. If this isn't possible disconnect the vent from the wall and clamp a sock onto the exhaust of the machine. If it works properly you need the replace/clean the exhaust vent.

My kenmore 87872800 dryer wont spin. everything else is working but drum wont spin.


Left the top of the dryer top, check to see if the belt isn't broke or loose, if that is in tact try turning the drum by hand to see if it turns easily. if not, the bearing in the back of the drum needs replaced. this is easy to replace, remove the drum by removing the dryer top and then remove the belt, and the drum slides up out of the machine. replace the bearing then reassemble dryer.
