Whirlpool electric dryer - looks like a WED5200T but no model number on the unit. The drum turns and air blows from the vent, but the timer has stopped working and there is no heat.


you have a white strip on the back of your dryer un plug your dryer first.....then un plug the strip and hook the two wires together that will allow the heat to start again.....the timer shouldnt have anything to do with the heat....turn it on and put your ear to the knob and you should here a clock sound if not your timer is bad

A load was running and then my dryer just turned


SOUNDS LIKE YOU BLEW A FUSE IN YOUR DRYER. THAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOU HAVE A VENTALATION PROBLEM. THE FUSE SHOULD BE BEHIND THE BACK COVER-AT THE BOTTOM--TWO WIRES PLUG INTO IT AND IT IS PROBABLY WHITE.

Front loader whirlpool dryer (04') 3-prong cord; 4-prong outlet..


You'll need to get a new 4 prong cable. Connect wires as color coded now and connect the green to the frame.

Whirlpool front loader dryerdoo


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a thermal fuse and or gas valve coils, and maybe an igniter all three are very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Now, if this don't solve the problem you will need a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new, if it doesn't then you will need to check the igniter. The igniter is attached to the end of the burner assymbly by one screw and a simple two wire plug. Inspect for breakage, and replace if needed. Happy to help, Tim.

Dryer blowing & rolling but no heat


There should be a little white plug on the front of the dryer. (lower left) Take that out and start the dryer. IF your ignitor is working you will be able to see it turn red through the whole. If you dont change the ignitor. then it will light the burner.

Whirlpool gas Dryer LGR5636JQ1


theres a thermal fuse located on back panel usually white maybe 2 inches tall 1/2 wide 2 blue wires leading to it. ck for continuity, if none replace that(most common problem)... if good you can go back to the ignitor and unplug the white connector it plugs into. place your meter leads into the connector and turn on dryer, you should get 110v. if you do you have a bad ignitor, if not a thermo's gone bad (check the thermal fuse first though.

Derf, E1 means an open thermistor. If this is a front loader, remove the lower panel by removing the 3 screws on the bottom panel. The thermistor will be sitting right behind the blower housing next to a white thermal fuse. The thermistor is the black one. If this is a standard model the lower panel should open by sliding a puddy knife on the two clips and pulling foward. The thermistor is in the same place as a front loader. Your part number should be 3976615. An easy job. Don't forget to kill the power to the unit when repairing...Good luck.
