Question about Whirlpool Dryers

Open Question

My Whirlpool AWZ3513 tumble dryer is not drying. After only a couple of minutes it believes the filter needs attention. I remove the filter but there is no fluff. I try again but within a minute it lights up the filter light again. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Bosch Maxx 6 doesn't dry anymore?

Yes,it is the first thing to check ,If you can somehow see if its glowing when you start the dryer.It may also be a thermal fuse.

SOURCE: ELECTRIC DRYER WON'T TUMBLE

Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.

SOURCE: Dryer won't shut off at end of cycle

First of all if you want heat it's probably a burnt up thermal fuse due to lack of air to the dryer. But if the timer is getting stuck you'll just have to replace the timer. Theres no way of fixing the timer just replace it and then replace the thermal fuse (it's located on the back of the dryer) and you should be up and running also have the ducting cleaned out.

Please remember to unplug the dryer before working on it.

Hope this helps

My Whirlpool dryer tumbles but no heat. The clothes dry after along period of time and that is when i finally feel some heat.


Probably needs a good cleaning. If it was me I would remove the filter housing and do a through cleanup. make sure the vent going outside is not blocked. The dryer must have adequate airflow to work well.

My dryer will shut off ten minutes into the any drying cycle and then won't let me turn it back on for another 10 minutes.


first clean filter, element could be putting out to much heat, and safty swich shuts it down, or it coud be a bad thermocouple, , lets hope its not the timer, if it does this on cool tumble, its ur timer, (dial switch)

Whirlpool WED5300VW0 dryer--gets hot, tumbles,


This definitely appears to be an air flow problem. Take off the vent and see if it is blowing any air. If air, lots of it, comes out the dryer, the vent is clogged and needs cleared out. If no, or very little air blows out the dryer, the blower wheel could be broken, or there is a serious clog. Check the lint filter and look inside where it goes for anything that might be restricting the air.

Whirlpool AWZ 7303 tumbling but not drying.


blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

Dryer blowing cold air whirlpool awz3513


Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I AM A COMPLETE NOVICE---- I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL DRYER THAT TUMBLES AND I BELIEVE IT HAS AN AN EXHAUST BUT THE HEATER ISN'T HEATING UP TO DRY THE CLOTHES NOW THE HEATING ELEMENT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT SHOULD BE...


There are some thermal fuses located near the heating element, on the outside of the heating element housing, or some of them have the fuses on the blower housing. Check the element by ohming it out with a meter, if open, replace element. The dryer needs to have an un-obstructed air exhaust shorter then 15 feet from the dryer to vent properly when drying clothes.

I have a whirlpool dryer that will tumble but makes a noise


sounds as if perhaps something has fallen down the vent hole atop the dryer, it leads directly to the fan so its quite possibel to be making that noise, if you remove teh back of unit yo can locate the "channel " that the filter goes down and by removing a few screws yo can remove the channel to check for obstruction, the 2 screws undethe filter on top need to be removed as well. good luck!
