Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Whirlpool AWZ3518 vented dryer. The dryer will not start. There is a warning light lit that says it's full of fluff. "Remove the fluff" and it'll work. Done that AND vacuumed out the vent area still no good. Any ideas please ? John

Disconnect the vent in the rear and try again.... If it now works you have a blocked exhaust vent....If not, you might have a bad sensor..

    Thank you. Must be the sensor as the machine is totally fluffless.

Thermal fuse in dryer keeps blowing out


Hi Janet Douglas
Check to make sure your vent is clear, this can cause the overheat problem and blow the thermal fuse.
Also check to make sure the blower is not full of lint also as this can cause the same problem you are having happen.
Another thought:
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element and thermal can burn out very quickly.

I have a whirlpool dryer that won't stay running. It starts and runs for awhile and then shuts off. If you wait awhile you can start it again. The model number is WGD6400SW. It's a gas dryer.


It may be overheating. Make sure it is able to vent and that all fluff filters and vents (and any fluff you can see) are cleaned and there are no blockages. If it continues it will need to be serviced/checked.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Maytag neptune dryer will not start


Ok here is what I would do. The first thing I want to do is check the door switch. If that switch is broken the dryer won't go BUT the lights would all be on and the duct fuse intact. If that turned out to be ok, I would remove the ducting60b599d.jpg in the rear and look for excessive lint and fluff in the vent hose and the vent pipe to outside. I would look next at the filter and inside the filter housing for fluff and lint. If I saw something I thought might be causing an air restriction I would then guess the duct fuse was blown. Does that make sense to you? I Would need to unplug the machine and move it to a work bench lift or tailgate. b5d8bb1.jpgIf the top pops i would pop that top Note( if the dryer is a slopehead I would start by removing the door and goalpost front d2679bf.jpgthen pop the top and remove the shroud and drum) I would look2849823.jpg for a loose blower wheel and fluff. I would check the duct fuse

Whirlpool awz3518 'Clean Filter' light is flashing


It would appear that this issue is related to a cold location, or the arctic air coming in through the vent hose.Sort of defeats the purpose of a dryer not working when its cold.

Hi, i have a homebrand dryer. Model: TD50-89S. Without asking first,my son transferred washing to dryer. Unfortunately, there was alot of white fluff all over washing and he assumed the dryer could take...


Your duct work is probably clogged with the fluff, which will not allow the air to flow though like it should. When that happens, the heat builds up on the cabinet and the heat sensor shuts down the heat. Its an easy fix, it this is the case. Just remove the duct from the dryer, clean it out, clean out the fluff from the dryer duct connection, then go outside and inspect the outside dryer vent for clogs. Make sure the flapper is working on the outside vent as well. Good luck!

Fluff escaping from my Creda Simplicity Dryer T522VW


You don't say how much fluff is escaping, but some things to check are -

1) That the lint screen is fully seated into the top of the dryer vent
2) All the way to where it discharges the house, is clean and free of restriction
3) Check that the dryer door gasket and lint screen cover gasket's are in good condition and do not allow air leakage.

Make certain the flex duct leading from the back of the dryer is connected tightly to the dryer and the vent duct, and make sure the flex duct is not split or broken.

WHIRLPOOL DRYER- CLOGGED WITH FLUFF DOWN THE BOTTOM


Try hooking it out with a long piece of fairly strong wire with a hook on the end.
It won't stop the dryer from working, but if it is vented , remove and clean the vent hose by running water through it, this will remove all traces of fluff, and make sure the outside is clear if it goes through a wall.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have a whirlpool dryer model #len 2000pgo and my wash doesnt get dry but dryer gets warm ...not hot like it should. what could be wrong??? its electric


Your venting plays a huge part here.Do you want to be 100% sure about the vent ,ok,for just ONE load remove the vent hose from the dryer keep atleast 3 feet clear for the air to exit dryer.Now select TIMED dry cycle for 60 minutes.Start dryer and make sure your in a heat setting (not air fluff).The normal load should dry in 60 min,If it does than you now you have a block in the venting.
