Question about Whirlpool Dryers
First,verify you have 220 volts AC to the terminal block on the back of the dryer.
If 220 volts is not present,repair the incoming voltage circuit.
If 220 volts is present,
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the rear panel.
On the bottom left of the main exhaust duct there is a thermal fuse about 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and white in color.
Remove the 2 wires from this fuse and jump them together.
Make sure the metal terminals can not touch anything.
Resume power and start the dryer.
If it works, REPLACE the thermal fuse.
It is not re-settable.
If you have an electric meter and know how to use it,you can set the meter for ohms or continuity and remove the wires from the fuse,touch the meter leads to the 2 fuse terminals.
No reading is a bad fuse.
If the thermal fuse is good,check the door switch for continuity.
No continuity is a bad door switch.
