Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Simpson Duet dryer, maybe 25 years old. The dryer works, but only on low heat. On the high heat setting, there is no heat. There is only one element, so what do you think might be the problem?

Whirlpool Duet Steam is not heating to dry any clothes


Don't have your model so I couldn't bring up the schematic some will run with an open thermal fuse I suspect thermal fuse which is non resettable I've only run across a bad thermistor once based on the age check the exhaust exiting the house and at the dryer this a safety fuse designed to open due to excessive heat if the dryer cannot breath restricted exhaust.

Two problems with Whirlpool Dryer


I would suspect the heating element. I bet you are asking why this clown is saying that when you already told him that on high heat it worked fine. SIMPLE! Your heating element is made up of five coils. For low heat your dryer uses two heating elements and for high all five. So if one or two of the heating elements are open and they happen to be the low temp dry setting ones, that would explain it. That model doesn't have the dryness sensor on it (according to my documentation) so the heating element is the most likely cause.
Hope this helps!

I have a 4 year old duet dryer that does not heat. Is it difficult to get/replace the heating element?


If its only 4 years old you probably have a bad thermal protector, Take the bottom front cover off and check with a meter to see if any are open. They cost about 35$. Otherwise look for a local guy to do the job for 150$

My whirlpool imperial model number LER8858eq1 has stopped heating. this first happened when the dryer was set to high, and now the dryer will not heat on medium as well. The dryer is 11 years old. Any...


FIX IT!!!!

I believe it is your theremostat, maybe the heating element,
I would use a multimeter if you have one and set it on ohms touch it to the terminals of the thermostat, and the heating element (if you don't have a multimeter walmart sells a cheap one that will work fine for what you are doing) if you do not get a reading replace, http://www.appliancepartsworldwide.com/Store_Part.aspx?Id=493992

Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes


there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace
