Question about Dryers

1 Answer

The Whirlpool Ultimate II dryer heats up at first and then the heat shuts off after approximately 10 minutes and doesn't come back on. If I let dryer cool for 10 minutes it will do the same thing again.

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

Electric Dryer---

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.


Hope this helps...

Sounds like the knob is not on correctly, or is not the correct knob, or the plate with the numbers on it has moved. When it turns off naturally, does that line up with 'off'?

My whirlpool ultracare !! dryer will not heat. I have to dry things over and oer and over til they finally dry.


i looked up your model number and that's to a washer not a dryer.if it's a gas dryer it sounds like you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve.the coils work until they heat up like in the first 15 to 30 minutes and they shut down,when they cool they work again until they heat up and fail,this is why you have to keep running thedryer,one more problem could be the dryer needs to be cleaned out.clean out the vent line,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the cabinet where the motor is

Heat cycle stops/


Problem is your gas solenoid coils. When they get worn they will open til they get out then shut. They will need to be replaced.

Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II: No heat


didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.7152136.jpg
