My dryer heats but takes two cycles to dry clothes.

Check the hose in the back and vent to make sure it is breathing properly first. Most driers have a thermistor moisture sensor. Try replacing it first. It nether of these works your heat strip may be shorted so only heating partially. Most driers have two or three thermostats also. Two on the heater cover. One is the high temp and one is the low temp. Usually the high heat will be the problem (cuts out to early before the heat strip fully heats). Others have a third one on the exhaust blower. Check these at room temprature with an ohm meter. They should have continuity. If not replace. Thermostats that are open with no continuity will usually cause the heater not to heat at all. Thermostats can get old and stop working at their intended temp. Replace one at a time

Maxi dry 456 not heating

not necessarily the ellement is the main cause although most of the time it is the ellement that cause the problem...because of poor terminal contact from the power source.The timer of the drier also when mal function will cause the problem you need to clean the contact of the timer..need to check also whether a termistor and termal fuse is present on the circuit.use a tester to check the continuity of the termal fuse and termistor replace if open..

hope this could help you.Goodluck!
your rate culd help this post tnx..

Dryer does not heat ellement is good

If the dryer won't heat and the heating element is good, then check the thermal fuse and the high limit thermostat. The thermal fuse is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is mounted on the exhaust duct. Test it for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse. '
The high limit thermostat is a small round, black device mounted on a metal plate and attached to the internal ductwork with two screws. It can be tested for continuity. It should have none. If it has continuity it is faulty. I am attaching a photo of the thermal fuse and high limit thermostat for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Noisy and inconsistent cooling

It could be that there is a problem with the Thermostat\low voltage switching. Some heat pumps have reversing valves activated for cooling , sometimes for heating. Whoever installed this for you is totally responsible for your unit still. There can be a number of things going wrong, like no filter drier in stalled and sporatically clogging the refrigerant and making a lot of noise. Call the installer back.

Drier shuts off

Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement. The elecment has a contact in

the 'timer'circuit too.

It is possible that your element has

failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint

filter and the exhaust vent tube and all

the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

Heating Element no longer working

Hi Paige
Expect to pay $30 for the kit. it's a 279816 and will take some level of mechanical and technical ability to locate it and affect the repair. This kit addresses 2 issues and should be installed by a certified technician. Your owners manual has a big WARNING!!! block saying what not to do, like Don't use plastic or foil venting. But nobody reads manuals anyway. Most likely you have an aluminum foil colored accordian style vent pipe. That's what caused your thermostats to burn out. Get your drier checked out by a certified tech for safety. Afterwards, keep that vent, clean clean clean and install a sure vent from Whirlpool 4396028. 16,000 homes each year have fires from improperly vented driers according to the U.S. Dept of Consumer Safety.
