Hello there:
Here is something for you to start at
make sure you inspect this very carefully
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.
Please keep me posted on how this is going

    Hello there again and thanks for the comment sorry it took so long to get back with you
    Yes i realize that the fuse it is blowing inside of the dishwasher and i understand that the motor is good
    Hve you physically disconnedted the motor and tried to spin it to ensure that it deffinatly turns freely also if the pump has somthng that is restricting it from working properly this will cause this condition
    Furthermore inside of the control panel you may want to check really closly for any burnt wires or moisture this sounds like you are getting a short when it is running and this can be a pain to track down if you have a meter i would disconnect the power to the unit and test all of the major components for continuity to ensure they are all working properly then i would test the wiring harness for continuity and then apply the power to the machine and test for proper volts

LEC8858EQO WONT DRY


Be sure it's not set on air fluff. Check the thermal fuse, the cutout fuse, all thermostats and the heating element . Also make sure heating element isn't grounded to the case.
Did you check around the blower wheel for lint & god knows what else. Could be the centrifical switch on the motor the heater wire goes through it. If you check all these i'm sure you will find the problem. Hope this helps

Put new thermal limiting switch, thermal fuse and heating element in my whirlpool estate elec. dryer. it will not get hot still is there something i,m missing?


their are several possibilities

1) check breaker and or fuse to be supplying 240 volts to the dryer,even though the breaker seems to be on a internal burned out breaker will appear to be set but 240 vac not at dryer

2) check were the cord connects to back of dryer that one on the legs hasnt burnt and only 120 vac to dryer instead or required 240 vac

3)depending on your model i dont know if you have a timer or computer control but it isn't sending power to the element

4) the motor switch could be defective, all dryers are required by law to have a built in safety that assures the dryer will not heat when it isn't running to do that all dryers have a switch built into the motor that will only send power to the element once its running

5) in addation to the high limit t-stat and thermal fuse all dryers (depending on model) have a cycling t-stat or thermistor that controls the normal operating temp (the high limit and thermal fuse only come in to play when a dryer overheats) that could be defective

No a kenmore 80 series dryer will not heat . if the heating elment is good & fuse is good what else could be the problem


The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The problem is very likely in the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat located on the blower housing. The thermal cut-off blows when the high-limit thermostat fails and cuts power to the heating element. Both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat need to be replaced if the former is blown open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this kind of problem.

Troubleshooting Whirlpool and Whirlpool-Made Electric Dryers Running But Not Heating

My dryer is no longer heating up and it does not time out, what parts would i need to fix the problems?


Q - My electric dryer runs but will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating?
A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug
Whirlpool style dryer - no heat problems:

Electric dryers - See the "how to take apart" section first if needed. Always check the power supply first...if one house fuse blows or 1/2 of the breaker trips, it is possible for the dryer to run with no heat. If you have a volt meter, you should read 240 volts between the red and black wires, 120 volts between the white and black and 120 volts between white and red, check for this at the main power connection. If you have 240 volts to the dryer, remove rear access panel, turn dryer on and test for 240 volts to the *heating element wire connections (#4). If you have 240 volts there and no heat = bad element, the element must be broken physically to be bad. If you have no power at the heating element, remove power, remove wires to the heating element and isolate them so that they can't touch anything. Reinstall power and check each wire for power from the wire to the dryer cabinet, one wire will probably show 120 volts and the other will show zero. Make note of the color or # of the wire that has no power, remove power to the dryer and check the wiring diagram that comes with the dryer to find out where that color or # wire goes to. EG: - wires might be yellow and red, if the yellow wire (example only) was the one that had no power, look at the wiring diagram to find out where that goes to and check only those parts, no need to check the other colored wire parts as they are working. Things to check are, *thermostats, timer contacts, selector switch, motor switch heat contacts ( 1&2 on the motor switch ) and *thermal fuse. If the wires to the heating element are the same color, just remove power after test and slowly follow that wire that has no power with your hand to see what parts it goes to. If live volt testing scares you, try the ohm checkinstead.
*#1-Thermal fuse that controls heat. If the dryer overheats, this fuse will blow. One shot fuse. Does not reset.
#2-Canister for the heater element.
#3-Hi limit thermostat. This thermostat is a safety thermostat in case the dryer severely overheats. When this safety thermostat is defective, it should raise a red flag for air flow problems.
#4-This is the terminals of the heater element that is inside the canister.
#5-Thermal fuse that controls motor run.
#6-Control thermostat. This is the thermostat that controls the cycling of the heater in high heat mode.
#7-Heater for low heat. When you select low heat, 110V is sent to this heater that the control thermostat sits in. The heater helps cycle the control thermostat faster, therefore you get less heat than the high heat mode.
You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Whirlpool duet electric wil not heat


Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

Whirlpool leb6000pq1 not heating


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

restricted.

Dryer wont heat up it just blows cold air...whats the deal???????


Usually what fails in an electric dryer after years of good service that the heating element or elements fail and it often blows a fuse in the dryer when it does this. You need to remove covers and check the heating element with an ohm meter, Sometimes the element is visible and can be seen to be broken. If you can't see the break avoiding handling the element wire as the older it is the more fragile it gets. No point breaking one that isn't already broken. The thermostat that controls the drying temperature can also fail but that is less likely. Heating elements are like light bulbs. They have a fixed life and burn out after a number of hours. Don't forget to replace the fuse if it has one and its blown with the same size fuse.

Blowing heating element


Wow. Doesn't sound normal to me. I have two thoughts going through my head. One is that perhaps the blower fan is bad and not giving it the proper air flow. However the high limit switch should shut off if it gets too hot, which leaves me to believe the thermostat and/ or the high limit switch are bad. Naturally you want to vent the shortest distance possible. Good Luck. I know a good repairman could locate the problem. That's the problem, finding a trustworthy repairman. If you do hold onto him. Good Luck
