The F45 has been attributed to many problems. (current draw, faulty blower motor, etc) The most common fixes are typically checking for good airflow (is your vent smashed, bent or other wise restricted behind the dryer?) By running the dryer, you should be able to feel air pressure on your hand where the unit vents out. If this checks ok, I would check with Whirlpool. I have been told they have a known software problem that htey have been replacing one of the circuit boards in the console. While your unit may not still be under manufactures warranty, they will usually cover the repair if it is a known problem or it is not long out of warranty.

Whirpool dryer 6 year old heat only few minutes and then burner turn off by itself but dryer keep runing without heat. this is a gas dryer. can u help me which part i need to change? thanks


This is most likely to be the 2 coils on the gas valve. When the coils weaken over a period of time they tend to allow the gas come on for a few moments and then the gas valve shut ending the flame.
The part number is 5303931775 and by clicking the part number it will take you to where you can find the set.
Let me know if I can help if you run into more problems and I will help get your dryer going, Thanks Sea Breeze

Dryer still wont heat


you could remove and bench test the theromostat. my kenmore would not complete the circut to heat at all with a faulty thermostat. Just use a jumper wire to bypass it and test it THERE WILL BE NO SHUT OFF COULD HEAT UP TOO MUCH IF LEFT RUNNING.

Kenmore oasis electric dryer beeps and displays code F45


We had this error on our machine for about a year before we finally got sick and tired of it. Our dryer was purchased in 2006.

Here is the solution: the code means there is an error on the thermistor. Our thermistor was loose, as were other electrical wires. My husband tightened up all the connections and the thermistor, and we have never had this error again.

However, we will never buy these machines again either, because we have had numerous other errors on the washer and dryer.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
