I can understand how important it is to have your dryer working properly. However, without the model number, I can only provide some general information on the issue. There are several components that can cause a dryer to stop heating. These depend on the source of power that the dryer uses. If the dryer is electric the problem could be caused by a failed thermal fuse, hi limit thermostat, control thermostat, thermal cut-off, or heating element. This could also be cause by a blown household breaker (there are two for this type of dryer, and one can blow or pop without the other one), or a failed timer. Some of these will also cause a gas dryer to stop heating, such as the thermostats, the thermal fuse and the thermal cut-off depending on your model. However, there is also the ignitor, the burner, the safety valve, or the coils that can cause it as well. In order to determine which part is causing the problem you will need to test the different components. If you could reply with your model number and any additional details about this, I can then provide a more detailed answer.

My GEQ9800 dryer will not start. Start relay switch is good, timer is good, thermal fuse is good, door switch is good, input power is good. Nothing happens when you hit the start switch.


Is it plugged in. Seriously,
what about the heating element, have you tested it?
here is a link to replace it if it's bad

There is no heat on any setting


If you have a power meter and can check the continutiy of the heating element and the thermal fuses that is what you need to do.
Unplug the unit and then remove the back panel remove the wires to the heating element and check for continuity if it has continuity then reattach the wires then look up higher on the side of the can and you should see a high limit thermal fuse remove those wires and test it if it fails replace it.

If you don not have a meter then you might have to remove the element and visually look at it.
as far as the high limit thermal fuse with the wires disconnected you may be able jump them together and plug the unit back in and it should get hot.

this should help solve your problem.Good luck and Happy New Year.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II dryer does not heat up, however it does tumble. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

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.

Whirlpool electric dryer that will not heat up, dryer comes on and turns, but no heat


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Whirlpool Dryer not heating


There is many different things it could be! most of the time it is not the heating element. You have thermal fuses and safety switches. I bet you 10 to 1 if you locate the thermal fuse on the element cannon say 1 foot up from the incoming voltage from the wires to the heating element.

1. either disconnect power to the unit, take continuity on every fuse try the one i suggested first.
2. the same exact fuse im talking about disconnect power and connect both wires together, dont ground it out, plug power back in and then try it.

Note this is only advice and Whirlpool Parts Surplus is not responsible. Try that give us a call or hit that link and find your thermal fuse part number.

First make sure you have power to the unit through the plug. If power is present, then you most likely have an open Thermal Safety Fuse. The Thermal is a Safety feature that shuts off the power to the Heat Element in the event the Blower is not blowing or the Lint Vent becomes clogged not allowing air to flow over the Heat Element. NO air flow, Heat Element over heats, Thermal Safety Fuse opens, power shuts off. If the Thermal Safety Fuse is open find out why. Was the blower not working? Was the Lint Filter clogged? ( Lint Filter should be cleaned after each use to assure continued air flow.) Was Lint Vent Clogged? This is the Vent Hose that goes from the Dryer to the outside of your house. It should be checked for free air movement. The next thing-- Could be a defective Timer or Control Module.
Find where you lost power and WHY!!
