Try to put the dryer on a timed cycle and see if the timer will advance. If you have the dryer on an automatic cycle and it is not heating it can run for a long long time. If the timer will advance in a time cycle you may just need to check your thermostats and the heater on your dryer. To do this pull the dryer out and unplug it, then take the back off. You will need a voltage meter to continue. Check the voltage at the plug and make sure you have two seperate 110 volt legs and 220 volts across. If the voltage is correct check the heater for continuity and make sure it is not grounded. Then check the thermostat on the top of the heater housing. If all of these parts are good and you have the proper voltage you will need a new timer

SOURCE: 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.

Whirlpool dryer ler6620pq1 starts and dries fine..however, you have to place something in front of start knob or it shuts off. works normally as long as something in holding start knob in


There are centripetal contacts in the motor that have to work or the motor wont stay running (spinning).

CHECK THE POWER IN YOU BREAKER BOX.....
220 volt dryers have 1 (large) breaker or 2 (small) breakers (tied together) in you breaker panel. If there are 2 breakers tied together, it is possible that only one has tripped causing you to lose a phase. That could cause weird issues like you are experiencing. Try turning off this (double) breaker and then back on again.

If it's still working the same way you may have a bad motor. Check the parts / troubleshooting site below if it's still not functioning properly.

" If the dryer hums when the start switch is activated, or if the motor runs only while activating the start switch, the motor might be defective or something might be binding the drum preventing it from turning freely. "

Brand new Gas whirlpool duet sport drier will not heat up. Gas line hooked up correctly HELP


Good day,
If it's new, and your sure there is gas in the line to the dryer, then you are entitled to a service call under warranty.
Whirlpool warranties it's dryers for one year from date of purchase.
Call your selling dealer. New one's won't work sometimes.

When I turn it on it will run for a short time and cut off.Like it is over heating when it cools down about 1 hour latter I can contuine drying intill it does it again


Good day,
There is a thermal device in the motor that will shut it off it it gets too hot. Once cooled down, it will restart.
Replacing the motor seems to be your only option.

If you want to replace it yourself, here is an excellent tutorial.
If the hyperlink fails to work, just copy and paste it into the address bar of your browser. Yes, it's a Whirlpool product.
Appliance parts houses that sell Whirlpool parts will have the correct motor.

Dryer won't heat.


Hi, THe heating element is located in the back of your dryer. UNPLUG the dryer. Remove the back panel and you will see the element on the right hand side. If you have an ohms meter, check continuity on all the thermostats and the element. If any of them have no continuity, it will need replaced. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

My Whirlpool, LER6620PQ1 dryer will not stop running, nor will it heat at all. What could be the cause? Since both issues began at same time, I would think it is a similar cause.

New Whirlpool Dryer taking too long to dry


Old dryers worked on the premis, "bake them til they are done". Newer dryers are all about saving energy. Newer dryers rely far more on airflow than thier predecessors. Most likely if your clothes are taking 120 minutes to dry for a new dryer, you have a ventalation problem. Make sure (even if it was "professionally" installed) that the vent from the back of the dryer to your wall in not kinked, bent over, or other wise restricted. Also make sure when the air is venting to the outside of your house you can feel a fair amount of air pressure there. Bulid up over time or even a nest being built in your vent can cause a restriction on airflow. These can be cleaned by a professional service or many appliance and hardware sell cleaning brushes and kits. Worse case scenario, Whirlpool will pay for customer instructs for the first 6 months. So even if they have to come out and tell you it's a problem with your house vent or electrical supply, whirlpool can be billed for this. Of course if there was a manufacture defect off the production line, repairs are still covered under warranty as well.
