Question about Whirlpool Dryers
First you need to clean the lint filter more often. Now with that said you probably over heated the thermal fuse and that needs to be replaced, Take your model and serial number and google parts for your dryer and purchase a thermal fuse.
Unplug the dryer, safety first!
remove the dryers backpanel, on the rear of the dryer venting is the thermal fuse, replace as needed, if you can use a VOM meter check to see if it is open? now with the dryer moved out of the way make sure to clean and or replace the venting as needed, The dryer needs to breath and if it cant it will take another thermal fuse out.
One last thought, how old is your dryer? 12 to 15 years and has done a load of clothes every day for your family of ? it may have worn seals and I would suggest its time to look for a new dryer.
