Whirlpool AWZ7303 condensing tumble dryer . Drum not turning although it is heating


If your Whirlpool dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers, thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F. Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer is easier than it sounds. Instructions:

  • Clean out the lint screen in your Whirlpool clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryer to overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer's heating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and wash it in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.
  • Look behind the dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions. Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lint that has built up.
  • Go outside and check your Whirlpool dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, bird nests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger your dryer's thermal fuse.
  • Disconnect your dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.
  • Access the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer by removing the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in place and it should easily come free.
  • Look between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermal fuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wires connected to it.
  • Bypass the thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer while you perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together the two wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it back in. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start." If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermal fuse needs to be replaced.
  • Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Whirlpool dryer. Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape that you used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from the thermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer and discard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing and tightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

    If Bunn unit has been stored for a while, how do i clean it and get it ready to use?


    Hi, W/D here.
    To get your Bunn working again, place a filter into the basket, fill the reservoir, and allow it to begin dispensing into the carafe. This will take several pots of water to get it filled and overflowing (dispensing). Plug it in, and let the reservoir heat up. It's not necessary at this point to have the heating plate turned on, but you can do so if desired to check that it is working, then turn it back off. Once you hear the reservoir heating up, pour in 8 ounces of white vinegar, and let the machine dispense into the carafe. Place an additional 8 ounces of white vinegar into the carafe, and pour back into the reservoir. Let the water heat up again, and let the vinegar solution sit in the reservoir for about 30 minutes. Top off the carafe with cool water and allow the carafe to cool with the warming plate turned off. After the 30 minutes, pour the contents of the carafe back into the reservoir, and it will dispense again. The water in the reservoir will heat up again. Check the coffee filter for residue. If you see a lot of grainy material, change the filter, and repeat the cycle until the filter comes out clean. Save your old filters as you go. Lay them out in order on paper towels, and you'll be able to mark your progress. When the filters clear up, discontinue recycling the vinegar solution and, instead, fill the reservoir with fresh water. The sediment has by now been freed up (de-scaled) and will continue to come off in smaller and smaller quantities. Each time you place fresh water in the machine, the dispensed liquid will smell less and less like vinegar. When no vinegar odor can be detected, you are finished.
    Best regards, --W/D--

    Heater cycles on / off


    This could be a water flo problem. you need to chech to be sure your by-pass valve is closed down enough to force water threw heater, There is a internal by-pass that could be a problem also, or a bad pressure switch. If the by-pass isn't the problem then you should check these also.

    My awz7303 jus blows cold air and won't dry my clothes


    With the power disconnected you can check the resistance of the heating element. Remove the back of the dryer. Remove the connectors to the element and if the resistance measured is any greater than 25 Ohms on 220V-250Vac models and 12 Ohms on 110VAC Models then the element will need replacing. If the element is OK then check the thermal fuse(s) or thermistor on top of the housing which are there to present overheating. That’s really all there is to it if the motor is running and the timer is working OK.

    Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher


    Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.
