Dryer wont start after installing w10410999


I had the same problem. Root cause was connecting the red wire to ground instead of pin 5.

Ground is between pins 1 and 5. Since it has no label, it is easy to miss the fact that pin 5 is not right next to 1, and connect red to ground instead.

I pulled the fuse next to the thermistor on my HE3 but I cant tell if it is blown. Nothing is melted


you cant tell by looking at them.you will need an ohms meter to check them for continuity. Place the red lead to one of the spades and the black lead to the other spade. If you get any movement at all on the dial or gauge, the fuse is good.

Dryer worked for two days


Yes, you did. I advise you to either call me here Whirlpool Parts Surplus OR get a new pigtale for the dryer. AND a thermal fuse. Take the 9-11 1/4" screws out you will see a white skinny fuse straight down off the outgoing air duct. check continuity or connect the wires. I advise you to get a new cord before you start it again.

Best of luck

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.

Gas dryer is not heating up, after being moved


BE SURE THE GAS IS TURNED BACK ON. CHECK THE TEMP SELECTOR SWITCH TO BE SURE IT IS SETTING ON A SELECTION AND NOT BETWEEN SETTINGS. BE SURE IT IS NOT ON FLUFF AIR/NO HEAT. IF THAT IS ALL O.K., THERE ARE FOUR ITEMS TO CHECK IN THE HEAT CIRCUIT.
1. IGNITOR. CHECK FOR 120 VOLTS AT THE IGNITOR TERMINAL CONNECTION WITH DRYER RUNNING.
2. WATCH THE IGNITOR. IF IT GLOWS, CLICKS, GOES OFF WITH NO FLAME, ONE OF THE SOLENOIDS IS BAD. REPLACE BOTH.
3. IF THE IGNITOR COMES ON BUT NEVER SHUTS OFF,
THE RADIANT SENSOR IS BAD.
4. IF THERE IS NO RESPONSE FROM ANY OF THE CHECKS ABOVE, THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE ATTACHED TO THE EXHAUST PORT. IT MAY BE BAD. CHECK FOR 120 VOLTS ON THE TWO TERMINALS OF THE THERMAL FUSE WITH THE DRYER RUNNING. IF YES, THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD.
