There are several causes for this symptom, how old is the dryer? Chances are the element is broken and needs to be replaced. There are also some safety switches that will keep the element from coming on if the dryer is overheated, so even though it is not overheated, if any of these safeties have failed, they will not allow the element to heat.

Dryer will not get hot


how old is it? One thing i run into a lot, is that the exhaust vent may be clogged.
if that is the case, clothes tend not to dry due to lack of air circulation. And the heating element in the dryer will not kick on. That vent is typically located in the back lower panel of the dryer. And is hooked up to a vent hose. check the hose for debris (lent) remove anything you might find. also disconnect where the hose meets the dryer, and check dryer portion as well. If nothing is clogged, then you may have a bad heating element.

Whirlpool model LGB6000KQ1 electric dryer. I have to run the dryer two to three times before the clothes dry. There is a little heat, and I cleaned all the vents. Do I need a new heating element?


if the exhaust hose is clear of debris and you feel a good flow of air through it then ' Yes ' I would say that the heating element is bad.

Dryer not heating.


First clean out the exhaust vent tubing entirely and then try it. It may heat up very hot if thoroughly cleaned out. A moister sensor detects any lint build up and put the burner into a check mode that prevents home fires in the exhaust vents

Dryer runs but no heat in it LGR4634PQ0


Check the simple things first - is the lint screen/trap clean? Is the exhaust hose free of obstructions? Can you feel air blowing out of the dryer exhaust when it is running?

If you answer yes to all of the above, you need to check the heating element. I would download a schematic from the Whirlpool website so you can check for continuity of the element and to see if you are getting power to the element. You will need to remove some covers from the dryer to make these tests.

Whirlpool duet electric dryer doesn't always start and shuts off


Have you cleaned the exit hose thoroughly? Pulled the exhaust line and cleaned?
Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal 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 element 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.

Not drying as quickly, requires 2 cycles


look inside your lint trap to see if it is clogged. Also remove your vent hose to check for clogs there and at the outlet. make sure your hose isn't kinked.

Hot enough?


To check dryer temperature, you will need a thermometer capable of measuring instantaneous temperature. Remove the exhaust hose and place the measuring device at the exhaust of the dryer with the dryer empty. The temperature should peak around 140-150 degrees Fahrenheit with a minimum around 120 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit.

LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust.Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it isnot crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexiblefoil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check theoutside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, theexhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers and at this website:http://www.linteater.com.

Thermostat & Fuse Wiring


The heating element failure along with the symptoms you are now experiencing, may indicate blocked or restricted air flow through the exhaust. If airflow is poor, the heater will overheat and eventually fail.
