    Hello, I have the same problem with my whirlpool thin twin:
    the dryer doesn't heat anymore and the washer only get water, after that, nothing hapens. Another strange thing is that the washer only "works" (just get water!) when the dryer is on.
    I guess you know well this product, can you help me please ?
    Thank you

I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

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.

My dryer stops after a few minutes and all the lights flash. It stops turning and doesnt get warm or hot in that time. I have cleaned all filters and emptied the water. Can anyone help?


I believe it has something to do with the computer circuitry. You might try to reboot it. Unplug your dryer for a few minutes, plug it back in and see if that works. It did for my washer. Good luck.

Dryer stoped "heating up" the


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

My tumble drier dont heat up. It works but its


there will be a red overheat switch on the rear on most models, simply pull the machine out and press reset, the most cpmmon cause is running when empty or a build up of lint. if the doesnt work then it will be an open circuit element.
