It could be a bad: heating element or internal temperature switch. but i would turn you circuit breaker in your house off then back on first. sometimes the dual breaker will trip only one side leaving you with a partially functioning machine.

by Samurai Appliance Repair Man
 
dryer runs but doesn’t heat, don’t even think it’s the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse was the problem, the dryer wouldn’t run at all.
First thing to do is verify your source voltage for the dryer; for those of you in Manhattan, this means to use your multi-meter to measure the voltage at the dryer outlet to make sure you have 240v. Y’see, Slick, the dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run. But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both lines to get hot.
If the source voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are listed below. As always, you should use your meter and the tech sheet supplied with your dryer (and cleverly hidden inside the control panel) to verify:
1. Even Heat Board
2. Heater Relay
3. Thermostat
4. Sensor

Dryer heats sometimes and sometimes it doesn't


It could be a house electrical problem. Dryers need 240v to heat but can run with only 120v. Sometimes I seen were the power cord where it plugs into the house outlet is loose and will sometime heat and other times not.

If the dryer inside light comes on can the thermal fuse ok


No relations at all......

Light comes on means there is power and your door is open.

Thermal fuse failure means there is no heat. No current going through your heating circuit. Most models and brands will still turn the drum without heat. But there are some models thermal fuse will completely shut the power to heating circuit and drum motor. Like KENMORE certain dryers made by Whirlpool corporation

I have a whirlpool dry mod#5636 in my home I have 110 the cord on the dryer is for 220 can I change it to 110 and will it work right..


No it will not,dryers with 110 volt plugs heat on gas,220 dryers heat with electric,putting a 110 vac plug on dryer for 220vac,the motor will run but it will not heat
your 2 options are

1) have a electrician come and run 220 vac circuit

2) purchase a gas dryer

On gas dryers an intermitting heat problem is almost always the coils on the gas valve. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/

Heat shuts off after few minuets of running


Normal 0 Hi, You need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. This is a very common problem with the newer gas dryers. We have them for $29.95 on out web site www.whilpoolpartssurplus.com
If I can assist you further on how to replace them, please let me know.

Thanks
