SOURCE: Whirlpool AWZ 7303 tumbling but not drying.

blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

SOURCE: Not Heating to dry clothes

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause a fire, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Good Luck,
Hope this helps

Trying to get the service Manual for awz 3477 whirlpool dryer. The heating element goes on but after about 5 minutes it turns off + lint light goes on. Have cleaned the traps. thinking thermostat?


Have you cleaned the sensor bar? Did you remove the grates and clean out the lint traps, not the filter the actual traps? Does it have any codes stored? Most modern dryers can give error codes (even ones without a display)

Whirlpool AWZ 8578 - does not stop, always needs manual switch off


These symptoms most usually are a bad timer/control. If the dial turns all by itself, and continues to turn by itself like a clock does, it is likely a timer/control must be replaced. Same results if it will not advance by itself either.
You could type in "Sears Parts" for the new part, typing in your complete model number. If you wished to try a used control, after obtaining a part number, you could type that in to "e-bay" and see what you find in new or used parts there. I do.
Be blessed.

I got a Whirlpool AW Z 865 dryer. It is a condenser dryer and the water is not going up to the collecting bucket, but remains below and then leaks out and floods the floor when I open the little pull door...


I had a similar problem with a Whirlpool AWZ 8578 Tumble Dryer. The solution was to clean the fluff out of the rubber grommet in the drain hole under the left front of the condenser. Then the water from the condenser could run into the collection container underneath.
