If the dryer was running during an outage, even with a very brief flash there usually is a power surge when it comes back on. If everything else seems to work okay it's possible that the heating elements got fried. You can check them with a voltmeter. Also check to seek if the dryer has overlaod protection. Most have a reset. One other thing that could happen, the breaker is defective. That you can check at the back of the dryer where the plug cable attaches to the dryer.

The power outage probably caused the thermostat to go back to factory default settings. You need to go through the advanced setup procedures in the owners manual on page 6. This will allow you to turn the heat pump back on.

Whirlpool Dryer not heating


If it was taking longer to heat it probably has a restricted vent. Check for lint build-up. May also have blower cage full of lint.
UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!
To access blower cage, remove rear panel. Remove four screws holding duct on left side in place at bottom. Remove two screws at filter area on top. Pull duct out at bottom and reach inside and remove lint.
Also ohm out all thermos. Check thermos on side of heater. Check white one to right of duct you cleaned. Check between larger two wires on four wire thermo. All should show zero resistance.
Check between two outside blades of plug. Should have about 220 volts. Pull plug out slightly and carefully check for power between outside blades. Then check for 110 volts from center to either outside blade. It only requires one 11o volt circuit to run, but both to heat.

Microwave runs but does not heat.


Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part
