    WHAT is the reason you think you need to clean lint inside the dryer?????????????????????

    There is no need to get inside for lint!
    Any lint that falls back inside Will blow out the exhaust pipe leading out the wall or burns off!
    That's why it is so important to clean the lint filter before every load!
    Who told you to open it and look for lint inside!

The circuits are on and there is electricity coming out of plug in, what else could be wrong





















when the dryer is run is it warm inside when you open it ? If it is try cleaning the vent tube and make sure its not clogged with lint if the dryer is cold inside you probably need a new heating element.

Dryer dont get hot


Try cleaning all the vents inside the dryer all the way to the outside. Be sure and clean around the blower wheel lots of things get in where the blower is pencils nails everything. They will block the wheel so it can't turn. Also vacuum the lint out of the motor. Lint most likely the problem. Hope this helps.

The dryer still runs and the drum is turning. No heat. Yesterday I did notice the outside of the dryer got very hot for a while.


The thermal cut-off has blown open due to the high-limit thermostat failure to cycle off in order to regulate the heating element temperature as the noticed extreme dryer temperature indicates. These two components are wired in series with the heating element as a safety measure to cut power to the element should the dryer temperature go extremely high like your case.

Disconnect power then make sure the lint filter is clear, the vent system is not restricted, and the inside of the cabinet is clean. A vacuum cleaner may be used to extract lint built up inside the dryer cabinet particularly the bottom. Replacing both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat is a must but only after the all areas mentioned are cleaned.

No lint in the lint filter


Check air flow out of unit and ensure you do have some foreign object stuck in the blower wheel. UNPLUG unit, and clear out exhaust tube from dryer. Have a professional clean house vent if you cannot see where the vent exits the house. It is common on Whirlpool, top of cabinet vent opening to have objects fall into the lint screen opening and restrict airflow.

The sensors are two metal strips inside the drum. They are on the right side just behind the filter. They are silver colored and have a slight curve to them. You cannot see them unless you put your head inside the drum. I clean my sensors with a non metal pot cleaner like 3M Scotch Brite. These sensors also fail if you dry silicon backed carpets.
