Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I'm assuming your dryer is still running, correct? That is, the drum spins, but the dryer doesn't heat? If this is the case, the following link gives you some great advice on how to troubleshoot these symptoms:
Pay particular attention to the portion of the write up where it discusses proper ventilation. In many cases, what appears to be a major problem, could be a need for a good cleaning. A dryer left in a condition where it is starved for air, will cause the heating circuits will actually over-heat. Over an extended period, the heating circuits will eventually fail. The most common failed item is the thermal cut-out. It is designed to trip in an overheat condition. Read through the write-up thoroughly and let me know what you discover. Hopefully, you will not require any replacement parts. If you do, post back with your COMPLETE model number and I can assist you with identifying part numbers. I hope you find this information helpful.
