It could be several things but the element could should be the last part i would check first if you are still using fuses change them both if that doesnt work call for service call a good service man stay away from major companies they are expensive i know i worked for most of them

Whirlpool Duet WED9150WW dryer heats up but does not spin. The belt is not broken and door switch appears to be working.


If the dryer is on and everything is working except the drum is not turning, then the motor is bad. Here is the new motor to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Whirlpool electric dryer LER5620KQ1. won't heat up timer does not advance


Same problem with my Whirlpool Dryer: Model LER4634EZ2 which stopped heating. I checked the coils that was "OK" then I checked the fuse that was "OK" I replaced the Thermal Fuse and High Limit Thermostat then after starting the dryer the heat came on ... problem solved NO.... the dryer just kept running and running until I opened the dryer door. Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

I have a 4 year old duet dryer that does not heat. Is it difficult to get/replace the heating element?


If its only 4 years old you probably have a bad thermal protector, Take the bottom front cover off and check with a meter to see if any are open. They cost about 35$. Otherwise look for a local guy to do the job for 150$

Whirlpool Duet Dryer not heating


The first thing to do would be to check if the element is broken. Most dryers have a couple of screws that hold the top, and it opens like the hood of a car. The next step is to remove the drum, usually a couple of screws holding the front.
