Drier starts and heats but never stops. only stops if you turn off manualy
With the unit not shutting off, this issue would most likely be caused by a faulty timer which is part number 8182522.
My dryer is function and can run cycles, but there is no heat. I have cleaned the vent and made sure nothing is being blocked.
Answer Hello Will. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My dryer is an Whirlpool ultimate care and I have checked all the fuses and the heater coil itself and all are good but I still don't have heat coming out. I'm lost and don't know where or what to do next. please help
Answer Hello Gary,
If 240Vac is available at the terminal block, you will need to disconnect the red wire from the heat switch that leads to the thermal cutout, (the other goes to the timer). If 120Vac is present on the switch terminal, the timer and heat switch is good and the problem will be the centrifugal switch in the motor 279827, the heating element, the high limit thermostat, the operating thermostat, or the thermal fuse. All that is left in the circuit is the harness.
Whrilpool dryer gets too hot on all cycles.
Answer Hello Gail. Check the vent and the blower wheel. If all is clear, you will need to check the cycling thermostat on the unit.
My dryer stopped heating. I checked the elements and sensors for continuity and all were ok. I took off the control panel and found a burned terminal on the relay. I took the control panel apart and found the corresponding solder joint also burned and not making a good connection. Tried to resolder but still no good. I purchased a refurbished control panel and installed it and it worked great for two weeks and then the same problem came back. Same connector and solder joint burned. What could be causing the same exact problem to occur?
Answer Hello Dennis,
If your model number is actually GLEQ2152EE0, you will need to verify the voltage in the wall outlet. Incorrect voltage can cause high current flow. If you have access to a clamp on ampmeter you can clamp it around one wire in the heating circuit and make sure there is not a higher amperage than about 20.5. If it is at this reading, you will need to verify the thermistor reads about 50Kohms of resistance. If the amperage is high you will need to verify all connectors are fitting tight on there connection points and the harness is not crimped and the heating element is not shorted to ground.
I asked a question last evening and am still waiting for a response? please respond asap
You will want to disconnect the vent from the back of the unit and run the dryer on one of the cycles that is not advancing for 10 minutes with nothing in the unit. If the timer advances then the ducting needs to be cleaned out and if it does not advance then the cycling thermostat would be the issue.
