Where is the orange wire you show in the video that connects to the jumper wire? We do not have one.
Answer Hello Dave. Some models do not use the orange wire. If you don't have one, you can skip that step. Thanks.
Do I need to replace just the heating element if the dryer is still working other than the heat? It will keep running and not stop but there is no heat what so ever...
Answer Hello Tina. 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
When I set the timer, the heating element comes on before the start button is activated
With the heating element turning on with the unit motor being off then the issue is caused by a stuck switch on the motor which would require the motor to be replaced.
The dryer starts and heats, but never stops, the timer never moves, so heats for some time and stops heating, but never stop spining.
Answer Hello Valeria,
This will either be a contact in the timer or the centrifugal switch in the motor has stuck in the closed position. For part numbers and/or a more detailed diagnosis, please list the model number from the units' I.D. tag.
Whirlpool Dryer does not fully dry clothes. We have to put dryer on twice to adequately dry clothes. Possible solution?
You will want to check your venting for obstructions. When checking the venting you want to check from the blower wheel to the outside of your home. A clogged vent will cause the unit to not dry clothes in a timely manner and will cause longer drying times.
My drier runs for 5 minutes then shuts off. If you try to turn the tub it hangs up. What can I do to fix it and what part do I need. Thanks
Answer Hello Michael. You need to check and see if the rollers, felt seals, or pulley is bad and needs to be replaced. It sounds like it is binding up the tub in the unit.
My dryer heats up and runs for about 5 min. And then quits. Any guesses?
Answer Hello Bryan. Check and see if the tub is binding up. If not, then the motor may be overheating and need to be replaced on the unit.
