My Whirlpool dryer is not blowing any heat. What can I do to fix it?
Answer Hello Diego. 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. Test for power coming from the relay board to the heater. 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
Dryer will not start. Push initial button and it lights up. After seeing, push start button and does not start. Timers runs, but nothing else.
Answer Hello Gary,
If the displayed number flashes, make sure the door is completely closed. Press and hold the Start pushbutton down for 3 seconds. If this does not work, check the thermal fuse and the voltage out for the motor terminal P1-4 blue for 120Vac. If no voltage, replace the board. You should also be sure to check the belt is on and the belt switch has not tripped off.

My dryer takes 3 to 5 cycles to dry one load of clothes. I removed the element and ohms read 9.8. Should I replace the heating element or better yet how do I know it's good or bad?
Answer Hello Andre. No, if the element is closed for continuity, it is good. If the unit is heating, It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
