Got an error code 'PF' on display and after that no heat
Answer Hello Steve! The “PF” flashes to indicate that a power failure occurred while the dryer was running. Press Start to continue the cycle, or press Pause/Cancel to clear the display. You will need to check voltage under a load and for loose connections at the terminal block on the back. Otherwisebad it can be a bad control board W10111606. Hope this helps!

I have an whirlpool electric dryer, bought used. I feel heat and takes a long time to dry any amount of clothing. I took the back panel off only to find the exhaust severely clogged. What would be most likely the problem?
Answer Hello D. 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. If not, 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
The dryer does not get real hot and so takes a long time to really dry a load of clothes
The first thing to check is the venting to make sure that it is not clogged. Check from the blower wheel to the outside of the home. If this checks ok then you will want to check the cycling thermostat as it sounds like it is short cycling the unit and not allowing proper temperature in the unit.
My dryer will not turn on although all the lights are on. The sensor light is green when I try to run the dryer.
From what I read its the thermal fuse.
Where can I purchase it and how do I access the fuse. Do you have step by step instructions and or a video.
To access the thermal fuse you will want to pull the dryer out and disconnect the power. Once the power has been disconnected then remove the rear panel. The thermal fuse is located on the lower left side on the blower housing. To test the fuse you would do a continuity test across the terminals of the fuse. No continuity means that the part is faulty and would need to be replaced.
