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!

Dryer does not have any power. Previously, when the timer was turned to add time, you could hear the clock clicking and counting down even prior to engaging the start button. I do not believe there is a fuse and wondering if there is a replacement part or a test to determine perhaps which part is faulty. The outlet has power. I even double checked by plugging into a different outlet.
If the unit is not running at all then you will want to check the thermal fuse that is located on the blower housing. If this thermal blows it will cut power to entire unit. You will want to do a continuity test to see if it is good. If it does not have continuity then it is bad. If this is the case you will also want to make sure that your venting from the blower wheel to the outside of the home is clear. A restricted dryer vent can cause the thermal fuse to blow.
Dryer runs fine on high heat. On low heat cycles, there is only cool air (motor runs and drum turns). What part needs to be checked and/or replaced?
You will want to check the timer for 120 vac from R to Neutral. If there is not 120 vac then replace the timer and if there is 120 vac then check the heater for 240 vac. If there is 240 vac then replace the heater.
My whirlpool electric dryer has power to it but will not do anything.
Answer Hello Barry. You will need to test the thermal fuse and the door switch on the unit. They should read closed for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. 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
What does thermal fuse do?
Answer Hello Tony. The thermal fuse prevents the dryer from overheating and catching on fire. It is used for safety reasons.
Dryer runs but does not heat.
You will want to check the thermal fuses 279816 and thermostat for continuity. If they do not have continuity then you would need to replace the parts. If they are blown then you will also want to check the venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of your home for clogs or restrictions. This could cause the failure.

I have a gas Kenmore dryer. I do get heat while clothes are tumbling, but apparently not enough to dry the clothes. I just replaced the thermostat. No change. I'm not sure if I should replace the thermal fuse next? What should be my next step?
Answer Hello Del. 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.
