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 replaced the electric heating element, thermal fuse, and still does not work? I have model AED4675YQ0 I check breakers ok, the power on the power connection reads 240 on the outer 2 connections and the left and center read 120 shouldn't they all read 240.
For the power supply, from the 2 outer terminals there will be 240 vac. From the left side to the center terminal will read 120 vac and from the right to the center terminal should read 120 vac. If not then there is a power issue loss of neutral. There are 2 components other than the thermostats which would cause the heating element not to work. First is the motor and second the timer. The best option is to disconnect the power to the unit and access the heating element. Disconnect one wire that is going to the heating element, preferably the one on the thermostat side. Plug the unit back up and using a multimeter you will want to turn the dryer on and test for 120 vac at the terminal on the heater where the wire was disconnected. What this will do is eliminate the heater element itself and the motor. If there is 120 vac at this point then you know the heater is good and the motor is good because the other 120 vac coming through the thermostats is the timer side of the circuit. If there is not 120 vac at that point then you will want to test the other terminal on the heater and check for 120 vac. If there is not 120 vac then the motor would be bad and if there is 120 vac then the heater would be the issue. If there is 120 vac at each point then the heater is faulty.
Good Morning, my dryer runs but has very low heat. Also I noticed that it will run on the timer portion of the dial but not on the other. I turned the dryer on last night and noticed it was still running this morning.(was not on the timer side) ran the dryer on the timer side previously and clothes were still damp but dryer did shut down after full time ran out
Answer Tom, Check and make sure the lint filter is clean, the dryer isn't overloaded and the exhaust vent pipe and vent hood are not clogged or restricted. If there is an air restriction, the high limit thermostat will open and cause power to the timer motor to be bypassed and the timer won't advance in the "auto" cycles. On the timed dry cycles, the timer will advance and turn off, but the dryer heat will not be correct and the clothes won't dry.
dryer runs red hot have replace thermal dryer fuse and element what part do I need to replace now..whirlpool model # LER3624JQ1
Answer Eileen, You should check and make sure the wires to the heater, and the heater element have not over heated or shorted to the casing or chassis ground. Then check the regulating thermostat 694674 and hi limit thermostat 279816 to make sure they aren't shorted or stuck closed, the exhaust temperature should average 150 dgrs. if the dryer is heating properly.
My dryer is running but I do not have heat- The heater element is warm but does not turn on high.
Answer Hello Hastiin. Make sure the element and the voltage is good. If so, then it sounds like the timer 8299779 may be bad and not working the element properly.
Only blows cold air. What is the best way to determine what part may be the culprit?
Answer Hello Annette. 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
