Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer won't heat. LEB6000PQ0

A:

Thank you for your question. I understand that diagnosing the cause can be difficult. You have replaced the usual components that fail. That leaves the heating element, the timer and the control. First, I would check the outlet and breaker. If the double breaker partially tripped, that will keep the heating element from working properly. Flip the breaker off, then back on. If you want to check the voltage, this video should help. If the dryer still does not heat, check the continuity of the elment and look for damaged coils. To check, remove one wire off of the heating element and measure the resistance through that component. You should measure between 7.8 and 11.8 ohms of resistance. If the element is within this range, then it should be okay. Also check for broken or damaged wires. If further help is needed, please reply. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Whirlpool dryer model LEB6000PQ0 LEB6000PQ0

A:

I am glad that we are discussing this topic this morning.  Your issue is very likely due to the fact that your venting system should be cleaned out from the back of your dryer to where it exits from the outside of your house.  Sears has a vent cleaning division that is very effective at getting your system perfect.  Whether your system vents to the roof or across the length of your house, the Sears team will remedy and clean out your vents.  I would also suggest that you check the lid at the end of your vent to the outside to make sure the hinges have not rusted or that any birds or mammals have made a nest that would hinder air flow.  If you would like to make an appointment or ask for more details you can click here. I hope this helps and have a nice day.

We just [yesterday] replaced the outside vent and all of the duct work (went from flexible ducts to rigid, smooth) so, this is not the problem. I feel no air through the vent outside. The dryer was working fine last week.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. From what you are describing it sounds like you may have a blockage in the dryer that is preventing the air flow.  The most common cause for this is a lint buildup in the machine. All dryers will allow some lint past the lint screen and drum seals.  It is a good idea to clean out the lint once a year or so.  A vacuum extension hose works great for removing lint.  If the dryer is several years old then the amount of lint can be enough to stop the air.  The lint screen should have a good fit but no lint screen is perfect and most allow a small amount of lint past.  Some dryers have a rear felt seal that may fail and allow lint to pass into the cabinet. Just clean out all of the lint in the unit, and it should begin working again. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
