Question and Answers


How can I trouble shoot to find out if I need a new heating element or a thermal fuse? I have a whir


I recommend checking the two (2) circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer located inside the house circuit breaker box. Locate both breakers dedicated for the dryer and flip both circuit breakers OFF and back ON 2-3 times and recheck the dryer for heat. I added some useful information in the images below. If the dryer continues to no heat, the failure could be one of the following:

  • Voltage supply
  • Timer
  • Fabric selector switch
  • Control thermostat
  • High limit thermostat
  • Heating element
  • Motor centrifugal switch
  • Burnt wiring connection.

In order to diagnose the failure will require a volt/ohm meter to test each component connected in series with the heating element for continuity. The front panel and drum must be removed on order to access all the components except the timer and fabric selector switch.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
