Question and Answers

Q:

havin poblem with whirlpool gas dryer not drying already replaced temp control but the dryer keeps shutting down the gas not allowing it to get hot enough

A:

Based on your symptom there is likely a restriction or blockage in the venting system. For testing purposes only: Disconnect the vent hose and put a wet load in the dryer and start it. See if the flame stays on longer. The flame is supposed to shut off once the exhaust temperature reaches the operating temperature of approximately 150 degrees. You can check the exhaust temperature while the dryer is running. The temperature should average around 150 degrees. This means it can fall below 150 and it can heat above 150 degrees with an average of 150 degrees. If the flame stays on longer and it reaches the operating temperature with the vent hose disconnect then this test would indicate that there is a venting issue. NOTE: DO NOT leave the vent hose disconnected after testing. Reconnect the vent hose to the dryer. Also, remove the lint screen and take to your sink and wash it with warm water and a soft bristle brush. If you use fabric softeners, the softener can cause a clear layer to accumulate on the lint filter causing an air flow restriction too.

Q:

Where is the heater relay located on my Whirlpool dryer?

A:

You dryer does not have a heater relay. Most likely the flame/radient sensor on the side of the burner funnel is open and preventing the path of voltage to the igniter.

The voltage supplied to the igniter originates from the timer. When the timer is turned on timer contact BK to R closes. The voltage is carried down the red wire to the Hi-limit thermostat which should be closed, the wire color changes to black at the Hi-limit thermostat over to the thermal cut off which should be closed. The wire changes color to a red wire with a white tracer which connects over to the operating thermostat which should be close when it calls for the igniter to come on. The wire color changes back to a solid red wire over to the thermal fuse which should be closed. The wire coming off the thermal fuse changes to blue which will connect to coils on the gas valve assembly. There is a flame sensor mounted on the side of the burner funnel that must be closed or the igniter will not come on too.

I sent an image of the wiring diagram for you to follow.

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