Question and Answers


Why is my Whirlpool dryer getting warm but not hot?


From what you’re describing it sounds like a faulty heating element or low supply voltage. You will need a meter to check the supply voltage & ohms value of the heating element. After disconnecting power to the dryer. Pull the dryer out & remove the rear panel. Plug the dryer back in & take the voltage reading at the power supply cord connected to the back of the dryer at the terminal block. You should read close to 220volts. Unplug the dryer again & remove the 2 leads on the element & place your meter set to read resistance across the terminals. You should read close to 11 ohms. You can also remove the element & inspect the coils. If you see the heating element coils touching each other or the metal housing you will need to replace the heating element. It is rare to see a thermostat problem causing this symptom. Once you have confirmed the voltage is correct & the heating element is good, please get back with us for more troubleshooting tips if needed.
