Question about Whirlpool Dryers
The dryer heats at the start (after rest), and maintains the heat for about 15 minutes. After that, the dryer continues to tumble, but the dial (i.e. control timer knob) never moves if Auto Dry is chosen (the knob does move in Timed Dry.)
I did remove the front panel plug & can see the heating elements glowing intermittently. The light cycles on & off once (not sure if that's right?)I don't know where the fuse is(even with the repair parts list I can't make it out), but if the dryer's heating at all, does that mean the fuse is OK?
Fuse is ok . Problem is the soils on the burner valve . If the dryer heats when started , the electricity goes thru the coils to open the valve . Once the coils get warm , 1 will open (short) until it cools back down . The coils can be replaced just by removing the front panel . Only 2 screws hold the coils in place . No turning off gas , dissasembling dryer .
