What is the first action people do when they notice that their dryer does not work properly? To call a dryer repair technician? Surely not! To press all the buttons hoping to resurrect their appliance! Absolutely true! Still, we do not recommend playing such games with a faulty Whirlpool dryer if you have no intention to replace your appliance. If there is no error code but your Whirlpool dryer is not operating as expected, perform a general reset. Disconnect power to the dryer and wait 30 minutes then reconnect the power and resume normal use. If the problem continues or an error code returns, contact our customer support team for advice or repair. Many dryers are equipped with a reset button on the control panel. If the motor won't run, let the dryer cool for about ten minutes. Then push the reset button. If there are no problems with the motor, switches, or electrical system, this should restart the dryer. Furthermore, a thermal fuse might be faulty. The thermal fuse is the most common problem with Whirlpool dryers not running. The vent being stopped normally causes dryers to overheat. So if your thermal fuse is bad you should check the vent. To check the thermal fuse, first unplug the dryer and remove it back.
Whirlpool Tumble Dryer Reset Procedure:
- Turn on the tumble dryer main power.
- Within 10 seconds turn the program selector from off to the 6 o'clock position, pointing straight down.
- Push the "Start" button three times.
- Turn the program selector to the "one" position which should be the CW or airing program.
- Always get professional help if you are not sure what part of the dryer is damaged or faulty. This is especially true if your unit has an active warranty. If you continue to have no hot air at all coming from your dryer, visit our support team to request service.
