Default Dryer not heating
Model Number: WET3300SQ1   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Dryer will not heat on any setting but blower runs. I have 220V at terminal block (110 on each feed to center and 220 from outside feeds). All thermostats and thermal fuse have continuity as well as hi-limit switch. The heating element reads 11ohms.

I checked all thermostat continuity with a wire disconnected.

One of the things that I found while testing continuity, one of the leads on the push switch to start the dryer {not sure if I am saying this correctly} has continutiy to the chassis/ground.

Any hints?

Hi.

OK, if you checked operating thermostat, thermal fuse, hi-limit, thermal cut off and heating element and they all good only two things left.
It's the motor contacts 1M-2M (they should be closed when motor runs) and the timer.
To check the timer set it to Timed Regular and check continuity between BK-R and TM-BY. No continuity - replace the timer

Part number: W10113761

Part number: W10113761


Here are the breakdown diagrams and Washer / Dryer Control Panel parts for Whirlpool WET3300SQ1 - AppliancePartsPros.com

Post the results.

Thanks, Simon.

I assume that the motor contacts 1M-2M are the red wires, if I am reading the wiring diagram correctly and that the motor must be running to check for a closed circuit?

I must be missing something. It read .02ohms. OL when not running. I first thought it was the Cycling Thermostat, so I changed it out.

The Thermal Limiter, is it normally open or closed?

If you read .02ohms when the motor is running the switch is OK.
All the thermostats and fuses in the dryer are NC.You should read continuity.

Thank you very much, Simon! I thought I had checked the Thermal Limiter before, but I must have done something wrong. I jumped the connectors and she heated right up. 5:00 on a Friday is a bad time to realize such a mistake.

Thanks again!
