Top 5 Whirlpool Dryer Problems & Solutions

Even the best quality Whirlpool dryers have issues sometimes. Keep reading to learn about the top 5 problems that dryers experience and Whirlpool dryer service solutions.

1. Power Loss

First, test the outlet to see if it is working by plugging a small kitchen appliance or lamp into the outlet. You can conclude the outlet is not the issue if the appliance or lamp powers on. Another culprit is a door switch that breaks while in the “off” position, which will stop the dryer from moving altogether.

2. Failure To Heat Up

Do not assume the worst if your dryer suddenly fails to heat up. Some settings blow out cool rair rather than emitting heat. If you determine that you have selected the correct setting, the electronic ignition may be responsible. This repair requires gaining difficult access and using specialized tools, so you should always let a certified repair technician take care of it.

3. Making Loud Noises

A dryer that makes grinding or squealing noises may indicate a serious problem. Squealing sounds can be due to a loose drum belt that is sliding around the exterior of the drum. This issue requires replacement of the belt or idler pulley. Grinding noises can be caused by the drum support bearing or rollers that support the rear. It can also be due to worn drum supports or glides. A technician will need to replace the faulty parts.

4. Drum Will Not Spin

A faulty switch, belt or motor can prevent the drum in your dryer from spinning. An experienced repair technician is the only person who can handle this complicated Whirlpool dryer repair.

5. Clothes Remain Wet

The heating element in a clothes dryer is absolutely essential to its operation because it is responsible for heating the air inside of the drum. A burned-out heating element can make it impossible for your dryer to dry your clothes in a timely manner or at all. A repair technician should be the one to test this part, as the process is tricky. At this point, the technician is on hand to make the repair if the heating element is faulty.
