Whirlpool dryer not heating GEQ9800PWZ
« on: September 14, 2012, 10:31:32 PM »
Hello everybody.
Have a Whirlpool dryer (model GEQ9800PWZ) that won't heat up. I have changed the Element, Thermal cut-offs (both were burnt out), and the thermal fuse. Even after changing all 4 pieces, the dryer still will not heat up.
The only thing that I can think of is maybe the Accutemp switch in the control panel? I'm stumped and could use some help. Thanks in advance and take care.

On the blower housing the control thermostat next to the fuse did you check that?

Have you verified proper voltage present at the outlet and terminal block?

I did check the voltage and it's good.
I completely forgot about the control tstat. Thanks JW.
