Whirlpool LHE 5700 NO HEAT
« on: April 10, 2013, 12:48:18 PM »
Hi I have a Whirlpool Dryer model LHE 5700. It worked fine until last night and it stopped heating. The heating elements are not broken. The blower is blowing. My dryer is old It doesn't have a safety cut off thermostat. Unless I don't know where to look. But looking online they all seem to be at the top left side of the heating element housing. There is a high temp limit thermostat on the bottom left side of the heating element housing and then 2 adjustable thermostats near the blower. I dont have a ohm meter to be able to check the dryer out. I am at a loss. Please help me I cant afford a new dryer right now. The hose isn't clogged. I removed the hose to see if it would heat without it. Still nothing

Check for 220 at cord first. Them remove power andcheck the thermostats.The lower thermostat is a limit, no cut off or fuses on that one.The other thermostat is the cycling thermostat. ohm them out, it's a real simple unit.

It was the outlet. I was only getting 30 to 40 on the right side. and 122 on the left. Checked the outlet and it was so corroded that it was almost broken on one side. Replaced the outlet and she works like a charm. Thank you so much.
