Title: Whirlpool WED5000DW2 dryer will spin, with heat, unless I open the door.
Post by: kanddmama on August 19, 2020, 12:10:08 PM
Relatively new dryer dryer that won't stop spinning unless I open the door.  It will continue to heat.  Any ideas?  I've checked the lint filter and vent.

If your dryer heats all the time it's usually because the heating element has broken but the broken wire is laying against the metal heater housing, completing the circuit.  Solution is to replace the heating element.

Could it also be the timer itself?

My guess is that it is the timer and not the heating coil. Have you tried to check it yet ?
