Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
If the dryer still sounds normal and is in good condition, I would think it's worth fixing. These older Whirlpool units were built to last. Typically when the dryer stops heating on a gas unit, it's because the gas coils have gotten weak and need to be replaced, or a thermal fuse has failed because the vent through your house is getting clogged. It would probably cost about $150 to fix either issue if you called a technician out, but I'd expect another 5-10 years if you did fix it----unless you hear something else going out on the dryer like a lot of rumbling or squeaking etc...
