Whirlpool maintains a website that specializes in replacement parts for its products, including parts for Whirlpool dryers, at WhirlpoolPartsOnline.com. The website can be reached directly or through Whirlpool's main site by clicking on the Support and Service link, then clicking the Replacement Parts link.
WhirlpoolPartsOnline.com sells major dryer parts, such as drums, heating elements and dials, as well as small dryer parts, such as gaskets, belts and filters. Customers can search for specific parts by entering the part number in the search field in the upper right portion of the screen, then clicking the arrow next to the box to search. Customers who don't have a part number can enter the dryer model number, which is located inside the dryer's door along the rim, in the search field. They can then click the arrow next to the search field to display a list of all parts available for their specific dryer.
Whirlpool's website also has a live-chat feature to help customers troubleshoot problems and find the part they need. Alternatively, customers can call Whirlpool's support department at 1-877-486-2371 for parts questions. The company's phone and chat support departments are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. EST.
