If drum turns and keeps turning when you give it a push by hand, it indicates the motor capacitor - usually mounted on the motor and is a cheap part easy to fit

On my whirlpool duet dryer the power turns on to my dryer but when u pushes the start button u just hear a click and nothing else happens..


the dryer belt may be broken, when you push the button you hear the motor running. you can either try and fix it your self or call a authorized dealer or service center, look in your area using the internet, yelp, call information, yellow pages, white pages, look on the machine for service calls, call sears, home depot, lowels, applicance service center, dial 0 ask for whirlpool costomer service, or service and repair shops.

Frigidaire electric dryer #134745400 -electronic control board just stopped working. no lights, no power at all. checked and getting power to plugin. getting power through pigtail, lent filter clean.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

I have a affinity dryer that just humms when I turn it on. I have power 220 at recpt. no code reading?


Sounds like the motor could be locked up, Is the dryer turning if not belt broke , Check belt, take the front access plate where the motor is located and turn it on check to see if the shaft of the motor is turning at normal speed and again check the belt, with power off and belt is not broken by hand turn the drum to make sure nothing is blocking it from spinning freely. if that is free and clear than my bet is on the motor itself as it sounds like it is in locked rotor.
Cause's of locked rotor
Motor seen its better days
if equipped the start/run capacitor could be out
Hope this helps.

Drum doesnt turn when turned on, can hear power goes to motor. Hve checked the belt and it is attached and can be maually turned


SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A PULLY ON THE MOTOR SLIPPING IF YOU CAN HEAR THE MOTOR RUNNING, BUT THE DRUM DOES NOT TURN. IF NOT THE PULLY, THEN THE BELT MAY BE SLIPPING IN THE PULLY, BUT THE PULLY IS TURNING. THEN A NEW BELT IS NEEDED. IN EITHER CASE YOU WILL NEED TO ACCESS THE MOTOR AREA TO SEE WHATS HAPPENING. MOTOR COULD BE NOT RUNNING, EVEN THOUGH YOU HEAR A HUM IN IT. BUT, MOTORS NORMALLY RUN LONGER THEN THE LIFE OF THE DRYER.

try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
