Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Electrical cord connection touched back panel of dryer as I was pulling dryer out to clean. Connection sparked and now the dryer will not start. Would this most likely have shorted out the motor or just the switch and how can I tell? I can replace either of them myself, but need to know how to proceed. This is in a rental and I do not want to spend to have a repair professional come out.
Can anybody please advise. Thanks.

Hi thanks for the question. when you shorted that wire, it probably blew a fuse in the fuse box. check there first.

The burnt smell usually comes when the motor is going bad,
as the unit works I won't recommend you to use it for a long time and get the
motor checked-replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further
