Hello,
Did you turn the machine off for 5 minutes and then restart it to see if it resets the system?

My whirlpool estate dryer just stopped running about 5 min after I started it. Checked outlet that is fine. Door switch fine. Timer ticks.


Is the inside of the drum very hot. My guess is over limit thermostat is reporting overheat. Check for lint build up in hoses or even birds nests.

When dryer is started the timer can be heard and if the door switch is activated, the heating element will heat, but the drive motor does nothing. belt is ok


try holding the door button, have someone push the start button and you spin the tub at the same time. If it starts, it is most likely the start capacitor on the motor. If it does not start, look at door button, start switch/button, and lastly, the timer.

Whirlpool LEQ8000JQ - My timer ticks but the dryer will not run when start button is push.


More specifically, the timer can be heard running, starts and stops when door is closed/opened, so not likely to be the timer. You have a problem at the motor. A wire off a terminal, the switch on the motor, or the motor itself.

Try the door switch and see if it clicks to activate. Also, make sure that the dial is always turned clockwise so as to not strip the teeth. Could be the timer .

Yes it can at times. It has been my experience. This thing may be falling apart on the inside. Just replace it before it gives you further problem. There is more heat and resistance there at the contacts. While you are replacing it, check the other things as well. It seems like you have a good eye for this anyway.
