You most likely have a bad motor. Motors run around 100 dollars since the machine is 20 years old it would be a good idea to replace it with a new dryer. if i were you i would stick with a whirlpool product.

When start button pushed, motor tries to start turn, won't turn, shuts off after about 5 seconds. It's a whirlpool modle LGR7646eqo gas dryer, several years old.


The most probable solution is a new motor, but you may get lucky. I would first make sure that there isn.t something that fell down the filter hole and is caught in the blower blade. Possibly the rollers are jammed and won't let the drum go, but usually when it groans and won't go it is the motor

Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch? Thanks, Ernie C.


Hello birddog44,

Happy to help you.


You said, Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch?

If the washer works, I can only assume, you are talking about the dryer not starting when you press on the start button.

I believe that it just might be the start button.
Is it a gas or electric dryer?

You have the Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO

How old is this appliance?
The model # sounds like an older model.

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You,
huuum

Please give me a solved rating for this good advice
