Dryer wont start

I have a electric Kitchen Superba dryer, and when I select the time, I can hear the timer clicking, but the machine itself never starts. What should I start looking at?

If the dryer does not turn on at ALL (meaning the drum does not spin and it does not heat), the main culprit is the thermal fuse (also known as a thermister on some models). The thermal fuse acts as the name implies. It is a fuse. If it blows, it must be replaced. Now...with this said, this is not the ONLY thing that can cause your symptoms. However, it is the MOST common problem and the best place to start. If the thermal fuse blew, it is generally for a reason. More commonly the problem is caused by poor dryer ventilation, or something coming in contact with the terminals (such as coins). The following link will give you some good sound advice on how to troubleshoot the most common dryer problems:

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have questions. Please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located around the door opening, or along the back of the operator console) if you require further assistance. This will give me an idea of how your dryer is constructed. I hope this helps.

The fuse is mounted on the heater element. When it blows nothing in the heater or motor circuit works but the power to the timer is not interrupted therefore you can hear. Service manual

Maytag Performa Electric dryer. Went to put in load and start-would not turn on. Checked breaker first. Then listed and I could hear the timer clickin on the front panel.Front door panel was full of lint....


In-laws machine did exactly the same thing. Check the thermal fuse.

Turn off the breaker.
Pop the top open with a flat screwdriver (there are two clips at the front)
There are two white wires on the right-side of the burner element, this is the thermal fuse (wires are kinda awkward to remove)

I jumpered these to wires and it started right up.

The dryer wont turn itself off


Is the timer turning?

Actually, doesn't matter, the timer is the component that turns the dryer on and off. If the dryer won't turn off via the timer then the timer is bad!
(I'm assuming, opening the door turns the dryer off.)
Replace the timer to fix.

If this was helpful, please select YES to the first two RATINGS questions. Good Luck!
