Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
The dryer has power...light comes on inside and I can hear timer running, however when you push the switch nothing happens at all.
We found that our problem was the thermal fuse. After ruling out all other issues, we came across a diagram with the thermal fuse mentioned. We replaced this along with cleaning all lint from inside and now the dryer works great. Thermal fuse cost = $15

The power on these dryers split, L 1 controls the timer and stuff while L 2 controls the motor heater etc. I would check your dryer belt, the ptc, push to start button and the motor. The ptc is a bridge until the motor rpms climb high enough to engage the two switches on the motor. One is for the heater and the other for the motor. So if your handy remove the console and disconnect one of the wires on the ptc and using gloves and insulated pliers tap the other contact on the switch like starting a car with a broken ignition and if that works replace the switch. If not turn the drum noting the resistance offered by the motor, pop the top to check also after checking the switch. Also check continuity on the ptc. If all items check out according to the wire schematic in the console suspect timer as having open contacts. The motor switches will have to be tested according to the test on the tech notes and a note is that the switches are integrated into the motor.
