When I push the start button on my Kenmore 700 series dryer nothing happens. You can hear the timer clicking as if it is getting power, but the dryer doesn't come on. Could this be a defective timer?


Check the door saftey switch and the start button for continuety.
My bet is the door switch.
Then look at the timer if both those are good.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

I push the start button and nothing happens


Turn your power off and reach inside the drum and rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn, turn the power back on and try pushing the start button again.
Sometimes motors get dead spots in them and this helps to move it from the dead spot.
If that doesn't solve the problem try to listen very closely and see if you can hear the motor running...if it is then the problem is a broken belt.
Otherwise could be your timer switch faulty, or the start switch faulty.
I hope this helps

I have a whirlpool gold ultimate care II heavy duty gas dryer. When the dial is set on any setting you can hear the motor ticking. When I push the start button I get nothing. Any ideas???


You are probably hearing the timer count down, which means the timer is working right. This sounds more like your start switch is out. If you email or callus with your model number, we'll be sure to get the right parts out to you rigth away so you can get this repaired. We look forward to hearing back from you soon. Hope this answers your question.

Whirlpool dryer


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.

Kenmore Elite Dryer HE4 Quietpak 9, has 4 dim lights showing on the console display but won't start or respond, I have bought brand new and replaced all sensors. Replaced heating element. looked like the original heating element. Pack came with new sensors. I did not test with a multimeter. My plan is to measure continuity on all the old sensors. Then do the same on the new ones. The electronic board looks good, does not smell burnt or old burnt smell. I cleaned all the lint in this dryer but unfortunately the motor has some lint in it which I surfaced cleaned. The only way to get to the motor is to remove the drum. So far I have soent $40 on all parts and a week works of troubleshooting as a novice. On the main display read, it shows two small dim lot red lines, wish I could send you a picture. Also when the fuse is off I plugged in the dryer and all the lights turned on normal. All looked in working condition except of course it did not turn on, I have not replaced the switch and with the new fuse, by the way, I bought 5 to 6 of the same fuses thinking I was burning them, that's why I bought a multimeter to retest them to see if they are not burnt. When I plug in the fuse it goes black but the door light works. I have held down the start button, nothing, held down the cancel button, nothing, I have done the crazy push all buttons even shook the machine a bit just in case something was causing whatever myth I was conjuring. I am about to give up and just buy a used one from someone else but I think I can fix this, it should be very simple to fix.
