Michael Pryor I got a dryer model number.WED7500VW, is not turning on door switch onewire Was burn....


The door switch activates when the dryer door is closed. On most dryers, the door switch makes an audible clicking sound when it activates. To determine if the door switch is working, try starting your dryer and then listen for the "click." If the door switch makes a clicking sound, it is probably not defective. If you don't hear a click, use a multimeter to use the door switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model 74812200. It is no longer heating up. When I turn it on, I hear a clicking sound for about 30 seconds then it goes off. Then about a minute later I hear the clicking sound...


You would not hear the click if the ignitor was bad. It won't click until the flame sensor get heated up by the ignitor. So that tells me the thermal fuse ain't melted. I would say them coils on the gas valve are the problem. themobilian_2943.jpg

Dryer isn't drying anymore


check the ignitor first it should make a clicking noise within 15 seconds upon turning on the dryer. If no clicking sound is hear you have a bad ignitor for your burner to ignite it

No heat


If you have a gas dryer check the ignition ignitor. When you turn on the dryer you should hear a clicking sound within 15 seconds. That sound is the ignitor clicking to throw a spark to the burner to ignite. If that sound is not hearf the ignitor is at fault

Wont turn on, makes click sound when you push the start button. The click sound is near the motor.


The clicking sound your hearing is in the gas valve and or ignitor that are located near your dryers motor. It sounds as if you have a problem with the motor or motor switch itself. This can be repaired but the repair most often requires the replacement of the motor itself.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Heat kick on then off


these are heat cycles,
the click you are hearing is the thermostat turning the element on or off, most dryers try to acheive a temp of 160 - 180 degrees, when reached the element shuts off for a bit to cool down and not scorch your clothes
you do not have to worry about this
