Whirlpool dryer will not stay on, no heat, and timer acts weird

My Whirlpool dryer Ultimate Care II (model GEQ9858JQ0) will not stay on when the start button is pushed. Holding the start button down will keep it running, but it will not heat up and the timer counts down very quickly. Could the cold temperature (about 38-40F in the winter) in my basement have anything to do with it?

Thanks for any help

Whirlpool ultimate care ii dryer, only works when continuosly pressed the start button. What can be the problem. whirlpool ultimate care ii dryer model gew9878lw0


More likely than not either the start/run switch on your motor wen't bad, or the motor windings itself. Either way you need to replace the motor #279827 around $100 on up.
Not tough to get to if you know how to gain access to the cabinet, just remember that the blower wheel and motor threads going into the blower wheel are LEFT hand thread,
have fun, and best of luck,

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.

Appliance rewiring wiring WIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II


The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II cannot be outfitted for a standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Your dryer is a 220 VAC appliance. It needs to have it own dedicated 30 amp, 220 VAC circuit with the proper outlet and power cord installed. The dryer heating circuits and timer will not run on 115 VAC. I think you need to reconsider what you are about to do...
