Whirlpool Estate Dryer won't work

When you push the power button, there is a faint humming/ticking sound, but it doesn't start or turn. What could be the problem? I opened the dryer and the belt is still firm and secure.

The thermal fuse on the back is probably out the humming is from the timer tale off the back panel and look for somthing that looks like this and test it for ohms http://us.st12.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/yhst-39356578169075_2030_2317267 it should read 0

Whirlpool dryer won't start. replaced the door switch & the push button switch still won't start. the light works when door is closed. can hear timer ticking like always.


It sounds like you have lost a leg of power. Turn off both breakers, then back on. Then check the receptacle, the plug and then the wiring to the back of the dryer. This is likely where it is. There is a thermal fuse located under the top of the dryer. Easy to get to. Bypass it and if it works then, just replace it for about 15 dollars.
