Sounds like the belt has broken or come off. This is usually inexpensive to fix. You just need to get it out in the open to replace.

Hello beeps299,
If your Electric Dryer isn't doing anything at all, I would encourage you to do a few basic checks..
First off, are you sure that the circuit breaker feeding power to the dryer hasn't tripped?
If that's OK and you are sure you have power getting to the dryer then the next thing to check would be the door interlock switch. If that is not working properly when the door shuts, that disables most other functions. The switch could be defective, the wiring that goes to it may have gotten disconnected or damaged so that is where I would start to look first....
Hope that helps.
Other things that may impact the dryer are non-resettable fuses inside but I wouldn't go that route until you've checked the basics.. Let me know what happens after your initial checks are done..

Regards,
Rick

If you have verified the voltage at the wall receptacle and at the terminal block in the back of the dryer to be 220-240VAC, you need to check the Thermal Fuse inside the dryer to determine if it is still good. On your dryer, the thermal fuse is located behind the back panel on the blower fan housing. To access, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer before servicing. Dangerous voltages are still present inside the dryer with the unit turned off.
2. Remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer.
3. Remove the back panel by loosening all screws holding the panel in place.
4. The blower fan housing will be located on the lower left-hand side (as viewed from the rear).
5. Look for a small white plastic component on the housing. This is the Thermal Fuse.
6. Remove the wire leads and perform a resistance check. If good, the fuse will read about a short (0 ohms). If bad, it must be replaced.

Illustrations of your dryer are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look for item number 7 under the "Bulkhead" heading. Repairclinic.com and appliancepartspros.com are also excellent sources for finding parts.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Three things you can check the door switch is it clicking? The thermal fuse you want to make sure there is continuity or worse case would be your motor.

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer will not spin

Since your dryer is "new" it is under warranty. I will explain the possible reasons why it will not spin. Then you can decide whether to make the warranty call or not.

If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: Problem with Miele Touchtronic T 9800 Dryer end indicator

You've most likely got a bad control board. You'll have to install a new one which can be a bit expensive but cheaper than a new machine by far. I recommend getting a service tech to replace it for you however if your handy you could replace it yourself. Just get the new control board from an appliance parts store, they should be able to look up which board you need as long as you bring them the model number.

I installed a new pc board part number WE4M536. Now when I turn on the dryer, all the LED's just blink on & off. Do I need to program the new board? If so, how do I program it?


Yes it sound like it needs programed to your model number. Should have been instructions in the part box. There may be instructions inside the control panel. GE usually puts a sheet of paper with service info inside most dryer control panels. It usually consists of pressing 2 buttons at the same time to get in service mode and then turning the big knob to set it.

Awz8812 blows fuse


what 13 amp external fuse are you speaking about? if this is a power line fuse feeding the dryer then its way too small normally you use 2 30 amp fuses or a 30 amp tandem pole breaker to power the receptacle where the dryer plug plugs in

How do you check a thermal fuse on a Whirlpool duet dryer front loader?


These button thermal cutouts should pass an electrical current when cool. Therefore, use an ohm meter or a test lamp to check that. The meter should read zero or nearly zero, and the test lamp should light, to indicate continuity.

In your manual it says if the indicator light is on then the buzzer is on so to turn off the buzzer at the end of your program you would press the button again. Heres is that section from your manual

5. Select the buzzer (if desired)

^ Press the "Buzzer" button to have a

tone beep at the end of the program.

Indicator light:

on = buzzer selected

off = buzzer not selected

To adjust the buzzer volume:

- turn the dryer on

- close the door

- select a program

- if the indicator is lit, press the

"Buzzer" button so the indicator light

goes out.

^ Press and hold the "Buzzer" button

until its indicator is lit and you hear
the desired volume and tone.

Heat coil stays on hot after dryer is off


Possible that the program controller is faulty or the relay is stuck up and not releasing . If the power switch off releases the relay then the program controller is faulty as it is outputting to the relay to heat at all times.

Eurotech dryer. ON light flashes on and off, beeps once, and still flashes then nothing happens, dryer won't start. Help?


The problem is that you stopped a cycle before the program knob reached the "STOP" (12 o'clock on the knob). All you have to do is turn on the machine, turn the knob to STOP, and wait a couple of seconds. You'll hear a tone and the ON/OFF light will stop blinking. Turn the program knob to the cycle you want and- viola! you're good to go!

Malber Dryer won't start (sine-wave light flashing)


The dryer is easy: turn it on and turn the control to 0. It will beep. Then turn it to the desired program (20, 40, 60 minutes or a pre-programmed cycle), it will beep again and start. If there's a red light you have to empty the water tank at the front on the left. The washer is a normal washer. Just pick your program and press start (be patient as it takes a while to get cranking). Sometimes you have to really push the door closed very hard. Try and turn the control to 12 o'clock before setting it again.
