Question about Dryers
The dryer worked this morning. Now you close the door and push the start button and absolutely nothing - noise or action. The power is on the breakers are fine.
I have a whirpool heavy duty dryer that is not working. When I push the button to start the dryer it only roars, and the drum will not move.

Sorry, no reset you can get to. There is one embedded in the main motor itself, that if the motor draws too much current, and/or gets too hot.
If you shut the machine off for a 24 hour period, then it will many times appear to run normally again, but it's the motor getting weak.
It's usually a slow progressive problem, and if you choose,you can, at least for the short period use the machine by either lightening the loads, or spread the loads over a longer period of time.
Eventually the motor will need to be replaced.

The capacitor is probably bad. The relay is still working that is why you can hear a click noise. It won't come on since the motor needs to have enough voltage from the capacitor to initialize. Good luck.
