Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

My whirpool dryer won't power on.

The interior light and the signal both work, but the dryer will not power on. What could cause this problem?

    I'm a greenhorn at appliances, but I'll have it checked out. I noticed the dryer was running without proper ventilation after electricians had been in the residence; so this could certainly be the problem. Thanks for your suggestion.

First check your power. The most common cause of this is the white plastic thermal fuse, located on the exit chute. These blow whenever air flow (plugged or restricted venting) is improper, or if the unit is running too hot. They also wear out from age. Hope this helps!

My whirpool dryer won't spin


It can be due to few reasons and so you can check on them.
1. Check the main power line, trace to the main control switch and its output. If not the switch is faulty.
2. Check the working of the motor, check the capacitor to the motor.
3. Check manually if the drive is free and is not jammed or struck up. If so you will need to overhaul the mechanism.
4. Check the door switch is the switch is faulty the motor will not be turned on.
