Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2 dryer model number LEQ8800JQ worked fine this morning. I cleaned the lint trap. Then I put another load in,pushed the start button, nothing happened. I can hear the timer running. The inside drum light comes on when I open the door. I checked the breaker box, it is fine. I cannot find my manual. DO you have any suggestions?

    I a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care 2 AccuDry electric dryer with have same/similar problem. Dryer just stopped working - can hear timer ticking, but does not start. Per handyman, blown thermal fuse could be an issue (mine is 8 yrs old). In my case he checked and that was OK. He said it is timer problem, and part will take time to order.

I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!

    Lost ring inside washer/dryer


    I am betting it is in the dryer. Here is a video to show you how to open it. Please let me know if you find it in there. Look thru the COMPLETE duct work and blower. I doubt it is in the washer. If it is, it is under the agitator.

    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.
