Question about Whirlpool LGQ9858P Gas Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer not turning on when pushing button.

Just did a load, now when I push the button, I hear a click but motor does not turn on. There is power since light comes on. Is there a reset button or maybe a bad sensor? Worked 10 mins ago when a load finished.

    Dryer 4 years old. No temp problems, went through full cycle. Opened back, no loose wires. When I press the start button, I hear it engage. When I move dial to off, it disengages... same if I unplug unit. Trip seems to be working fine. Is there a way to bypass on button to see if it's faulty? Has 3 wires, 2 blue and one pink/black. Both blues run to a white tab near the exhaust, unsure where pink/black run, goes to a nest and must reconnect to another wire.

Try Unplugging It For A Minute Maybe You Had To Much In It And The Motor May Have Gotten To Hot And Tripped Itself. If This Doesn't Help You'll Need To Take It Apart And Look Around For A loose Connection Or A Trip Switch. Maybe Even The Belt Broke If Its An Older Model.

On my whirlpool duet dryer the power turns on to my dryer but when u pushes the start button u just hear a click and nothing else happens..


the dryer belt may be broken, when you push the button you hear the motor running. you can either try and fix it your self or call a authorized dealer or service center, look in your area using the internet, yelp, call information, yellow pages, white pages, look on the machine for service calls, call sears, home depot, lowels, applicance service center, dial 0 ask for whirlpool costomer service, or service and repair shops.

My Estate dryer won't turn on. I push the on


See if the lever on the door switch clicks. You cannot hear a click or the lever is missing that could be the problem. On the backsides of the dryer is a dust cover. Remove it and look for reasons why the duct fuse might melt and kill power to the door switch.

See the lever there? That must be in for the door circuit to activate the motor.

Maytag Gas Dryer has power (light is on), but when I push the Start Button, nothing happens. The Dryer is a Maytag MGD5570, just under 4 years old. I checked the Thermal Fuse with a continuity tester and...


I had the same problem. Here's a quick test you need to do. It will take two individuals (unless you're extremely talented) Open the dryer door and push in the door switch... and hold it in. Have the other person push on (and hold) the start button on the console. At that same time everyone is pushing the switches take a free hand and reach into the dryer and try to spin it. Sometimes just a little push (assistance) is all it takes and..... bingo the dryer starts up! If that's the case... your motor is on its way out or it's gone. Usually due to the bearings on the motor being badly worn.

My dryer is getting electrical power. But when I turn the power knob onto ON, nothing happens.


it may be the door switch, but if you hear a click when you push the start button then the motor reset button tripped. You should be able to set the dryer on its front side and see the motor reset buttons as there are two one trips one resets, push the reset in it should click and then plug it in and see if that helped. Hope this helps if not feel free to ask more info as I am more then willing to help Tim
