Normally the dryer would draw about 22 amps on each side of the power lead.

Before you run in there with a hammer, is there any way to simply turn off the buzzer alert? I have a different dryer, but I can disable the buzzer. Please check the operator's manual first. If you've gotten to the point of no return, you can disable the buzzer - carefully. Never leave any exposed wires dangling about.

SOURCE: whirlpool thin twin dryer starts and stops after 5 seconds

In the back of your thin twin dryer is a small white flat fuse attached with a screw, a clip, and two spade clips and wires. This is a thermal fuse and if tripped will cause your dryer to do nothing. Check with multimeter for continuity and replace if necessary. Also inside machine is a black tubular capacitor that will cause dryer to not run. Again, remove after properly discharging capacitor. Using multimeter check capacitor for continuity and potential. Obviously disconnect all power to machine before even thinking about repair. 240 volts will kill you dead.

The belt is broken and needs to be checked for any other part that has failed causing the belt to burn.

Check the lid switch, the machine will not spin or drain without the lid switch being activated. You should be able to see if the switch actuator is broken or missing, look in the slot where the lid's plunger drops into, if you can see the gray plastic actuator, set the machine in the spin cycle and try to depress the switch with a flat screwdriver, if it runs, the switch is cracked and needs replaced, if the actuator looks fine, and you can hear a distinct "click" when you press down on it, it may be a problem in the timer, but check the lid switch first, that's most likely the problem.

Does the dryer run at all?
Check the door switch. When you push and release it you should hear a click. If not, replace with a new switch.

After replacing the heating element in lte5243dq the thin twin dryer it still doesn't work

Did you check the thermostat and the high limit thermostat. If not check them for continuity with a volt meter to confirm if they are good or not. Continuity good, no continuity bad. I posted the diagram above so you can locate the pieces in the machine.

Whirlpool ite6234d thin twin could someone tell me in detail where the belt is located in the washer?


I can not find your model number that you posted.
I can tell you that all whirpool thin twins up to last year were direct drive with no belt except for the dryer section. Whirlpool stackers from the early eighties did have a washer belt if yours is this old replace the entire machine.

Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch? Thanks, Ernie C.


Hello birddog44,

Happy to help you.


You said, Our Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO will not start when pressing on the start button.Washer works.Could the problem be the starter button or the timer switch?

If the washer works, I can only assume, you are talking about the dryer not starting when you press on the start button.

I believe that it just might be the start button.
Is it a gas or electric dryer?

You have the Whirlpool Thin Twin model#LT7000XTWO

How old is this appliance?
The model # sounds like an older model.

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You,
huuum

Please give me a solved rating for this good advice
