Question about Whirlpool ET8CHEXSQ Dryer

1 Answer

Whirlpool Dryer I got a dryer for Christmas in 2007 and we had no problems until we moved into a new home in Oct. 2008. The dryer will click when I select a length of time and when I push the start button it will pop, then when I open the door it will click like it is turning off, but the motor and the drum never start at all. I have checked the following: cleaned out the bottom, cleaned out the back, changed the thermal fuse, tightened all connections, the breaker is correct voltage and the plug works fine, the belt on the motor is barely worn. Any suggestions on what may have happened?

    we bought it used from a dealer with no waranty and all we did when we moved is unplug it then we plugged it in when we got into the new house. It hasn't run at all since we put it in this house, but we have had the breaker box and the outlet looked at and they are both fine.I have turned the breaker off and back on several times with the same result.



    The model number is Whirlpool LE6800XTW0

Try turning off the breaker(s), then back on. It may have tripped and not showing as tripped. You say you have replaced the thermal switch, have you checked the hi limit switch. Your may have one on there separate. I am curious, has the dryer run at all since you have moved in your new home. It is possible, if you had to put on a new pigtail, that you have gotten the wiring wrong. Check that. If it has been working since you moved in, then contact the dealer since it still should be under warranty. Let me know what you find out. Good luck.

    This sounds more like the start switch to me each time I read the problem since you have already done the obvious and easiest to fix. Call a local repairman out to check it out.

I think your old plug is probably 120 and you may need to convert to 220. It's probably the wiring is probably 220 in new home? Or maybe not grounded properly. This is a job for a professional. If you think you know what you doing, we try to save a few dollars by doing it ourselves. But sometimes it is time to call the experts, before we cause more damage and cost us more money. Good luck!

My whirlpool top load sweats will drying, and it take a long time dry.


Your problem is in the dryer vent not the dryer. If it cant move the moisture it is pulling out of the clothes to a new location (basically the vent is clogged), it will just create humidity on the dryer itself and once the vent is cleared it should resolve your problem. Check both the vent coming out of the dryer and the vent where it comes out of your home either can be blocked somewhere in the line. You can buy a dryer vent cleaning brush kit from most home improvement stores if needed and I have had people use a lef blower on the vent line in the wall of your home since it has more pressure then the dryer fan to force out any lint build-up.

Dryer beeping after being on about 5 minutes


If you purchased them in Feb of this year then the units are still under a full warranty. Maybe I am over simlifying this but you should call for service.

Dryer will not start


Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks and clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406107
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Whirlpool duet dryer will not start. Panel lights come on as usual and when press start machine clicks and will not start. Light on wet sensor lights and no drying action begins.


press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly. This is a secret test and reset for your dryers control, so please keep this between us. The whirlpool people would be heart broke if they see this posted on the web ;-) . If your dryer will still not start after this test, you may need a new control. If you need a part let me know and I can ship it right to you. Good luck and I hope this will fixYa and saves you the $400.00 it would cost for whirlpool to send a certified tech to come to your home.

Dryer not drying clothes


Make sure that the flex hose going out from the dryer is not blocked. You should check it from both the back of the dryer and all the way to wear it vents outside. It could also be the thermostat, which is cheaper to replace than buying a new dryer.
