Good Morning Andri - I understand the motor will not start
on your dryer, however is there power to the unit? Is the house fuse blown or
has the circuit breaker tripped? May I please have the model and serial number?
You can typically locate the serial tag on the right or left edge on the side
of the door. With this information I can better address the issue. Thank you
and I look forward to your response.
Does it get hot when you start the dryer, and never gets hot again when its running? The solenoid wire might be opening due to heat, the solenoid is responsible for opening the gas valve, and booster valve. The wire is located in a round plastic sleeve with two electrical contacts sticking out.
You have a bad thermal fuse ( a small 1/4" wide by 1" long white piece , with 2 wires going to it , or a 2" long white oval piece with 2 wires , going to it also ) . Unable to tell which you have , and location , without complete model number . After replacing , check your vent hose for kink , and make sure the vent has good air flow to the outside .
Hi, Is this a gas dryer? There are no pilot lights. Remove the small plastic cap in the lower front corner and start the dryer. If the ignitor glows but goes out before the flame lights, you will need to change the coils on top of the gas valve. If the ignitor does not glow, you will need to test the fuse. Here is how to test the fuse on the more popular dryer:
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
If this is not your model, please get me a model # and I can look your up.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.
Hi, If this is a whirlpool model dryer, try this:
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the
dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located
on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity.
If it does not, you need to replace it. If this is another brand dryer, please let me know the model # so I can assist yyou further.
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses.
An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only
one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not
heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if
this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired
2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured
with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer
overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or
stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the
dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a
meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not
broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Hi, The first thing you want to check is that the dryer has power to it. Then check the non resetable fuse. On most models the fuse is located in back of the dryer behind the rear panel.
Once you remove the rear panel, you will see the fuse located on the blower housing (White in color). Take continuity on the fuse. If the fuse has continuity, it is ok. If you an not access the fuse from the back, remove the front lower panel and the fuse is again located on the blower housing.
Other possibilities are door switch, timier, & motor. The fuse is most common problem!!
If I can help further, please let me know.
Your dryer may have stopped itself if the motor overheated. Try it again, if still dead, recheck your fuses, (should be 2-30amp), replace both. Door switch may have failed or door is not making contact with switch.
For more help, locate your model no. and follow this link, it may provide you with some adiitional info. that I am unable to provide without the model no.
