Dryer has power but wont start

Hello there and welcome to fixya
Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. To determine if the door switch has failed, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.) To determine if the thermal fuse has blown out,
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

My whirlpool cabrio dryer has an error code "PF" What does this mean?

The PF error code means power failure. IF the dryer was running and the power went off that display would show. I am assuming your power didtn go off yet the dryer trought it did, so the things to check is for a good tight connection on the power cord at the back of the dryer, a possible loose connection on the wall outlet where the cord plugs into ,or even a weak circuit breaker.

Good luck,

Went to push the dial in to start and it won't

first make sure you have power to the dryer.if you have power to the dryer than put your ear to the timer and see if you hear the timer running.if the timer is running than you nead to unplug the dryer and pull the dryer away from the wall so you can remove the vent hose and the back panal and the power cord look down and to the left and you will see a white plastic thermal fuse.remove the wires from the fuse and use a meter to see if the fuse is closed.if it is not replace the fuse and replace the back and power cord cover.plug the dryer in and check unit out.

Dryer won't start, is it the start relay switch or something more complicated

First verify 220 volts of power to the terminal where the cord attaches. If voltage is OK,remove the rear panel and locate the thermal fuse on the left of the exhaust vent. It is 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and white in color. Turn off the power to the dryer. Remove the wires from the fuse. Check the fuse with a volt/ohm meter set for ohms. No reading is a bad fuse. If you get a reading,check the door switch for continuity.
