Check your home's fuse panel or reset the breaker (even if it looks like it's not tripped).

Check the door switch and make sure there is a click when you press it. If your model has a light inside, make sure it turns off when you press the door switch.

Check the belt to make sure it's not broken. Either turn the drum by hand from the inside, you should feel resistance from the motor or lift the cabinet top by removing the 2 screws under the lint trap (in the lint trap is on top) and pry the top forward and up.

If these don't work, can you provide the model number. I may be able to help you better.

Dryer will not start when I push the start button


You either have a defective start button switch or the motor is dead.

When I push the start button on my Kenmore 700 series dryer nothing happens. You can hear the timer clicking as if it is getting power, but the dryer doesn't come on. Could this be a defective timer?


Check the door saftey switch and the start button for continuety.
My bet is the door switch.
Then look at the timer if both those are good.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

The dryer will not start, you can hear timer.


your problem could be : Door switch, Motor, Thermal Fuse, Timer.

I would start with Door switch and Thermal Fuse.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then: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 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 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519
