Wont start, is there a fuse? and where is it


There's a thermal fuse located on the blower housing along with the cycling thermostat and is wired in series with the motor. This thermal fuse blows when the lint duct and vent are blocked or when the cycling thermostat is stuck closed or not cycling properly. Power to the motor is terminated and the dryer will not start once the thermal fuse blows and no dryer function works. Make sure the lint duct and vent are clear. Click on the link below for the detailed troubleshooting instructions but make sure first that the dryer is getting power.

My Whirlpool dryer(supreme) does not start. The timer switch, door switch, start switch can all be heard to electronically switch on and off when I turn the timer around and open and close the door....


the thermal fuse may be faulty. Remove the outer back of the dryer. the thermal fuse is located on the blower assy with 2 wires connected to it. It is white plastic. connect the wires together, then try to start the unit again. If the unit starts, clean the exhaust duct after replacing the thermal fuse.

Whirlpool Gold dryer has no power at all! Is there a fuse in the dryer it self? If so where would it be located?


Unplug the dryer.
Remove the rear panel.
The fuse is on the blower duct to the left of the exhaust vent.
It is about 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and white in color.
2 small wires are connected to it.
Check and clean your dryer ducts and connecting ducts and make sure there is good airflow or you will blow the new fuse.

Dryer has power but nothing happens when you press the start button.


First check the door switch to make sure it is clicking when depressed. Open door and depress the door switch with your finger, should hear a click. If you do not replace the door switch. Other problem will be the thermal fuse located on the blower housing. Small white plastic piece with 2 wires going to it. Hope this helps.

Dryer will not run


If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down

Whirlpool lgr7648pq0 gas dryer no longer heating; just blowing air; no exhaust issues;


More than likely you have a burned up heating element. There is a remote possibility that you have a blown circuit breaker or fuse in your house. The blower is wired for and only requires 120 volts but the heater element requires 220 volt service. Usually there are two circuit breakers in your house breaker or fuse panel that provide power for the dryer. One of them may be tripped/blown and the other one may be ok..still on...and providing power to the blower. So...check to make sure there is not a blown fuse or circuit breaker tripped. This is the easy solution if it applies but probably the heating element is bad and will need replacing.

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.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

My whirlpool duet dry isnt heating the laundry.


A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.


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.

Whirlpool LEQ9858PW0 Buzzes But Won't Start.


sounds as if wither you have a bad motor assy, or something haas fallen down into the "blower assy" preventing the motor form spinning.. in the back wher eyou tested your fuse, just to the left of that you see a large tubular housing (rounded on bottom", thats the cover for the blower , i believe its 3-4 screw holding it on, nad also the 2 screws visable when you remove the filter assy, the housing will pull off( you may need to wiggle it abit) and hopefully youll find a sock or something jammed in the blower assy
