    what is the make and model of your dryer?
    The fuse or fuses are normally readily accessible often theough an inspection plate that you can unscrew
    Is there anything in the wall socket that needs to be reset?

  • paultheguru Sep 05, 2007

    what I did was to connect across the thermal fuse momentarily with the machine on. It started immediately so I confirmed the problem. I then replaced the old fuse with a new one. Only do this yourself if you know what you are doing. Also the thermal fuse is there to prevent your clothes overheating and igniting so depending on the age of your machine it may be indicative of another problem.

How do you dry clothes in this machine please

A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).

Fex831 dryer timer doesn't advance...what will i need to fix this myself?

Good Morning Patrick, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Let's try resetting your dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn your appliance on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, and based on the symptoms you are describing, you may have a communication error with the control board, the timer itself may not be operating correctly or a potential wiring failure. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, you may wish to reach out to an appliance expert who is best equipped to pinpoint the exact problem, which can often save you funds and a headache.

Dryer not drying

Hello Tony Palow - Have you recently cleaned the ducting? Confirm that it doesn't have any debris or build up. Try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and if the unit still does not dry, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further since it could be any one of several underlying causes. Most than likely the dryer has a faulty control board, heating element, blower assembly, thermostat, sensor or damaged cord.

My Whirlpool Dryer (model no. LGR4634EQO) is no longer heating, or getting hot at all. How can I troubleshoot it??


suggestions about things they can do to troubleshoot commonproblems.

    • 1 Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen ifthe clothes are not dry after a drying cycle completes. Remove the lint fromthe lint screen and replace the screen. The dryer ought to dry more efficientlyafter the lint screen is cleaned.
    • 2 Open your home's breaker box if the dryer is notturning on or no indicator lights are visible on the front panel. If theswitches for the dryer in the breaker box are flipped to "Off," flipthe switches over to the "On" position.
    • 3 Remove some of the clothing in the dryer or drysmaller loads if you notice that the clothing is wrinkled when you finishdrying a load. Larger loads cause the clothing to wrap around one another whendrying, increasing the likelihood of wrinkles.
    • 4
Pull the dryer unit away from the wall and checkon the position and arrangement of the exhaust vent. An exhaust vent that ispinched between the wall and the appliance or an exhaust vent that is kinkedcan't allow air to flow through it properly, making it difficult for theappliance to dry properly.
    • 5
Make sure the door is closed if the dryerdoes notrun. Also check to make sure that you hold in the "Start" button forat least a second. Pressing the button for less than a second may not give thethe dryer enough time to recognize the button has been pressed and that itshould start.

Thanks for using fixya.

Sometimes, a Whirlpool dryer may not function as you'd like.Although specific details vary by model, the company offers several generalguidelines to troubleshooting your Whirlpool dryer and getting it back intoworking order.

Verify that thedryer is connected to its power source if it won't turn on. Whirlpool alsosuggests checking your home's circuit breaker, as the high power needs of thedryer may have tripped the circuit. If the circuit has been tripped, reset itby flipping it back into the "On" position. Push the door of the dryer. Whirlpool designed its appliances to not turn onif the dryer isn't secured and notes that the dryer door may not be fullyclosed even if it appears shut. Push firmly at the top and bottom of the door,as some Whirlpool models have two latches. Press the "Start" button again. Whirlpool reports that some modelsrequire you to press and hold the button for five seconds to fully start themachine. Depending on the model, the button may be labeled "Hold toStart," "Start" or "Push to Start." Check that the dryer's settings knob is set to an actual drying mode and notsimply "Air" or "Tumble." On most Whirlpool models, themanufacturer states that the settings knob should be set to"Accudry," "Timed Dry" or "Automatic Dry." Clean the lint trap, typically located at the top of the dryer and removedby pulling its plastic handle. Over time, lint and dust builds up here. Thethicker the trapped layer of lint, the slower your dryer performance. Whirlpoolrecommends removing built up lint after every dryer load. Remove some of the wet clothes inside the dryer if it's taking an unusuallylong time to dry your clothes. Whirlpool warns that placing too much clothinginside the dryer reduces hot air circulation, which also reduces dryingcapabilities. Recommended dryer load s vary, with compact Whirlpool modelsholding approximately 3.4 cubic feet while extra large Whirlpool dryers holdingmore than 7 cubic feet.

One of the 2 breakers for dryer flipped off,

This is a strange situation.

I would normally expect a electric dryer to rujn on 220 volts which would be provided through a tandem breaker, When one flips off, the other must flip off, they are fastened to gether.

I would expect a gas dryer to operate on 110 volts and the poser to come throlugh one breaker. The motor would run but that is not to say the gas will burn to make the heat.

I suppose yoj could have a 220 Volt Gas drier, but there would be little benefit based on the added expense of the motor.

If you are certain you have two breakers for your dryer, it might be time to have a electrician take a look-see

Dryer threw the breaker

I recommend resetting the breaker and using the dryer. It may not happen again. There are several reasons why the breaker could kick. One has nothing to do with your machine but simply that there was a temporary drop in voltage from the power company.
