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 and 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.

Won't come on.


Sounds like there may be wiring problems where your dryer connects, causing your breakers to trip. I'm no expert but that's definently my first guess

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer model ggw9200lw1. when i press the start button it clicks once but wont run.


First, check the door switch. Push and release it by hand and you should hear a click. If no sound, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is ok, press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II dryer. The dryer stopped working. It is getting electricity but still won't start. Any idea what the problem could be??


The first thing you need to check is if you actually have 240 Volts going into the dryer. Sometimes one half of the (dual) circuit breaker opens and only sends 120 Volts down the line. If you hear a buzzing sound when you press "start" but nothing happens, it could be a stuck motor. Or the motor could be running but the belt is broke. There are more possible scenarios, but try this first.

This is a symptom of a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and power to the motor is cut when it blows then the motor cannot run and no dryer function works.

The dryer will not operate. you can press the buttons , all the lights come on, but as soon as you press start you hear a clicking sound and then nothing happens. I seems the dryer is on but nothing is...


unplug dryer, remove back panel, look for a white part with 2 connectors on the blower housing and remove one, using a continuity or ohm meter put across the leads and if you hear no sound or see no reading in meter replace that part. is the thermal fuse. this is the most common problem for that failure.

Dryer doesn't start or blow air, how can I test parts to determine what needs replaced?


Hi there

Have a look around the motor for a yellow or silver tube like object with wires attached to one end .

if you see one of these "be very Carefull if you are not confident working around live electricity get a man in to do it"

start the dryer and then physically give the drum a push if it starts to spin what you require will be the start capacitor plenty of places online to buy spare from and easy to fit.

Dryer won't start when pushing the button it clicks


Could be a broken belt if you hear motor, also can be defective door switch. you can try pushing door switch with finger and press button If motor does not make a sound and pressing door switch does nothing you will need a volt meter and test for power if you hear moter then its broken belt or jambed drum. Try and manually move drum

Dryer will not start, timer sounds like it is running


Possibly a door switch, or starting switch near timer assembly. it could also be a bad breaker, dryers have a double breaker, even if you are getting electricity to part of your dryer 1 bad breaker might not let the rest of the dryer work. With electrical experiance,and elect. tools, have some one test breakers and plug voltage.
