Question about Dryers
Hi I have a whirlpool gold dryer it just stopped working thing is all the panel lights work it even flashes when door is open when I push start timer starts but the dryer doesn't no turning not hear no sounds tried unpluggi g it and circut breaker I can't afford a techright now
There are a couple of things that may have happened here. If the lights and control panels, and the timer are all working, but the drum isn't turning, you might have broken the drum belt. This is a fairly easy repair (if you have experience with tools and taking things apart). Open the dryer up (assuming it's not under any kind of warranty), and find the *remnants* of the belt. Take the numbers off of it, order a new one, and install it - it just goes around the motor pulley and the drum. Put it back together, and it should be fixed.
Now, if there is also no heat, then there is a possibility you have burned a fuse. There should be a couple of fuses behind the control panel - I would check those.
Lastly (and probably the worst case scenario) the drive motor may have burned out. In this case, you might have to get a tech out there to take a look at it and replace.

Welcome to FixYa
hold the AIR DRY/RINSE ONLY button to reset the control, if you have already
tried this and it is possible that the door was opened while in cycle then the
first thing that should be checked is the door switch/lock assembly. You can
take a hair dryer and try to blow air on that, if the problem returns then
replacing the door switch/lock assembly is recommended repair. Please get back
to me if you have any other questions.
