    Is this on Auto dry or timed dry?

    Auto dry will click and not move or move very slowly.
    If your clothes are drying in under 1 hour you are OK.
    If It does not advance to the end cycle you may have a defective auto dry sensor.
    Reach inside the front panel and locate the auto dry sensor and clean it with rubbing alcohol and try it again.

Dryer working fine. Then go to use it and nothing. does not turn on. No noise. No thrown breaker. a little bit of noise(clicking) from dial (timer) when turned on. On some settings but not all.


Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

if there is no air coming out of your vent on back of dryer then it would be likely your motor has gone out.

Whirlpool dryer timer clicks but doesn't turn the dial.


Hi, It sounds like the timer is going bad. If you remove the rear panel and locate the two black leads that go to the timer motor, Check and see if it is getting 120V. If there is voltage to the timer motor and it isn't advacing, you need to replace the timer.
I hope this helps you. please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks

Dryer drys but the timer dial does not turn to stop automatic


Hi, You will need to change the timer. The timer motor has gone bad. You can test it by removing the back cover on the control panel and test the two wires going to the timer motor to see if it is getting 120V. If it is getting voltage, it should turn.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

I have a 5 year old Whirlpool Electric Dryer, Model #LER7648KT2. The Dryer won't start. I have checked the door switch, start button switch and visible thermo switches or thermostats with an ohm meter...


There are usually 2 thermal fuses in dryer circuits. One is on the heater housing and will blow in an overtemp condition around 310-350F.
The other is on the blower or exhaust housing and will blow around 200F
Make absolutely sure the 2nd one is continuous and not intermittently functional. This will definitely stop the motor from functioning

Below is a diagram for an older model (LER4634). Your dryer has some additional terminals probably because it has additional drying cycle options.

The diagram may be more readable when copied and pasted into a plain text editor such as Notepad or another editor with non-proportional fonts

Switch Terminals
|TM |TM |BK |BK |BK |
|WB |OR |BU |BU |R |
|-- |-- |V |-- |-- |
|---|---|---|---|---|
|O |X |O |X |X |Auto - High Heat
|O |X |X |X |X |Auto - Low Heat
|---|---|---|---|---|
|<> |<> |~ |X |O |Cool Down / Fluff
|O |X |O |O |O |End of Cycle
|---|---|---|---|---|
|X |O |O |X |X |Timed - High Heat
|X |O |X |X |X |Timed - Low Heat
|---|---|---|---|---|

Legend:
O = Open (Infinite Resistance)
X = Closed (Continuous)
<> = Either (But not Both)
~ = Doesn't Matter
NA = Not Applicable

Switch Terminals:

TM - Timer Motor (Different Models may use different colors)
WB - Black/White
OR - Orange
BK - Black
BU - Blue
V - Violet/Purple
R - Red

Example: For the Auto - High Heat Dry cycle, the following terminals are continuous:
Terminals
<TM - OR>
<BK - BU>
<BK - R>
(of course since BK-BU is continuous and BK-R is continuous, then BU-R is also continuous.

This should allow you to test at least some of the cycles your timer switch has

I have a general schematic in PDF for whirlpool for gas and electric, but did not see an option to add an attachment to this message.

Hope this helps or point you in the right direction.

Dryer won't start, Simpson Eziloader 4kg


Yes, the knobs don't like to be turned counterclockwise. Spin the knob clockwise to reinstall tightly, then move to set a dry time. Make sure half load button is pressed.
