Whirlpool Gold Dryer

Had my jeans in dryer, dryer was working, opened the dryer door and pulled out the jeans. Jeans were still wet, threw them back in dryer, closed door and turned timer to 60 minutes to dry and pushed on button on the dryer. Dryer clicked on but does not start. Light is on in the dryer when you open door. When clicking on button you can hear that the dryer humming like its working but its not. Any idea??

You will need a volt Volt-Ohm (VOM) reader to fix this problem.
This doesn't rquire sound technical knowledge for this but you should be good at following some instructions.
This could be the effect of a number of problems. Here's a list of things to check and details on how to do it.

  • Fuse could be bad -- Check the fuse for a break inside. If it’s bad, replace it with an identical fuse.
  • Temperature switch could be bad -- Use VOM to check the switch. Set VOM to RX1, remove leads and touch the probes to the switch's terminals. The reading should be zero or infinity. Turn the switch, and the reading should change from zero to infinity or infinity to zero. If not, the switch is bad.
  • Thermostat could be bad -- Set the VOM to RX1, take a lead off one of the two outside terminals and press the probes to the two outside terminals. There should be a reading of zero. If not, it's bad.
  • Heating coils may be bad -- Set the VOM to RX1 and remove the leads from the coil. Press the probes to the terminals. If the reading is zero, the coil is bad.
  • Timer could be bad -- Disconnect the leads from the motor. Set the VOM to RX100. Clip the probes onto the leads. If the reading is infinity, the timer motor is bad.

Have heat & tumbling but will take 3 hrs to dry a load/ no jeans


Likely that your Dryer vent is clogged up. Especially if its long. Check that by hooking up a shopvac to one end with duct tape to seal any air leaks between the vent pipe and the vac hose. Turn it on and check the other end of the vent pipe for suction. If its faint then there may be a crapload of lint in there or a birds nest. Compressed air in the pipe with an agitating device may work or shopvac hose if run is short. Be prepared for a mess on either end.

Inside of dryer has turned blue from what i am thinking is my jeans. when i wasd whites they turn blue


Wow, where were the jeans made? I'd definately take them back. If any of your other clothes were ruined, I'd take them along. To avoid bad publicity, the store just might replace all for your silence.

Dryer Noise


You need to have you belt replaced. Over time the belt will strech.
this causes the dryer to still spin but the belt will sometimes loose the grasp of the drum and cause the belt to spin only.

This happens because over time with heavy loads of towles and jeans pull down on the drum as it is being loaded. Than when in cycle the jeans will drop from the top to the bottom pulling aginst it even more..

Whirlpool ultimate care II lost item in washer or dryer


It is most likely that they are in the dryer if you still have not found them. Please respond with the type of dryer that you have and I should be able to assist you in opening your machine for a good look. From what you have describe it sounds like you have an Inglis or speed queen dryer.
