Whirlpool senseon electric dryer won't start

Whirlpool senseon electric dryer (model #GEX9868-JQ0) would not start when start button was pressed. Opened back and removed wires from thermal fuse and shorted them together, dryer started fine. So I replaced both the thermal fuse and the thermistor. The dryer ran for two days and the same thing has occurred again, dryer won't start. Any suggestions on what to do next? The vent and inside of the dryer look pretty clean to me.
Thanks,

Chris

SOURCE: Dryer does not turn on

Sounds like the motor relay is not functioning. Sometimes the motor will work if the button is pushed but will stop when the button is released. This is caused by a loose wire at the motor or a bad motor relay.

SOURCE: Whirlpool LEQ9858PW0 Buzzes But Won't Start.

sounds as if wither you have a bad motor assy, or something haas fallen down into the "blower assy" preventing the motor form spinning.. in the back wher eyou tested your fuse, just to the left of that you see a large tubular housing (rounded on bottom", thats the cover for the blower , i believe its 3-4 screw holding it on, nad also the 2 screws visable when you remove the filter assy, the housing will pull off( you may need to wiggle it abit) and hopefully youll find a sock or something jammed in the blower assy

Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter your model number and it will show you all your parts, but I suggest you change your thermostats and basically have the dryer cleaned out of possible lint build up on the interior

IT SOUNDS TO ME AS IF YOU HAVE A BAD DOOR SWITCH. YOU CAN TRY JUMPING THE SWITCH OUT TEMPORARILY JUST TO SEE IF THE UNIT RUNS.

SOURCE: I have a gas whirpool senseon dryer model number

Hi, If the ignitor glows and then shuts off before you get a flame, then you will need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. This is the most common problem with the gas dryer not heating consistant. Make sure your venting to the outside is cleaned out. A plugged went causes the coils to go back quicker.
I hope this helps and please let me knw if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Whirlpool Senseon dryer control panel won't work


Could you please explain the problem in depth for me? Not sure what you mean by the control panel not working. Is it getting power? Do you have lights on inside the dryer (if it is equipped with it)?

There is usually a friction drive belt inside the unit that turns the drum. Check for a broaken belt or a defective drive motor. Usually it is just the belt.

Dryer will not start


Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged in?
Has a fuse blown, or has circuit break er tripped?
Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Was the START button firmly pressed?
Is a cycle selected?

Chances are you have tripped a thermal fuse and that needs replacement .. Once that opens ( electrically).. the heater/blower and tumbler will not cycle.. here is a link that wil help you identify the parts on your dryer that you may need.. Pay particular attention to any and all thermal sensors and cut off fuses ( Items 7,8 & 9 ) On Section 03 at this link...
http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

Chances are its the thermal fuse that failed and needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps..
