First check the dryer push button on switch; next, meter the start relay and, the centrifugal switch on the front of the motor (this switches the start motor winding on; then off as the run winding takes over

Magic chef dryer wont start, doing nothing, bypassed all fuses that i know of and door switch, replaced timer, ck voltage both ends of cord, and both sides of timer, what am i missing?


Thanks for using FixYa. As you have already checked everything else then the issue seems to be with the Thermal fuse going bad needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means it is bad and you need to replace it. If you have also checked this fuse already then the issue is with the control going bad and should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Hi I have a whirlpool gas dryer and it heats up when you 1st start it up but after a while it runs cool. Also the timer does not advance so it just runs aimlessly. I already cleaned the vent and lint chute...

The timer is the Principal initiator of the entire heating cycle. it authorizes the needed current for proper element functions. you have stated that the timer fails to advance, or rotate properly. this will cause inadequate heating, therefore, not allowing optimal dryer performance.

replacing the timer will fix this issue.

((I would also like to recommend replacing the running thermostat as well. this is good preventive maintenance. its located on the dryer blower housing or vent duct.))
