Hello Moezz;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technical.

Unplug the dryer prior to the start of any work!

There are three areas that you need to check.

1.) Door Switch.

Open the dryer front door. In the upper left is a small pin that sticks out. Push the pin. Do you hear a click? If not you have a bad door switch. You need to remove the top cover to access the door switch. Having accessed the switch, remove the two contact wires. With a multi-meter set to the lowest ohms, put one meter lead on each contact, while pressing the switch in, the meter should read '0' if it is good. If you do not have a meter, join the two wire leads together and start the dryer. If it starts you have a bad switch.

2.) Poor Air Flow
If you do not have good air flow the dryer will not start. On the back of your dryer is a hot air distribution manifold. It is held on with several screws. Remove these screws. Inspect the lower connection and check the blower wheel for obstructions.

3.) Thermal cut-off fuse.
On your burner funnel there is a fuse. You will need to remove the dryer front panel to access. You need to Ohm it out as described above.

4.) Motor Pulley Start Switch.

On the end of your motor is a pulley. There is a lever arm switch that contacts the belt when you start the dryer. Move the lever arm. Do you hear a click? if not your have a bad starter switch.

It may be as simple as a thermal fuse. Some Whirlpool dryers have power for the motor going through the theraml fuse.
