Hello Danyel;


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

You did not provide a model number. The model number is usually on a label see after you open the dryer door.

I would first start with the thermal fuse. It may be blown. But I do not know if you have one since I do not have a model number.

If you do not have a meter to check the thermal fuse you can use a 12 gauge wire and by-pass the fuse to see if the dryer will start. Remember to unplug the dryer first, and that the fuse is a safety device and must be replaced. Generally the following fuse is in the back of the dryer:

1) sounds like that accudry sensor needs checking. If the accudry sensor (the back box with the two silver trips in it under the lint filter) does not sense wet garment it coul cause the dry to start and then cut off or not start at all. did you try using a cycle that does not sense the load you are dying. 2) the mother board of the dry may need chnaging depening on your dryer. if your dryer is like the cabrio, duet or the senseon dryer then it could be a motherboard problem.

sounds like you may have a bad door switch(mach thinks door is open when it is not).open door and look on front panel that door pushes into.you should find a small button covered in a grey rubber boot.push on it and listen for a click,if u dont hear a click the switch is bad.if u do hear a click it could still be bad or you can have a open thermal fuse

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer will not spin

Since your dryer is "new" it is under warranty. I will explain the possible reasons why it will not spin. Then you can decide whether to make the warranty call or not.

If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle


Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol ABOVE the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the SANITIZE button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

Hi my whirlpool dryer will not run. All the lights come on, but it will not turn on


I had the exact same problem. lights would come on. press start and it would just beep 3 times and nothing else!! Well, there are TWO door latches. One on the top of the door and one on the bottom. Only one latch was closing. I had to push on the top and bottom of door to make it latch closed.....then it worked fine. :)

Samsung front loading washer temperature sensor problem


It may not be your temperature sensor or thermistor. If you have a tE error code on your Samsung washing machine, first check the wiring. My Samsung washer had three visits by the repair tech. and new parts ordered again and again. I looked on a British web site and two people said that it turned out to be wiring broken in several places. Sure enough, I found a broken wire. Technician didn't look for that. Hope it's as easy for you.
