Question about Dryers
I must assume since you say, "Will not start", this implies you do not hear the motor and fan exhaust spin. Yet the timer continues to count down. This is most likely the "thermal fuse". It is easily accessed when the rear dryer cover is removed. Sears sells them for $14.45. Your parts manual will show where it is. Or go to Whirlpool site and view the manual there. But if it is the thermal fuse, which it seems certain it is, you need to solve why it blew. Which most likely is because the timer keeps advancing, putting you into the next cycle, turning on the heat, but with no manual push start on console button, the motor and fan do not come on, thus overheating the unit and burning the fuse. A new timer will cost about $85.00. Good luck.
