Try opening the door, spin the drum by hand, then qi\uickly close& press start. If this works, then the capacitor has failed. About $30, easy to replace.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks.
If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the
wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed
component. The switch is 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.
Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed.
If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause
heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the
thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape
or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged
with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's
plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Hello Suznpete, welcome to FixYa. I will start by saying your post indicates it is a Westinghouse dryer, however if you could post the complete model number (the one provided doesn't appear to be complete) and the approximate age I can speak directly about possible causes/remedies instead of generalizing. I'll need to clarify the model number before detailing much of course. I'll need to watch for your reply before moving forward. Thank you for choosing FixYa. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Westinghouse dryer LD505E is to be mounted on a brick wall ,what size rawlplugs & screws are needed .I bought the wall bracket mounting kit


that unit does not have wall mounting information its user manual
or a wall mount bracket supplied with that dryer
its a 5KG dryer by the looks of it

thats means its load a with 5kgs of wet clothes on the floor
suggest to me its no meant to be wall mounted
http://laundry.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/whitewestinghouse/whitewestinghouse_dryer.html?p=7

wall mount kit might be say suit most dryers
you have to go by common sense
use bigger mountings and fixings that you think it needs
has to hold up on the wall
this much weight
the all up wet weight of clothes
the dryer dry weight empty
and steady any vibration with the rotation on full load


into wood walls depends on the thickness of wood

if into dry wall ...need to hit the wall studs centre
I would not try it

if going into brick concrete ...hammer drill in and . ranset bolts

Replacing belt on westinghouse 5kg LD505E dryer


Check YouTube - there are tons of videos on replacing the belt in dryers. You have to dismantle the frame in order to wrap the belt around the drum. Sheet metal screws hold dryers together - it is a fairly simple job, once you are acquainted with the general procedure.

My Westinghouse LD505e suddenly stopped working during a drying cycle and it won't start. Would anyone be kind enough to guess what could be the problem and advise a solution. It's 4years old


Probably a blown fuse due to a heater element problem or maybe a bearing problem. I recently worked on one and did a movie which shows the fuse location and all:

Westinghouse dryer ld505e on/off button wont stay on when l push it


If it has dampness sensor strips inside the machine they may be coated with dryer sheet wax or some other mess. Clean them with windex and retry. As the clothes rub against these sensors the dampness causes the dryness board to keep the machine a going. if no dampness is detected the dryer shuts down. Supposely to save power.
