You could change the timer...that sounds logical.

There is something causing the drive motor to bog down. This means the fan isnt spinning fast enough and the whole unit is overheating. Check for anything around the edges of the drum, coins keys etc. The squeal is the belt from the drum being stuck. See how hard it is to turn by hand.

Washer will not shut off.


sounds like the final phase is not being registered on the timer or the computer chip may need to have a service tech diagnose but it isn't a complex problem just an annoying one, the final phase is a cool down cycle and also you may need to see if you have the settings for cotton clothes, the dryer will tumble them so as not to let them wrinkle. hope this helps

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

Timers are not advancing through cycle. Dryer just continues to run. Thank you for your assistance. Chuck


Hi Chuck,
If the dryer is heating up and the timer will not advance in either time or automatic cycles, you will need to change the timer. If the timer advances in time cycle but not the auto cycle, you need to make sure it is heating properly. The timer only advances in the auto cycle after it reaches a certain temperature.
I hope this helps you at all. Please let me know if I can assist you further in this matter.

Thanks
Vic

Dryer stops but the timer continues on


Fixed! The "push to start" button was stuck. Must have been some dust. I pushed the knob a few times and that's all it took. Works fine now.

The problem is the motor switch . Try spinning the drum with the door switch held in and pressing the start button all at the same time .If the problem is lint in the switch that might be all you have to do . If that don't work you will need to replace the motor and no special tool required. I can walk you through it.
