Question about Whirlpool Dryers
When I turn the timing knob on to start a load, I can here the timer ticking behind the back panel, but nothing happens. I have the back panel off and it looks like there are sensors that can possibly go bad. Can this be traced with a voltage meter? The drum doesn't turn. There was no smell as is if the belt broke. The breaker is fine. It's as though a fail safe sensor has gone bad and won't let the circuitry follow the proper course.
The most likely cause is the motor cutoff on the back of your dryer, on the blower housing. Looking at the dryer from the back, unplug the dryer, take the back cover off. This fuse is white and black it is on the botttom left side on the blower housing and usually has two small blue wires going to it. Again make sure dryer has no power going to it. pull one wire off and measure fuse. A good fuse will measure close to 0 ohms when good. If not it is bad. Replace fuse. These fuses sometimes fail on there own but usually it is b/c of a clogged vent and your dryer has overheated. make sure you clean your vent thoroughly with a vent cleaning brush all the way through. This should prevent the fuse from overheating again.
