Dryer won't start

You can hear the timer ticking, but it will not start up? Can it be the start switch or where would I begin trouble shooting this?

I would start simple, check your door switch for continuity and then check the start switch. If this is an electric dryer make sure you have a ull 220 volts to the dryer, anything less and only part of the machine (timer) will operate

Dryer won't start? It has power and I hear the timer clicking.


Sounds like a bad door switch ( the little button the door closes against). If that switch is bad, the dryer thinks the door is open even though the door is closed. Dryer will not start. thats the easiest place to start.

Dryer will not start but timer ticking


If the start button is an "ON - OFF" button (meaning, you can turn the dryer off manually instead of resetting timer in order to switch it off), try turning the dryer ON...then switch it back to "OFF".
Hopefully the dryer will continue, and the thermostat will kick in.

Will not start but its making a ticking sound


Electric or gas dryer?
Depending on where the ticking sound is coming from, without more specific information, many dryers use a timer within their dial for timed drying. If the switches are malfunctioning, the ticking of the "timer" can still continue.
If you can hear a whirring sound, which would be the motor, then it may be the drive belt. If this is the case, then the ticking of the timer may be more noticeable due to it being quieter without the spinning drum.

If you have a gas dryer and the ticking is from below, then it may be the ignitor that's faulty. However, that shouldn't cause your dryer not to turn on. It that case the dryer would spin, but not get warm.
With more information, I may be of better assistance.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer won't turn off.


Dryer Won't Stop Running
  • Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.

Timer ticks, but dryer does not run


Sounds like door switch. Open door and push on door switch. you should here a clicking noise. If you can open the top of the dryer. put the 2 wires together of the door switch. Make sure it is unplugged when doing this. Make sure you use electrical tape when you put it together. Temp fix. Get a new switch

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

drcool is right, we need to know what type of dryer, but is sounds like the centrifugal safty switch is bad and that is why it was not reamining running after you release the start button. Some dryers it is seperate from the motor, others it is in the motor, that is where I would start testing and see if that switch is bad. You really will need a wiring diagram to truly trouble shoot it, and most dryers have them somewhere inside the covers.
