    I apologize for the late response however I was not able to troubleshoot the problem until this weekend and it was a success! We were looking to buy a new dryer untill I received your e-mail suggestion, and it worked!!!!.Instead of spending $400.00 plus for a dryer I spent $17.41.

    I took my wife out for dinner with the savings and we both were extremely happy campers. Thanks to your suggestion.

    Sincerely,

    Xavier

Does it turn on and run with out the drum turning around. if so you most likely have a broken belt, if just the light comes on and nothing else happens your thermal fuse is most likely bad.

My dryer tumbler will not turn however the light turns on


You may have a broken belt.

Pop the top. you will see the belt immediately (or not) If you see it, (it is about 1/4 wide) is it tight or lose? If you dont see the belt, it has probably broken and fallen to the floor of the machine.

Remove the front to replace it.

Find the parts at a appliance parts store or visit repairclinic.com

I hope you find this answer to be of value

I have a whirpool heavy duty dryer that is not working. When I push the button to start the dryer it only roars, and the drum will not move.

CANT FIND MODEL OR SERIAL NUMBER ON DRYER


There should be a nameplate along the door opening. This is normally where Whirpool puts their information. Just open the door and look along the door or door frame opening. The nameplate data can also be located along the back of the operator console on some models. Let me know if you still can't find it. I hope this helps.

Chances are you have tripped a thermal fuse and that needs replacement .. Once that opens ( electrically).. the heater/blower and tumbler will not cycle.. here is a link that wil help you identify the parts on your dryer that you may need.. Pay particular attention to any and all thermal sensors and cut off fuses ( Items 7,8 & 9 ) On Section 03 at this link...

Chances are its the thermal fuse that failed and needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps..
