Whirpool duet dryer quit working

Hi. My dryer is a whirlpool duet. I have had it since December 2005. The lights on the panel work, but the drum does not turn and motor does not run. The sensor lights go from sensing to wet to all the way through the cycle, and the timer counts down..and the buzzer goes off saying it is done, but the drum does not turn and I do not notice any heat. What would cause this? I did notice that the drum seems awfully easy to turn compared to normal....
I did try unplugging the power to reset it and this made no difference. Thank you for any advise you might have.

    The machine quit in mid-cycle. The light panel works, but the drum does not spin, and when I turn it by hand it is very difficult.

My whirlpool duet electric dryer electrical systems and heat work fine, but drum won't turn and belt is in tact.


Check the motor capacitor,sometimes the capacitor could be faulty or the motor is faulty or check if the motor is receiving power,if it's receiving power try to replace the capacitor if the is any in the system,if still it's not working then the motor could be burnt.

Also check weather the timer is perfecty.

The dryer makes a new noise now when the drum is turning. It is a steady "tick -- tick -- tick -- tick --etc" which is laid over the normal sounds of the motor, the turning drum, and the...


You have done a good job of isolating the noise. Sounds like you will have to replace your drive motor. Very likely a mechanical problem in your motor, that is not going to fix itself. If you continue to run your dryer with the noise coming from your motor, you run the risk of the motor burning out electrically and causing a fire or a shock hazard. It is unlikely that this will happen, but it is possible and thereby not worth the risk of getting shocked or having a fire. The Whirlpool Duet Dryer is the best dryer built, so it is worth replacing the motor. Good luck, Appliance Specialists

Whirlpool duet dryer does not run


You did not say if the motor is running, I have to assume that it is not.
You can try this...
Turn off the power to the dryer, reach inside the drum and try to rotate the drum 1/4-1/2 turn. Then turn your power back on and push the start button.
Sometimes motors will get a dead zone in them and this will move it from the dead zone.
If that doesn't help then you need to check a little farther into why it is not working.
Could be a faulty motor, faulty start switch, broken belt, or maybe a faulty timer switch.

I hope this helps
