Unplug the unit,then carefully open the power cord connection access panel in the rear area of the dryer,sometimes the incoming power connections of one or more will burn off and disconnect themselves from the terminals,if its this problem,it sound like the "N"neutral center connection,because if either power phase wire burns off you may still have the timer or drum operate because each is connected to one hot leg

Whirlpool dryer, duet, model number GEW9200LW2 has no power all of

Consider finding someone good with a multimeter or ohm-meter ( that could be you, yourself).. Start with the socket the plug goes in to. See if it is live. Check next the 3 screw/nut bar inside the back of the machine where the cord attaches. If you've power to the machine, you'll need to disassemble the machine and check all the fuses and overheat thermostats, there may be as many as 7. Likely one has "popped", and need a replacement. You may also need to do a complete cleaning of the inside of the machine for lint.
Be blessed.

Replaced timer on dryer because would not shut off sometimes. dryer was working while I had it open I was vacuuming out lint around drum and switches. had door open and light was on suddenly light went out...

if its on a circuit breaker,just switch the breaker off,then back on,they can drop out ,but still show good
if this is not the case,check the incoming power block inside the dryer as a burned off neutral conductor can result in the same condition

My GGQ 9800 gas dryer won't start. It was working

Things to check first on a no start dryer.
Check for power at outlet.
Inspect power cord.
When you try to turn it on do you hear anything?
Check the door switch(does it click when pressed in?)
The next item to check and most likely replace on a completely dead dryer with power and a good door switch would be the thermal fuse located inside the cabinet.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else

I need to know what type of power cord to use with a Maytag sde2606ayw dryer. I have a dryer but no power cord. I have no idea about what to get and how to determine what to get. thanks, Patrick

Hello Patrick. dryers do not come with a cord because there are two very different and very common dryer sockets installed in homes in this country. look at your dryer socket, where you will be plugging in your new dryer. It is either a 3 hole or a 4 hole socket. IF it is a 3 hole socket then u will need a 3 hole plug. If it is a 4 hole socket you will need a 4 hole plug. The plugs are available at Sears, Home Depot, Lowes and they all come with instructions.

please rate my answer as very helpful. thanks Joe

My dryer is drawing 22 amps, the drum is turning fast. I am getting no heat for the clothes. The voltage is 240. I would like to see a manual so I can see if a belt is off or not. Thanks Tony

My guess is that the power socket in the wall for the dryer is incorrectly wired! 22 amps is about right for a functioning dryer, but not just the motor. The drum is turning, so the one belt is intact. First thing to check is the voltages at the socket. There should be 240 volts between the two slanted connections, and 120 volts between the center vertical connection (neutral/ground) and either slanted connection. I'm guessing that the 120 volt motor has 240 volts across it accounting for the fast drum speed. If the socket checks ok, check the wiring of the cord inside the dryer. The center wire of the cord should go to case ground. Hope the motor wasn't damaged.

Dead Dryer

I would say to replace the motor. The only thing I would suggest is see where you have power and where you do not have power. If it is plugged into the wall outlet then you should have power going everywhere including the motor. If the motor has power and will not start up then replace it. But I would check EVERYTHING out and make ksure that it is the problem and nothing else is the problem

My dryer does not work at all

Check the circuit breaker that feeds the dryer, even if it looks OK, turn it off and back on and check the dryer again.

Kenmore HE4 no power to control, no sound, but the drum light bulb on when door opened

Another post reported replacing the power cord. I am trying to determine if this is a factory defect. Check the power at the power cord connections inside the dryer. You could have lost power on one leg and the other 120 volt leg is letting the light work. Let me know what the model and serial number is.
