Hi. Your symptoms are a very strong indicator of a failed rotating motor. If the drum cannot be rotated manually, or if it can be rotated, but with great resistance, this will confirm the problem area. Use my motor testing procedure to confirm once more with accuracy.


Locate your dryer motor. There will be two wire leads connected to the motor. Disconnect the motor's two wire leads from the wiring harness. Set your multimeter to the R x 1 setting. Touch each of the meter's probes to one terminal each. Your motor should show little resistance (a reading of zero, or close to zero).

Now check the ground connection. Place one probe on the bare metal housing of the motor. Place the other probe on each terminal, one at a time. You should not receive any reading on your meter from this test.

If your units motor fails either of these tests, you will have to replace it.

Additionally, if the motor passes the test, the culprit will more than likely be the door switch. i suspect a failed motor.


Concerning the wiring diagram for this unit:

It dose not exist in any data banks i have search through at this time. It may be possible to contact the manufacture for what you seek. I can only post exploded unit diagrams for your unit, at this time.

    • I would also advise to inspect the drive belt for signs of old age or stress. Replace if needed.


  • judirexw May 14, 2010

    the drum turns freely...and the belt is in great shape...he is checking the motor how you suggested now..I will let you know. If the motor was going out shouldn't it have given some notice?

  • Michael Masters

    It all depends on how it has failed. If it was windings failure, this is usually a silent progressive issue that will cause unexpected failure.

  • judirexw May 14, 2010

    Hi he checked and the motor is giving him a good signal but he believe the fuse there? is blown would that make it not work? Sorry to be so spacey trying to read your stuff to him and ask his questions of you and running back and forth..

  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    There are only two fail points in this situation. It Will be either the door switch or a failed rotating motor.

  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    Absolutely, if that fuse has failed, the motor circuit will not be energized correctly.

  • judirexw May 14, 2010

    well I am going to try to purchase the fuse from the dealer here in our town...I won't close this until I let you know if it worked ty so very much.

  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    A simple continuity test on the affected fuse will confirm failure at the fuse.

  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    Sure, no problem. I will be waiting for your response.

  • judirexw May 14, 2010

    Yes he tested that area of the fuse and there is no reading. He is a mechanic on oil rigs but this has him baffled. I will let you know after we get the fuse in. Hope that is what it is I don't want to replace the motor. have a nice evening.

  • judirexw May 14, 2010

    He wonders if you can wire around the fuse to be sure?

  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    Ok.

    Have a nice evening yourself, and i will be standing by for further discussion, if needed...


  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    I do not recommend that. This will cause an extreme reaction if there are circuit issues concerning the main control sector. Normally when a fuse burns out, it will be the result of age or preexisting issues within the door switch or control sector.

    It is possible to jump the fuse circuit, but i don't recommend it.


  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    Bad terminal junction points or loose power cord connections will blow fuses as well.

  • judirexw May 14, 2010

    Ok I will STRONGLY suggest he not do that...ty

  • Michael Masters
    Michael Masters May 14, 2010

    Ok.

  • judirexw May 15, 2010

Dryer is heating but not turning making noises from control switch even in off position


That's a plain jane timer on that dryer. The motor probably has a stripped gear in it. Seen it.
Nothing in the dryer would cause this timer to make noise UNLESS the RH terminal was arcing while in the heat mode of the timer setting. The result over time would be this:
themobilian_1961.jpg
I would say you is in need of a new timer. This timer has feature which advances the motor only when the heater is not on using this orange wire to feed back to the timer motor:
themobilian_1962.jpg
That is the middle wire on the high limit.
To replace the timer yank the knob straight off and remove the screws. Pay attention to how the wires connect. Pretty simple fix.

I have a manual and more service photos HERE

This is a Estate (Whirlpool) Dryer. My son turned


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.

I hope this helps

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Drum will not turn


YOUR BELT ON YOUR DRYER IS BROKEN. THAT IS WHY YOUR DRUM WON'T SPIN. YOU CAN BUY A NEW BELT FOR YOUR DRYER AT ANY PLACE THAT SELLS APPLIANCES.
