1. Does the dryer light come on when you open the door? If so, it's likely the belt is broken. You will need to replace the belt.

2. No dryer light? it's likely then that the thermal fuse is blown. They are located in different places on different dryers. On Maytag and many Whirlpool dryers, it is located under the top, right next to the heating element with two white wires leading to it. You can test the fuse by bypassing it TEMPORARILY. If you connect the two wires together or make a jumper for them, (always shut the dryer circuit breaker off FIRST before attempting this) and the dryer magically comes alive (after you turn the circuit breaker back on) then you know what's wrong. Just changing the fuse is often not enough - you should find out why your dryer overheated. (poor airflow - blocked duct, etc)

Water building up during the dry cycle and clothes getting wetter


1) Make sure wash cycle is 100% finished (sometimes dryer will start before - usu on synthetic cycle & allows water to continue flowing in)

2) Manually start the dry cycle after you ensure wash cycle is finished and push in the wash cycle button.

Hope that helps! If not, you may need a new control module (I did - hope you don't!)

This may be a thermal overload switch which is probably located underneath the top of the dryer. When you find it, bypass it to see if that is the problem. If so, replace it for about 10-12 dollars. Check the breakers first, then the connections in the back to see if they are secure.

Dry cycle


Try setting the washer dial to the stop setting at the end of setting number 4 then set the dryer timer and turn on the machine.  This works for mine to get the dryer to run by itself.  It should begin about 30 seconds later, when the door locks.  Hope this helps.

Why wont my machine start drying?


I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!
