IF IT IS A WHIRLPOOL DRYER, A FEW YEARS BACK THEY CHANGED THE IDLER PULLEY FROM A WHEEL DESIGN TO A TEFLON GLIDE. THIS DIDN'T WORK AND THEY HAVE GONE BACK TO THE PULLEY DESIGN. IC THE BELT BROKE OR BURNED IN TWO, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE BELT AND IDLER TOGETHER. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING TWO SCREWS UNDER THE LINT FILTER. LIFT OUP THE DRYER TOP AND REMOVE ONE SCREW FROM EACH FRONT CORNER HOLDING THE FRONT TO THE SIDES. THEN TILT THE FRONT OUT AND LIFT OFF OF THE BOTTOM SUPPORTS. NOW YOU HAVE ACCESS TO EVERYTHING.

REMOVE THE DRUM AND INSPECT THE IDLER. IT SETS BELOW THE MOTOR PULLEY AND KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT.

Stopped running. Can't start.


You probably have a clogged vent. If the moist air can't vent to outside your dry times would be much longer and the heat would get trapped in the dryer. This probably caused your thermal fuse to fail. Once that fails the dryer won't do anything. The good news is that it should be a fairly inexpensive repair.

Siemens Condensor Dryer E46-38. After a few


Mine is 4 years old and the pump went within 8 months! The dryer has had 6 new pumps in total! It was last fixed 6 months ago and now playing up again! I dont even constantly use my dryer! I am very disappointed with Siemens now, my last dryer lasted me 10 years and it was constantly on the go when my children were young! Here comes, tomorrow I have got to book another repair! No more Siemens for me.

Whirlpool Electric Dryer Won't Start


Your dryer has a non-resettable "thermal safety fuse" part number 3392519 which stops the machine dead when the temperature near the heater gets too high. Typically a restricted vent system causes this so you definitely want to check that before replacing it. A failed control thermostat can also cause this so check the operating temp too.
