Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Replace the thermal fuse . If the lint screen is on top of the dryer , remove the back dryer panel and look for a 1 " long white piece with 2 wires going to it . Disconnect the power cord from the wall , and connect these 2 wires togather . Then plug the dryer back in and press start . If the dryer starts , replace this thermal fuse .
If the lint screen is by the dryer door , remove the front panel and the lint screen and the lint screen holder ( 2 screws ) and behind the holder , you will see this white piece . Replace it ( cant turn the dryer on without the front unless you disconnect the belt to test .
Always disconnect the power when working with electrical appliances .
ALSO , if you can use an ohm meter , you can check for an open thermal fuse , which would be the easiest way .
