Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...


The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Roper dryer will not start. Had just finished drying a load of clothes, put in the next load and it wouldn't start. The timer still ticks.


Maybe you door switch has broken?

The little tab should click.
Another possibility is dryer overheat due to lint buildup

8_17_2011_3_52_38_pm.jpgSee that white skinny thing mounted next to the air temp control thermostat? That thing will melt if too much junk gets into the lint filter or vent pipe. If it does it kills the door circuit and the dryer is dead in the water. More here

My whirlpool dryer wed9400sw2 is over a year old, but has stopped running. The last load was left damp. When I tried to restart the load, I pressed Power, Start. I hear a brief click from the start...

Hit start button but dryer will not start can hear the timer running


Open the dryer door and press the door switch , to make sure you hear a distinct " click " . If the door switch seems ok , then remove the rear dryer panel ( UNPLUG DRYER FIRST ) . On the blower housing , you will see a white 1" long piece ( thermal fuse ) with 2 wires plugged onto it . This is the piece you need to replace . #3392519 is the Whirlpool part number .

Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto


I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!

More than likely the belt for the drum or the door switch is faulty. What is the model of your whirpool?
