Whirlpool Dryer has power but will not start

The Dryer has power. The light comes on and I can hear the timer working.
I think the start switch might be bad. I think I need to either order part number 9902A or 694419, but I don't know which. I have the instructions manual that shows part number 3397618 REV. A -- I guess that's the part number for the instructions manual. Any chance you can figure out what might be the trouble? It's a Whirlpool Heavy Duty Super Capacity electric dryer.

Dryer won't start? It has power and I hear the timer clicking.


Sounds like a bad door switch ( the little button the door closes against). If that switch is bad, the dryer thinks the door is open even though the door is closed. Dryer will not start. thats the easiest place to start.

Dryer has no power will not turn on


Is door shut good ? Check door switch push it in and see if you can hear it click. Check power at outlet then where it goes into the dryer. Check start switch and voltage coming out of the timer. Check voltage to motor. If voltage to motor you will need a motor.

My estate gas dryer isn't working, i hear timer, but motor not turning


Door switch, broken belt maybe. The way it works if the fuse on back is ok and their are no obstructions which might cause a fire, the motor must be turning in order for the centrifugal switch inside it to allow power to the gas assembly. If that same fuse was blown however no power would get to the gas assembly but the dryer will still run. Based on that I would say you have a bad door switch. if not that then it is down to a bad motor or a bad timer. In the case of the timer it is a strong possibility the knob could be broken or the stem inside the timer itself is not advancing the cam and therefore the machine will not start. I saw that one just last week. Them timers are crappy on them machines.

DHDSr46ee1ww has new heating element and switch but will not start.


Have you checked the motor kill switch? Its located by the motor.When the belt comes off the idler pulley actuates this killing power to the machine. Sometimes the switch goes bad over time and needs to be changed. The part number is wd21x10261 and runs around $12

does the light close when the door is closed??? poosible that the door switch has gone bad. or a bad thermal fuse behind the unit is also a common culprit of this.. its a white thermostat on back of unit behind the panel (-----------------------) approx this long ad white,,

Hello...i have a whirlpool dryer ler7646eq1...the dryer will not start...i can hear some action near the switches but dryer will not start at all...any idea where to start....it is getting proper power...


Hi,
Here are somethings to check.
Make sure you have power and inspect power cord.
Check the door switch when you push in the door switch does it click? Try setting the timer to a different setting see if it works there. The next thing to check would be the thermal fuse but this would require opening up the cabinet.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?
