What to check when your dryer won't start-


The wall outlet 240 volts:
The first thing to check when your Whirlpool dryer is not starting is the wall outlet to make sure that the dryer is getting the proper voltages. On an electric dryer there should be 240 and 120 volts present at the terminal block.

A blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker are one of the major causes why the dryer won't start. To check the voltage on an electric dryer you will need to use a multimeter.

The wall outlet 120 volts:
A gas dryer connects to a 120 volts wall outlet, and it is very easy to check the outlet. Disconnect the dryer and connect a hair blower or any other small appliance on the outlet.

If they work, then the problem must be on the dryer. If the don't work, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. If the problem is bigger than that, have a license electrician check the house wiring. A bad wall outlet could be the reason why your Whirlpool dryer is not starting.

The thermal fuse:
The thermal fuse is use on an electric dryer as a safety devise to open the motor circuit if the operating thermostat fails to open at the preset temperature or if the motor draws too much amperage.

A blown thermal fuse could be the reason why your Whirlpool dryer is not starting. It is located behind the back panel on the dryer.

The door switch:
The door switch is another safety device use on the dryer. It is connected on the neutral line of the motor circuit. A door that is not closing properly or a bad door switch could be the reason why your Whirlpool dryer is not starting.

The push to start switch:
The push to start switch is use to start the motor. There are two types of switches. The older type switch is a solenoid operated door switch and the other one is a simple push to start switch.

A bad solenoid operated or regular push to start switch could be the cause why your Whirlpool dryer is not starting.

The timer:
The timer is the distribution center or the brain of the dryer. Inside of the timer is that the electricity gets routed to the different electrical parts in the dryer.

The timer has contact points, and the contact points wear or burn out depending on the amount of use. Contacts burnt inside of the timer, could prevent the dryer motor from starting..

The motor:
Also, the motor could be burnt bad. A motor that smells like rubber burning, makes growling noises, runs for a wile, the won't start until is cool down or a motor that runs fine, but the centrifugal switch is not making the right connections is a bad motor and must be replace.

So...as you could see, there are many parts that could be the reason why your Whirlpool dryer is not starting.

Indesit widl 102 extra rinse button always on!


Check that the button isn't stuck it if not remove top lid and check the PCB and see if the switch hasn't collapsed causing it to be on all the time. Also if you hold in the go button for about 5 seconds this resets the program try this.

Thanks J
