ticking you hear is the timer motor,drive motor is most likley geeting too hot.check vent ,dryer pushed back too far?hose kinked ?stopped up?too long?vent should be short,straight and of hard pipe.clean vent twice a year,heating element will love you.you will not love to replace it.
when you press the start button does it make a noise like emm like the motor is stuck?or all you can hear is the timer ticking?if it's the first it's the motor and you can try this,open the door,hold the door switch in with one hand and with the other spin the drum as someone else pushes in the start button,if it runs you have a bad motor,if you can't move the drum you could have somwthing stuck in the blower wheel but it will be the motor making the noise,if it's the timer you hear most likely the dryer needs to be cleaned out and also the vent line,then with a meter check the thermostats on the heater box 279816 is the part number you'll need if you already changed out the thermal fuse 3392519.if you don't find the block either in the metal duct that the lint filter slides into or in the vent line the thermostat will keep popping,it's a safety along with the thermal fuse when the dryer runs to hot one of them will pop as a safety because the dryer is running to hot usuaaly because the air isn't moving good from lint blocking somewhere.so unplug the dryer,you have the lint filter on top so all your parts are in the back,pull out the dryer,remove the vent line and the back panel,now remove the lint filter and the two phillips screws in front of it on the top panel,go in the back and on the left side remove the 4 screws that hold the metal duct in,clean out the duct and blow out and vac up any lint in the back,put it back together,now go to the right side,pull off at least one wire and check the top thermostat on the heater box,set you meter to say 20k ohms,you should see 1 on the meter,touch the leeds together,the 1 should be replaced with anything but 1,now touch the leeds to the part you're checking,if the 1 is there the part is bad or open,if any other reading the part is good or closed,also where you installed the thermal fuse you'll see the cycling thermostat next to it,pull it out and check the back of it,if you use cling free sheets it usually gets stuck on the back,clean it off with a steel brush or lightly sand it,if the cycling thermostat is bad the dryer can run hot also.now get a leaf blower and stick it in the vent line and blow it out to the outside,go outside first and make sure nothing is blocking the outside duct like a cage or screen,if so remove it first then blow it. go here to clean out the inside http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGIG8Wo5-N4 hope this helps,if you need anything else let me know and don't self clean your oven till after the holidays,been getting alot of calls for this,when self cleaning it can damage the oven and if you have to order a clck assy. or something you might not get it before thanksgiving,have a great holiday.
Dryer suddenly stop working when pushing start button (knob will make a humming or ticking kind of noise but won't turn on. I cleaned and check the outside exhaust and lint screen passage. Nothing is helping. help
Ticking sound is the timer running--so it is not the problem unless a contact has failed or a wire has come loose. Broken door switch, thermostat failed in open position, or clogged lint filter/exhaust vent/outlet would keep unit from running. If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not turning then the drum belt is broken.
