Lift top up, it is hinged, and check if belt that is supposed to be around the drum and motor is broken. If it is broken it's a fairly easy fix.

When I push start nothing happens First it was


The symtom your describing is that of a worn or loose belt. There is a belt safety switch on the motor mount that is actuated by the travel of the idler arm. If the belt is worn stretched or broken the dryer will not start because the belt safety switch has actuated.

This is a matter of changing the dryer belt. In the process of the belt change check the drum felts front and rear for excessive wear, Worn drum felts / seals can losen the belt so the idler travels to tighten the loose belt and can cause the belt safety switch to be activated. .

BEFORE you go directly to the belt as the problem check the door switch. You should hear and audible CLICK as the door just opens or closes. No CLICK = no start. I.e bad door switch.

There are a few other possibilities but these are the 2 most common. If none of the above is related to your dryer or you need more assistance please respond with your dryers' make and model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Whirlpool model KUDSO1FL not starting cleaning


I fixed the problem by hitting Hi-Scrub then Economy Dry in sequence four times in a row. All of the lights came on, I am assuming to reset it the program, then went off and the start button was highlighted. I then pressed cancel and then selected the program that I wanted to wash with and pressed start. It worked like a charm.

I have a whirlpool quiet cycle III that won't start


Check the whirlpool web site. There is a link to see if yours is affected, click that and answer a couple of questions then if will ask for the serial number and then the model number, which are located on the inside wall of the washer. When you submit these numbers it will tell you if yours is recalled which is probably the cause of your problems as well. Since mine was doing something similar and it is one of the washers on recall for a bad motor.

Nothing happens when I push the start button on my Gas Dryer


Three things you can check the door switch is it clicking? The thermal fuse you want to make sure there is continuity or worse case would be your motor.

Dry cycle won't start


Commonproblems...blown house fuse, broken belt ( on some models )...door switch...*thermal fuse open (venting needs attention )...broken or burnt wire....timer....motor, in order from mostcommon to least common. * If you find a blown thermal fuse, always clean, change, adjust the ventingsystem and vent hood first, then it is often a good idea to replace the operatingthermostat at the same time. This is a picture of some modernthermal fuses.

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!
