Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool Englis dryer. It wont stay on and when I push the button it make a noise that is best described as a rubbing noise? I am not sure if its the idler pully or something fell in the lint trap. Where do you think we should start or have you come across this problem before and if so what was it?

Westinghouse dryer ld505e on/off button wont stay on when l push it


If it has dampness sensor strips inside the machine they may be coated with dryer sheet wax or some other mess. Clean them with windex and retry. As the clothes rub against these sensors the dampness causes the dryness board to keep the machine a going. if no dampness is detected the dryer shuts down. Supposely to save power.

Whirlpool Dryer Starts fine, but then stops and start button stops working


This is a sign of the Motor failing. The motor is over heating and then wont start again. When the start button is pushed, does it make a humming noise? If so replace drive motor and it will fix it all up!

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Humming noise, runs and stops thru out drying process.


You have a motor that has a thermal overload built into it. This is for the dryer's protection. My best guess is to replace the motor. But before you do all that, make sure the wiring is good from the receptacle to the controls in the back of the dryer. It could not have a good connection thus causing this noise.

Whirlpool gas dryer motor wont turn over


If the drum is not turning, then the belt may have broken and could be (because of the noise I think your describing, partially wrapped around the motor pulley.

Modern gas dryers do not have standing pilot lights. They are electronic ignition.

Chances are, you solve the belt problem, you'll solve the (I guess your having) heat problem.

Please respond with more detail of the problems you are having, and advise if the belt is broken.
