The power appears to be working, and the lint trap is clean. But when I start the dryer, it doesn't work. All the power lights are on, but it doesn't start drying. The timer times down but nothing is happening!

We have a wgd5300sqo dryer. It won't start. Was working yesterday when we cleaned out the lint traps and everything. Worked for a bit. Now won't start again. Not sure where to go from here


Plugged in, door closed at the way? These things don't usually break without a warning rumble. If it appears to be ok, I would call APPLIANCE SERVICE GUY.

Does not Dry. Appears to have low air flow.


most of the problems associated with this problem are caused by lint being in vent tube to outside and restricting the air flow. clean out vent tube, from dryer to outside. this should help. repost if need be. good-day ! if you have too. clean out bottom of drier with a vacuum. around the fan and where theres lint trapped.

Model DLE5932W is prompting "check


Thank you for your question. This is a standard feature on almost all new dryers. There is only one filter in your dryer and that is the lint filter. The reason that the Check filter light appears either before your start the dryer or after it finishes is to remind you that you should in fact clean the filter.
Having a clean lint filter is very important, it decreases the amount of time it takes to dry clothes and it prevents lint from clogging the dryer vent.
If you are having a drying issue it is possible that you could have a plugged dryer vent. But if everything seems to be working correctly then this serves as a reminder only.

Lint filter light flashing...on off light flashing. Cleaned lint filter and checked vent. Vacumed and brushed out lint area. Will not turn on.


Had the same problem. I clean it the way you mention with the addtion of blowing compressed air through the vent pipe and it still failed to work. I unplugged the power for a couple of mintues, still did not work. I rotated the dial and pressed start at each position. In the "SHORT" position, it worked and subsequently worked in all positions there after.

Ge Adora Dryer, Worked great. Put load in, dryer 'hummed' drum did not spin. 'Clean Lint Trap' light was lit. Cleaned lint trap, still not working. Thought belt problem so unloaded dryer, drum did...


Sounds like your motor may be shot. Or possibly one of the pully's bearings are seized and is causing so much resistance the motor is unable to overcome it.
