This sounds like a problem with the thermal fuse blown which is wired in series with the motor. Power to the motor is terminated when the thermal fuse blows and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this kind of Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite dryer problem.

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer model ggw9200lw1. when i press the start button it clicks once but wont run.


First, check the door switch. Push and release it by hand and you should hear a click. If no sound, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is ok, press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly.

Dryer wont start.


Some start buttons do not click. But it sounds like maybe the door switch.

Wont start


Is the motor running but the tub not spinning? You can tell by feeling for air movement out the exhaust after you start it or by listening to the dryer (put your ear against it and listen for a humming sound).

If motor is running your belt is broken and will have to be replaced.

Drier button does not work when push it to start machine


You need to check the dryer door switch. I may be bad. If the timer is clicking it is probably working fine. Also you need to check that the dryer is getting power to the unit. Check your breakers and also pull the unit out and look at the dryer cord. Check the terminals for a short or burnt looking one. Once you have established you have power going to the unit, you can find where the comunication stops within it.

Fuse


Your belt is broken, the click that you hear is a centrifugal switch that shunts your start button, so we know the motor is running. Check your belt.
