Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

If its a newer unit with electronics rather than the traditional
manual type the try this!

With an error code or fault code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!


If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!

If none of these tasks remedy the problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

Whirlpool dryer will not start the start buttton click when pressed and the timer works if i have the door open and press the start button there is no click so i figured it was not the door swich ...


The first thing to check on a electric dryer is the power.

I know It look like you have power but you have a 220V dryer and it need both sides of power to work.

If you can't ckeck for proper power at the outlet then please at least ckeck your breaker box and maker sure you turn both switches off and then back on to make sure that one site of the breaker did not trip. Then check your dryer to see if this did not solve your problem. ((((( I flip a breaker at least once a month for a customer and recive $60.00 for doing so :) ))))))

Ok if this did not solve your problem.

When you push the button for start do you here a hum noise ??? if so Most common problem would be the motor.

No hum.... Open dryer door and turn drum by hand and close door and retry dryer.

No Hum....

Now it get real fun !!! The start switch needs to be checked, Then the Thermal Fuse and the High limit thermostat.

In most cases this is going to be forign to you and you should call a tech for service.

Press start button and dryer will start and stop , if you press start button again nothing happens , if you unplug dryer and plug back in it will try to start again and stop


Howdy: The motor could be popping it's breaker once the start button is pushed. When unpluged the motor resets and the cycle starts over. But also the dryer thinks the element is too hot and resets the safety switch. The temp thermistor (overtemp sensor) could be clogged with lint or open circuit. Not easy to diagnost. Do you smell burnt wires or lint? Check to be sure the door is completely closed. It may think the door is open and not start. Doug

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.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Would first check the Breaker panel Breaker and see if it is tripped. Try resetting, if it trips out immediately would call an electrician.

try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
