    I have a similar problem. I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care ii electric dryer. The light is on inside, but when we press start. Nothing happens. Any suggestions? Do you think it is one of the fuses? I have tried checking it with a mutlimeter, but I am not sure I know how to check it.

    I went to use my GE DRSR483GD2WW dryer today and it will buzz and sound like a bad starter. It buzzes but does not ignite and tumble. Does anyone have any clues? My wife and I both swear we didn't use it last but I did go down this morning and it sounded like an electrical humming coming from the dryer and I thought it was the buzzer and it was running. I turned the buzzer off and went back upstairs. Then tonight went to use it and got this problem.

    I have the same problem. Amana Heavy Duty NED5400TQ front loader. Door is closed, but when hit start, nothing. Is pluged in, circuit braker good, but you can see the light in the dryer, shinning from the back of the dryer. And when pressing the start button, it sounds and feels normal like before. Please help, thank you.

    Our dryer was drying and then when we went in to start it again it wouldn't start. The door is shutting tight. We don't know what else to check?

I dont know what brand it is, so will generalize this if I can.  If you have no start condition, it could be a number of things.  First, be sure door is closed, and door switch is good.  Check wires going to switch as well to be sure they havent fallen off.  There are a number of fuses depending on the type and make of the unit.  Whirlpool (Kenmore, Roper, Inglis, etc) use 2 fuses, one on the element and one in the blower housing.  GE uses usually 1 thermofuse, top right corner (again, depending on make and model), and Maytags use one usually mounted around the element area.  If you can get me some more information, I can narrow it down a little.   Jim

Drier will not shut off . Drier goes from heat fo cool and run all the time, will shut off if door is opened

Most dryers (and washers) have a control knob with settings and also have a timer that ticks like a clock.
I'd say your "clock-timer" is stuck and need replacement.
Most usually, you will have to replace the whole "control" assembly to get a new timer-clock.
God bless your efforts.

Dryer will not start

If you manually turn on timer can you hear the faint ticking? #1Verify breaker is not tripped. #2 Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. On many makes there are 2 blue wires that connect to a white and black "fuse" towards the bottom of the unit. Unplug both wires and electical tape them together. plug in dryer and start the cycle. If it works, unplug and go buy the fuse. Clean lint out of air system from dryer to lint screen through exhaust.

Model number 110-85866-400. Will not turn on

unplug dryer,you have to take bottom panel off,take out lint filter and then remove the duct that that lint filter goes into,you'll see it on left side when you remove the bottom panel,if it died you could have blown the thermal fuse part number 3392519,you will find this on the right top side of the blower wheel housing it's white and has two wires going to it,pull one wire off and check it with a meter,also go outside and check the flapper were it vents outside,that could be blocked,i blow the vent line out with a leaf blower if it's a long run.if you're having lint problems that should take care of it,also if you have a shop vac,put it on blow and blow off the motor,and you can blow all the dust that' in the back forward so you don't have to remove the drum.hope this helps

Not getting fuel to carberator and fuse #2 problem.

#2 has nothing to do with engine. It's the courtesy lights and such. #9 is the fuel pump. You'll have to see if you have power to your fuel pump. If it's working you should hear it cut in for a few seconds when you first turn your key to the "on" position. If you hear nothing, it's either burnt out again, or the power wire to it is faulty.

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.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Roper Drier no heat and continuous run for two hours

Your drier heating elements operates on 220 voltage, the drum and clock operate on 110, so you either have a blown fuse in one side of the fuse box ( easy fix )some time the circuit breaker will just need to be reset by turning it off and back on, or your heating elemant has opened up and will be more expences to fix, or it could just be a wire end has burned off. unplug plug from outlet remove back from drier and have a look see, and if bychance you have forgotten to clean your link trap if could be a high temp safety that has open and sometimes can be reset by pushing the reset button, all this is inside the back of the drier, if after that it may be time to call your friendly repair shop

No power no lights good fuse...

Try a different power outlet? Possible shut down of DC supply due to short circuit can be heard if listen close at back of TV on plug in or power up with remote for a quick squeel then ticking sound or tick tick tick and nothing.
