Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

My whirlpool gold quiet dry 1/ultimate care 2 dryer won't start when the start button is pressed. I hear ticking but nothing is running. When I wiggle the cycle selector/Timer control the dryer will engage. It might last a few minutes or might not. If the end of cycle signal is on it will just alarm after a few moments.

Sounds like the timer connections are bad inside the timer . When you wiggle it it makes a connection most likely need a new timer most of them can't be repaired anymore they are very expensive . Check all the wires going to the timer for being loose & not making a good connection before ording one . Hope this helps

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II: No heat

didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.7152136.jpg

Hi, there sould be a two piece door catch. One piece on the door and another on the front panel that the door closes to. Look at the piece on the door. You will probably find it is bad. You can buy just that piece and change it. I hope this helps. If I can assist you further please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

You are probably hearing the timer count down, which means the timer is working right. This sounds more like your start switch is out. If you email or callus with your model number, we'll be sure to get the right parts out to you rigth away so you can get this repaired. We look forward to hearing back from you soon. Hope this answers your question.

HI. The timer will be the culprit here. The timer motor is damaged, and the cogs seem to be worn, as well. I recommend replacing this failed timer mechanism. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II dryer. The dryer stopped working. It is getting electricity but still won't start. Any idea what the problem could be??

The first thing you need to check is if you actually have 240 Volts going into the dryer. Sometimes one half of the (dual) circuit breaker opens and only sends 120 Volts down the line. If you hear a buzzing sound when you press "start" but nothing happens, it could be a stuck motor. Or the motor could be running but the belt is broke. There are more possible scenarios, but try this first.

it could be your heating element but if you use dryer sheets take your lint trap out and see how well water will run thru it it may need to be washed in hot soapy water hope this helps

Dryer won't start

There is a good chance it's the 'thermal fuse'

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Quiet Dry I, LEQ9508PWO

I would suspect the timer is on it's way out the door. Do you have any areas the timer has dead spots? Check the exhaust for any plugging also.Is this only on a first time start up or is it after this dryer has been running? If after running it could be a high temp sensor, that by the time you are playing around with it, the temp has changed.

Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto

I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!
