DRYER WON'T RUN

OUR DRYER MYSTERIOUSLY QUIT WORKING THIS MORNING. WE'VE TRIED ALL CYCLES, AND NOTHING WORKS. TIMER STILL TICKS WHEN START BUTTON IS PUSHED. IT WORKED FINE UP UNTIL THIS POINT. I'VE CHECKED THE RECEPTACLE AND THE BREAKER, ALL OF WHICH ARE FINE.

    My LG dryer model number is LG DLE2512W. It power up alright but when I press the start button, it sounds click-click (like a relay sound) then nothing happen. The timer is ticking down and all the lighting are operating as normal but the motor does not run. I have checked all diagnosis tests as instructed in the service manual and everything seems ok.

    Please help if you know the problem is.
    Thanks

Just want to post the solution. After completely disassembled the dryer down to the motor, I did all component tests as instructed from the service manual and all passed. I narrow down to the motor and gave it a straight 110V external source and it did run ok. So, I checked the hardness terminal at the motor to see if it give the motor the power and it does not. I pulled out the terminal wire (brown) and plugged it back making sure that it has good contact and voila... the motor run as normal.

So the problem is: electrical wire contacts getting loose due to long time motor vibration.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer won't turn off.


Dryer Won't Stop Running
  • Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.

My dryer won't turn on (start button?) The timer works though. It quit working in the middle of a cycle and I'm pretty sure the heat was still working, it just stopped working.


Hello,

Sound`s like a broken drum belt. When the belt break`s on most kenmore/whirlpool dryer`s it prevent`s the unit from starting via a ``kill switch`` located under or next to the belt tensioner/idler pulley.

Since you`ve indicated the timer appear`s to advance/work, it is not the thermal fuse/cut-out.

The other possible fault is in the start button, but that is not very common.

I`d look at the belt. That`s what I`d check first. Hope that help`s.

Good luck and thank`s for visiting fixya.

I have a very old roper dryer (11 yrs), it quit mid cycle. It ticks when I set the timer but nothing happens. The on button quit along time ago but when you shut the door it would start. Today nothing...


You've got an open circuit somewhere in the loop betwixt the start button, the "safety" button actuated by the door, and the motor/heat coils. Trace out those circuits and you'll have that thing running in no time.

Stops during cycle


Maybe. Will the unit restart in the same position or do you have to move it? If it will work in the same position and all you're doing is waiting for a bit of cooldown...it could be a defective high limit switch that is resetting. If it will restart only after you move the timer, then change out the timer. This is a bit of a mystery since timers generally don't have 'dead spots'...they are designed differently than that.
