Dryer won't start. No error codes. Replaced thermal fuse, door switch.

History

My dryer won't start. The red lights work and light inside work, so it has power. I replaced the thermal fuse and door switch. No luck. The panel lights work normally. After I select the dryer setting and start it, it beeps, but doesn't start. I don't here any noises after the beep, nor do I see the drum move. I do hear a click coming from the area of the PC board as it beeps. Also, the fan spins freely, so there doesn't appear to be anything obstructing it. The drum turns by hand. The belt is attached and in good working order. I checked the PC board. No obvious signs of being burnt. I suspect the motor is bad, but don't want to replace it if that isn't the problem. Is there way to further diagnose the dryer or the motor specifically? Thank you.

i have the same problem; i ran an extension cord to another outlet and still the same problem. any other advise? Kevin - did you ever fix the dryer? was it the motor?

Phil van Haaster,

I have the same problem but only 3 of my panel lights work. Sometimes if I hold the start button long enough I can get it to start, but not any more. Outlet works, light comes on inside and beeps when I try to start it on those 3 settings but nothing happens. Is it the control panel?!

Tpitzer,

Use a multimeter to test the wall plug. You should have 2 polls giving 110-120 volts each and a ground. It sounds like you may only have one side hot and the other not.

Check the rear groin panel for spider, chigger, common in groin. Is good then deal. Is OK. Yes?

I have the same problem. And replaced the door switch like I was told. Nothing wrong with the outlet because I have an old dryer plugged in and using it for now. This thing is making me crazy trying to figure it out. I really don't want to trash it if it is something simple. Has anyone figured it out yet?
