Dryer not turning on or ticking, bad timer or something else?
I have a rather old Whirlpool Ultimate Care II dryer that has recently stopped working. I am not very handy with appliances, but I do notice that I no longer hear the ticking noise when adjusting the timer dial. So my common sense reaction is that the timer must have gone bad on the dryer. These are expensive to fix and with the age of the dryer I would likely be better off just getting something new. However is there anything else that could possibly cause this? Would any other thing going faulty impact the clicking noise you should hear on the timer? Such as a fuse, thermostat or even the general power supply from the outlet?
Is this a good question?
