Voltages At The Terminal Block
The first thing you need to check when your Whirlpool 29" electric dryer is not starting in any of the cycles that you try it on are the voltages at the dryer terminal block. Watch the video below to learn how to check the voltages.
After checking the voltages at the terminal block you need to learn how to take the dryer apart in order to be able to check & replace the parts in the dryer.
This is a safety device used to stop the motor from running if the door on the dryer is opened when the dryer is running in a drying cycle. If the dryer door is opened during a drying cycle the dryer will stop running and you need to close the door and press the start switch to get the dryer running again.
The power cord is use to transfer electricity from the wall outlet to the dryer terminal block. Loose connections on the terminal block could cause the wires on the cord to burn and break preventing the dryer from starting.
The Thermal Fuse
The thermal fuse is a safety device use to blow and stop the motor from running if the temperature inside of the dryer surpass the setting on the thermal fuse.
This switch is used to get the motor running after setting the timer in the any of the drying cycles. If this switch is bad, the dryer will not do anything until you replace it with a good working switch.
This is the brain of the dryer and it is in charge of sending electricity to each of the electrical parts in the dryer that need to be working during a drying cycle. The timer has many contacts that close and open during a drying cycle. Watch the timer video to see how to check and replace it.
The job of the motor is to turn the belt that turs the tumbler and to close the circuit of the heating element to produce the heat to dry the clothes. If the motor doesn’t run, the dryer will not do anything. Watch the video on how to check the motor to see how it is done.
