Wife went to dry clothes. Panel lit up. Set load to Normal. When pushing start it acted as it was going to start but immediately died. Lights stopped at "sensing". Have checked door switch, thermal fuse, thermistor, fuse etc, all seem to be OK. Any suggestions?

Our Dryer wouldn't start, you'd press a button & I'd here a click but then nothing on the display it would show that the dryer is running , even though it wasn't .On an ohms meter it showed there was no power getting to the motor. so I replaced the circuit board ,after some research told me that had to be the problem. any ideas on what else it could be , the thermal fuse checks out fine, could the thermistor be causing this. thanks Dave

checked the thermister part number 8577274 with a multimeter on 200ohms and got an infinity reading. I assume the part is bad. Is that correct?

If the thermistor is bad, can you bypass it by putting the two wires that go to it together (securely) and bypassing it? And, if so, and the dryer, still, does not run, what would you check next?

Hi I'm trying to track a problem on a whirlpool Cabrio dryer. The problem is a lot of clothes come out extremly wrinkled. We just replaced the thermal fuse cause it was missing/bypassed. We purchased this unit used and werent aware of the thermal fuse missing till we started having problems. After installing the new thermal fuse it worked fine for a week then it blew. I'm thinking it is the thermister , allowing the dryer to run too hot, causing the fuse to blow. I removed the thermister and it reads 15k ohms. It says it should read 10k , so is this my problem? Thanks Mike

My dryer will not start. We replaced the on/off switch cause it didn't seem to be connecting and sticking. Timer works like it want to start but does not actually start what else could it be?

I have a gas dryer, which I cleaned inside and out to increase the airflow. When i set the dryer to the highest temperature, the igniter glows and the flame starts for a couple minutes and reaches 168 degrees, then shuts off. At 114 degrees the igniter starts, then at 108 degrees the gas ignites until it reaches 168 degrees. This was monitored at the rear exhaust with a simple thermometer. It continues this cycle throughout the drying process. Is this related to the thermistor? Everything appears to check out fine.

Hello, My question is, when I start the machine all is normal. But after a few seconds, the flame goes out. It turns the flame back on again, but for less time. After a few cycles the flame will not catch. What is affected ?
