This is slightly different than the original but it should work per the manufacturer. How can it be installed to work in my unit.

I have had my dryer a year and two months. It stopped running six months after I brought it, push to start button does not start it. Had it repaired was under warranty. Now it doing it again, won't start. Is there a recall on a part for whirlpool dryer?

I have an 11 year old Whirlpool Gold Gas Dryer w/accudry and a matching electric washer . The gas dryer would start and run and dry when you held the start button in ,but as soon as you release it it would shut off . I spoke to my local appliance shop trying to get the model and schematic for the set they sold me, to no avail. They told me it could only be the motor running in the primary windings ,so I replaced the motor (279827) and still have the same problem . Is there a relay that latches in the motor that might be bad ?? Does the replacement motor need to be rewired -The harness plugged right in ?

The dryer only works if I hold the pust to start switch in and if i release it the dryer stops. I propped a brick against the switch to keep it running and when I went back to check on the clothes approximately 45 min later the clothes were cold and wet. I saw other similar questions asked and they were told it was the dryer motor. If that's the case would it also affect the heat and clothes not dring? Thank you for your time. KJK

My dryer was working fine prior to not working. My daughter put a load in the dryer and push the button to start it and nothing happened. I felt heat when the selector was on one of the cycles, but the tub was not spinning. I'm able to hear the timer ticking and the dryer isn't equipped with a light. I'm wondering if the push to start button element went bad.
