Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.
So when you push start you don't hear the motor or anything come on? It's just completely dead? Except for the control panel some things like that light up correct?
Attachments are only available to registered users.
where would I buy it, how much should it cost?
Sorry about that, I had to step out, on your dryer it is inside not on the back, I just looked at the diagrams, it's on the blower assembly inside the dryer, what you need to do is take the bottom access panel off under the door in the front, there are three screws down real low to the floor you almost have to lay on the floor to look at them take them out and pull the panel off, the thermal fuse located on the blower assembly part number 59 on the diagram,

it seems to turn fine
yes, but it makes just one click when you try to start it , and a beep
nope, everything looks normal
ok, I hope I have the right info for diagnostic testing, try this.
ACTIVATING THE DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE
1. Be sure the dryer is in Standby Mode (plugged in and all
2. Press the following button sequence: More Time ? Less
Time ? More Time ? Less Time - all within 5 seconds.
3. All indicators on the console are illuminated with "88"
showing in the "Estimated Time Remaining" (two-digit)
display, if this test mode has been entered successfully.
let me know if it goes into diagnostic mode.
ok great, now we test the door switch operation.
Diagnostic: Door Switch
Opening the door should cause a beep tone and a number and
letter to be indicated in the two-digit display. Closing the door
firmly should cause a beep tone and the display to go blank or
3E comes up when you open the door then goes back to 88 when the door is closed
E3 error code is displayed:
If the E3 error code is displayed, there is a user interface or software
mismatch. It is also possible that a component on the console
electronics or the machine control electronics has failed. Check
functions of buttons before replacing the machine control
This gets tougher from here, I believe the control board has failed, I don't want heavy start putting parts in this is that we are not sure about, as far as running in the other tests these need to be done by a technician unfortunately, there are so many things in this machine could be the problem we could be on here for months trying to figure out, there's only so far I can go online with this, there are about 100 pages of technical information that would be impossible to go through all of them with you, I can't download the test procedures either whirlpool not allow that, what you can do however is look in the machine either in the bottom or under the top panel and there may be a technical sheet in there that will walk you through some other test you can do, that's about all I can do, sorry, well wishes though, thanks, Bryan
