My dryer has power, led lights on, you hear a click when the start button is pressed. Lights indicate unit is drying, but nothing's happening.

Hello and thanks for using this service! If you are a subscription customer I would like to personally thank you and welcome you back! I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly, I do not know whether you are male/female, age or skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our Subscription Customers!


That is either a broken belt, tripped belt switch or tripped thermal limit. You need to remove the back of the unit and check the belt and the belt switch and reset it if it is tripped. It is a slide switch that has to be reset if the belt breaks or sometimes they can trip. Check that out first and see.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service.
