Customer Question
My dryer will not...

My dryer will not turn on. It is model # M460G. The push button on the right side of the panel does not activate. I pulled the back panel and put a meter on the two blue wires running to the on/off and got no reading. I also tested the black and red wires running to the timer and got no reading. I tested the 220 at the plug and do have power there.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of the appliance? And has it done this before?

Whirlpool M460G. No, has not done this before.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it's minor yes. The dryer is over 10 years old, maybe 15, and probably not worth an extensive repair.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Am I on the right track to test whether or not there is power to the machine, or determine if it's just the on/off switch.
