The motor on my sons whirlpool dryer did not run at all so I replaced it with a new one. Now the new one only run about 20 sec. and then everything shuts down (no heat and motor stops). I have checked all the thermostates on the back and think that they are ok.
Could I have received a bad motor (faulty overload) or perhaps the main contoller has issues?
Thanks,
Jerry

We would really need a model number of the dryer to know for sure. Open the door of the dryer, and it should be where the dryer door closes on the dryer. Tom ********************************************

Jerry it could be the door switch, or it could be the timer. I would jump out the door switch and see if it runs, or you could check it for continuity if you have a ohm meter. There is also a thermal fuse, that could have gone out. It is in the back of the dryer, and is about an inch and a half long, by a half inch wide. Pull the wires off of it, and ohm it out.
