Dryer wont start
Model Number: WED5840SW0 Brand: Whirlpool Age: 5 - 10 years
The dryer was in the middle of its "wrinkle shield" after the cycle had ended. I opened the door, took my clothes out and turned the timer off. When i went to use it again, it would not turn on. I have tested most of the common issues but still can not find the issue. I tested the different components with a multimeter to try and find where the issue is coming from.
-Start switch is good
-Thermal fuse is good
-Door switch is good
-Motor timer tests good (however, when i remove it there is a rattling noise when i shake it)
-Belt is good and attached properly
-Getting proper voltage at the outlet and at the dryer
Not sure where else to go from here? Is there a way to bypass the timer just to test if that's whats broken?
