Default gas dryer shuts off after a few seconds
Model Number: WGD5300VW0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Whirlpool WGD5300VW0 shuts off after a few seconds.There is noise from the control area that sounds like something is turning inside. If I unplug it and plug it back in, I can restart it with the same results. I have removed the back, and cleaned everything out. I haven't checked the thermal fuse for continuity yet.

I am by no means experienced since I am fixing my own dryer, but from a lot of the help sites and videos it seems like the Gas Coils go bad. Try searching for that and see if your symptoms line up. I just changed mine and the issue still remains though, so I posted hoping for some more insight.

Seems like most people on the web change their gas coils and they are back in business though.

Good Luck

Faulty gas coils cannot cause the dryer drive motor to shut off. When it shuts off, can you restart it right away by pushing the start button? Turn the buzzer on. When dryer shuts off, does the buzzer sound?

The buzzer doesn't sound when it shuts off. I have to unplug it in order to start it again.

You say the dryer shuts off. It stops tumbling??? Drive motor not running at all? No noise from drive motor? Noise you hear is from timer motor?

Yes,it stops tumbling after a few revolutions. The light inside is on, so there is still power to the unit.

It starts normally, runs for a few seconds, then stops. After it stops, the only noise I hear is from the control panel. I don't hear the motor running.

Are you able to rotate drum by hand? If it's binding, the motor overload switch may be tripping. If that's not the problem, it might be a faulty start relay. Unplug dryer, set timer to OFF position, open the control panel, unplug connector from start switch and fashion a jumper wire to jump out the two blue wires on the connector. Plug dryer back in and turn timer on. Dryer should start right away. If it stays running, start switch may be faulty but you really should check the voltage at the blue wires first to make sure it's not a low voltage problem.

I checked the thermal fuse and its ok. I have unhooked the gas line and removed the drum. I turned it on and the motor started, the heat element came on , but it shut off after 20 seconds. I unplugged it and started it again on air dry only. It ran for a few seconds and shut off. After the second try, when the motor started running, there was a clicking sound from it for the few seconds it ran.
