Gas Dryer won't start
Posted 07 July 2005 - 09:54 AM
My Inglis gas dryer suddenly stopped working the other day. The model number is ID76701. I can't find a lot of information on this machine on the internet, is it exclusively canadian? I think it's a subdivision or Whirlpool. Just after a load was done, i put in another load and started it. it turned a few times and then stopped. When I try to start it, i hear a clicking noise and that's it. Can anyone help me diagnose this problem? I have a multimeter and found the wiring diagram inside but i'm not sure where to start.
Also, if I was to replace this dryer (I'm thinking of replacing the washer too but that's another problem), what brand/models would you recommend in the mid-price range?
P.S. Don't mean to go offtopic but I was unable to submit this using firefox so i had to use internet explorer.

But I'd definately like to get some feedback on my problem to know if it is worth repairing. What components should I look at that could be causing this problem? I think I've already ruled out the door switch, the start switch and the thermal fuse. All I hear when I press start (no matter what setting i put the dryer in) is the click noise coming from the bottom (motor?) i usually hear when it starts but nothing else. I've read about humming noises in other threads but I don't seem to be hearing any of that.

BTW, I use Firefox on a Mac iBook G4 almost exclusively, no problems. I don't have a WYSIWYG editor on the forum when I use Firefox, but no problems.
