Your issue might be the thermal fuse. This page goes over that and other potential causes for your model dryer.
The clicking could be the start relay or the door switch ... hard to say.
Good luck on your troubleshooting

    I forgot to add ... if it is the thermal fuse then you also need to understand why it blew ... usually this is because the dryer overheats ... which can be caused by some level of blockage of the vent or lint buildup.

Dryer should tumble with a bad thermal fuse, just no heat, reset breakers, even if they look fine, then check door switch after that check the timer

The thermal cut-out is located on the side of the heater housing assm. To gain access you need to use a putty knife to depress the two spring clips between the top and the front panel and raise the top. The heater is on the back wall. The part number for the t-stat and thermal cut-out kit is LA-1053 and is about $20.00. Don't forget to clean your vent, and check your blower assm. Either one could have caused the problem.

Model He4 dryer. Tried to start the dryer, pressed start and nothing except for a click. All the buttons were lit but did not start. I checked out all the blogs and took a chance on changing the thermal fuse. I ordered the part on Ebay (part number 3392519) for $4 dollars including shipping. When it came in, I took the lower front panel off and replaced the fuse. Dryer works fine.

Your belt is broken, the click that you hear is a centrifugal switch that shunts your start button, so we know the motor is running. Check your belt.

get a meter,unplug the dryer and read out the fuse,pull one of the wires off when you read it out,also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?if it's the fuse usually the air isn't moving very well,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line and make sure the outside vent is clear,if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure you have 240 coming in at the back of dryer,you could have a blown fuse,if the thermal fuse is good,check the thermostats on the heater box and read out the heater,good luck,if i can help with anything else let me know

My Haier Dryer Model RDE350AW only clicks when I press start button, any suggestions?


Since the start relay is clicking it is likely closing the circuit and sending voltage to the dryer motor. You may have a defective thermal limiter fuse blown, it is near the dryer motor so you must remove the back or front of the dryer to access it for testing. Always unplug the dryer before any work is done. You will need a DVOM meter (about $10.00) to check the fuse for continuity.

Roper dryer wont start, do it have a reset button


Check the door switch. With the door open, press the button in and the light should go off. If you don't have a light, listen for a click form the switch as you push and release it. If you don't hear a click, you will need to replace the switch. If the switch is good, then problem will be with the thermal fuse located on the rear of the unit.

Sensor light comes on when you push the start button but does not start spinning


This is a problem commonly caused by a blown thermal fuse due to a faulty thermistor or cycling thermostat depending on the model of the dryer. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing and wired in series with the motor. The motor cannot therefore run when the thermal fuse blows open and no dryer functions works.

Unplug the dryer then remove the bottom panel and the lint duct and check continuity of the thermal fuse. You can also bypass the thermal fuse for troubleshooting purposes. Check for blocked lint filter and restricted vent system if the thermal fuse is indeed blown then replace it including the thermistor/cycling thermostat.

The problem is usually caused by a blown thermal fuse. Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the rear left bottom.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.

Dryer wont run, lights work, timer clicks


what is the model number?there are a couple of things you can check with the little info you sent,check the door switch,push the paddle in and out ,if it doesn't click it's bad,check to see if the belt broke,on some dryers there is a switch down near the pulley,if the belt brakes the dryer won't run,one more thing if your dryer hasn't had a clean out in a long time or if your clothes have been taking a long time to dry check the thermal fuse located on top of the blower wheel housing,if the lint filter is on top the fuse is in the back,take off the vent line,remove the back panel and check the fuse located to the right and down near the bottom of the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is inside then the fuse is in the front the fuse is on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing,also you should clean out the duct that the filter slides into,blow out the vent line,check outside and make sure the flapper is not blocked with anything and vac out the inside of the dryer where the motor is,you need to do this once a year anyway,if you still need help send the model number and let me know what you find,unplug the dryer to clean it and when working on it and remove one of the wires when using your meter

WON'T START


Hi if this a whirlpool model, try this.
Normal 0 Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Dryer clicks when start button pushed but does not start.


A quarter was lodged on the thermal fuse , located below the lint screen on the blower exhaust housing, on our dryer. Remove the front lower panel , 2 screw, and you'll see 2 fuses. I suspect that our control board is burnt.

Whirpool estate dryer teds680eq2 does NOTHING when start button is pushed.


NO POWER CAN BE A MULTITUDE OF PROBLEMS.
1 DOOR SWITCH 2. THERMAL FUSE. 3 MOTOR 4. TIMER
5. HOUSEHOLD VOLTAGE. 6. PUSH TO START SWITCH.

CHECK ITEMS IN THE ORDER LISTED.

THE DOOR SWITCH HAS AN ARM THAT EXTENDS DOWN INTO THE SPACE WHERE THE DOOR CLOSES. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER. PRESS IT WITH YOUR FINGER TO SEE IF IT CLICKS. THEN CLOSE THE DOOR AND SEE IF IT CLICKS WHEN THE DOOR SHUTS.
IF NO CLICK, REPLACE THE SWITCH.

THE THERMAL FUSE IS LOCATED BEHIND THE LOWER BACK PANEL OF THE DRYER DOWN BE THE EXHAUST. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED.
JUMPER ACROSS THE TWO WIRES. PUSH THE START BUTTON. IF THE DRYER COMES ON, REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE AND CHECK FOR PROPER OPERATING TEMPS.APPROX 160-175DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.
IF IT GOES BEYOND 220 DEGREES, REPLACE THE CYCLING THERMOSTAT LOCATED BESIDE THE THERMAL FUSE.

THE OTHER ITEMS SUGGESTED ARE MORE IN DEPTH AND REQUIRE A KNOWLEDGE OF READING SCHEMATICS.
