    Whirlpool WED5521SQ0 dryer : no heat, the bin is not rotating

    @kok328 The light comes on when I open the door. Is it possible that the thermal fuse is bad and needs replacing?

    Whirlpool WED5521SQ0 dryer : no heat, the bin is not rotating

    Now that replacing the switch didn't help, how can I diagnose what else can be wrong?

    Whirlpool WED5521SQ0 dryer : no heat, the bin is not rotating

    @Snoonyb this is what it looks like. Is 1 the door switch, or is it 1 + the ? in the middle?

    Whirlpool WED5521SQ0 dryer : no heat, the bin is not rotating

    @Snoonyb here's what happens with the start button: when I press it once, it clicks like it usually does, although the machine does not start. When I push it the second time, it "sinks" and does not click. But if I open and close the dryer door, then press start it clicks again and so on. So...

    Whirlpool WED5521SQ0 dryer : no heat, the bin is not rotating

    I have a WED5521SQ0 dryer that's about 13 years old. Stopped working: the light comes on when I open the door, but when I push the start button, the bin is does not move and there is no heat. Also, the start button "sinks" when you press it. So does this sound like a faulty switch? Or a blown...

    Gutter section covered with Gutter Guard overflows

    The pix show a section of my gutters. All gutters are covered with these plastic gutter guard panels. When it rains heavily, the circled section overflows. The panels are a couple of years old and this section of the roof is under two large trees, an oak and a cherry, so there is quite a bit of...

    Looking for cover/"lid" ideas for a workbench

    Won't work. Tried that with the workbench that was there before that. :) It created a sauna underneath and the top -- which was an old door like this one -- rotted after about 1 hot and humid summer.

    Looking for cover/"lid" ideas for a workbench

    I have this 60x36 workbench on my patio and I need to remove the canopy that's covering it. What I want to do is to buy or make some sort of cover/"lid" that would cover the top to protect it from the elements. It only needs to extend over the top, it does not need to cover the whole w/b to the...

    can I plant Green Giants here?

    I live in Maryland. The photo shows my backyard. The area between the shed and bamboo is about 20' wide. I want to plant privacy fence trees of some sort, maybe Green Giants. The roof of the shed faces south and it gets a lot of sun during the day but of course the area next to it is partially...

    What are my options if I want to remove these pavers?

    Some of them are still upright, some on their sides and, yes, this plus the dirt and grass around them makes a barrier

    What are my options if I want to remove these pavers?

    My driveway has a border made of pavers. The only reason for having them is that if I remove them my neighbor will get flooded during heavy rains. These pavers are a pain when mowing and they are ugly. I want to get rid of them. If I want to direct rainwater toward the street instead of into his...
