Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
I can't get my whirlpool electric dryer to start. The model number is LER5644EQ2. My breaker is not tripped and the door sensor seems to be working fine. The timer will run while the unit is plugged in but when you press the start button I get a click from the start button and nothing happens. Could this be a fuse in the dryer and where can I find it?
Paul Birk I can't get my whirlpool electric dryer to start either. The model number is YLEQ5000PW1. My breaker is not tripped. Might therre be a reset Button?
Regarding model LER5644EQ2, here is a link to a parts website complete with an assembly drawing and parts list. In all probability,you have a blown thermal fuse and that will need replacing http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
Item #23 on the drawing .. a quick test would be to ( with power removed or disabled) measure the resistance across the two terminals and it should not be an open circuit or it is blown. The drawing shows exactly where it is and the parts list shows the item number/ cost and where to buy a replacement. Hope this helps..
Regarding model number is YLEQ5000PW1, you may have the same problem with your thermal fuse.. the parts website does not show a detailed darwing of your model but it should be similar to the other one I've cited in the location and thermal fuse.. The link I am sending is for the parts list for your washer and the thermal fuse.. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
Let me know if that isn't the problem and we can look at other ways to zero in on a solution..
Hope this helps...

I have a LEQ9030PQO, When you turn it on the heating element heats up, but will do nothing else. Could the on/off switch be defective? I took off the switch and sandpapered the terminals, but nothing.
