    I have a different Dryer, but it is also a whirlpool (LEC8858EQ0). It worked fine yesterday morning, then last night I hit the start button, and nothing. The light on the inside goes off when I shut the door though. Does that mean it isnt the door switch?

What clicks?
The timer or a part from inside?
I am thinking either the timer control or door swith has become faulty.

Am I correct in saying that the motor does not start and/or the drum does not spin?

When I push the start button on my Kenmore 700 series dryer nothing happens. You can hear the timer clicking as if it is getting power, but the dryer doesn't come on. Could this be a defective timer?


Check the door saftey switch and the start button for continuety.
My bet is the door switch.
Then look at the timer if both those are good.

Wont start


Is the motor running but the tub not spinning? You can tell by feeling for air movement out the exhaust after you start it or by listening to the dryer (put your ear against it and listen for a humming sound).

If motor is running your belt is broken and will have to be replaced.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Dryer wont start. starter switch is new and timer will run when the door is closed


HI. if the timer is running, and the wiring harness is in good condition, this will confirm motor failure. I would advise to test the operational value of the door switch as well but if the door switch is working, this will only lead to motor failure.
