Dryer wont work!

I have a whirlpool dyer LER8648PWO
It wont start. We have checked the plug and cleaned out the back of the dryer. We have checked the thermanal fuse(sp) and it still wont work.
It just wont turn on at all.
We even checked the breaker.
What could this be? Is there a restart somewhere?
We just bought it used but it worked at the ladys house.

A couple suggestions: (1) The switch in the front may be bad. It's the switch that turns the dryer off when you open the door. (2) Make sure the door latch keeps the door shut. If it is worn and the door isn't shut tight, the switch will not let it start. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool duet electric dryer leaking water


Check and clean your venting from the dryer to the outside. If it is plugged it will trap the moisture in the machine. Remember heat doesn't dry the clothes without air flow to push the moisture out.

Did you check if the motor works? If it never starts that may be the cause.

Where is the the reset button on roper dyer


There is no reset button on any dryer. Your Roper is a Whirlpool with a different nametag. Depending on how old it is there may be 1 or 2 non resetable fuses. They are in the back behind the rear cover. They blow when there is another problem. Such as a clogged exhaust or a bad cycling thermostat. Don't do any work on it without double checking that the machine is unplugged

Whirlpool dyer will not work, have replaced the board but


Sounds like the control panel may be dead. If you cannot get any lights to come on at all on the front panel, its probably a goner. You can check the voltage coming out of the control pc board via the schematic inside the dryer panel. I have this same exact problem. I replaced the control board 3 times because the panel seems fine if i plug it into an external power supply but will not work when plugged into my dryer. I have my jumpered and running off of a circuit breaker. I have checked every part in the entire unit. That was over 2 years ago. I still need to get a control panel and see if it fixes mine but after dropping $130 on the control board, i feel i could buy another dryer with the $200 they want for the control panel. Also this dryer seems to streak my clothes with brown or rust colored spots. The dryer is spotless inside. I even took off the rubber seal because i thought the glue is what was possibly doing it when it heated up but that didn't help either....This dryer sucks.

Dryer won't start


Check the door switch, if the switch is bad the dyer thinks the door is open it will not start.
