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.

Re: Dryer wont work!
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.

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
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
check outthis electric no heat tip...
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.
most of the time the dryer vent hose,wall vent and dryer vent hole must be clear to allow the dryer to vent,also you can pull dryer hot put you hand on the dryer vent hole turn on and see if it is venting this will let you know if the blower wheel is turning, let me know what you find-mike
