Question about Frigidaire Dryers
It was working fine when I used it last night and now it will not come on. I check the breakers and they are all good. It is getting power because when you turn the nob for the setting/timer you can hear it making a faint clicking sound. I checked the door switch and it does not feel loose but I am not sure how to check to see if it is working or broken.

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...

A likely cause is failure of the relay.
the start switch provides a current to energise a relay,
the relay latches open (draws energize current from switched circuit) until current path is broken by the timer or door switches.
if the wires have come off the relay(happens) or the coil of the relay has failed, there will be no start.
With plug pulled
trace the wires from the start switch, to the first device, looks like this may be opaque. if any of the wires have come off refit them and retry start.
relay diagram looks like this test with meter for conduct between terminals labelled 85 86 (or Coil in other labelling standard),
or take to appliance parts store, can test and provide replacement on site.
Appliance part store will likely provide part labelled whirlpool, not a problem all the small parts are interchangeable
NOTE dryer relay may have up to 8 terminals,
2 for coil
3 (open close common) for each phase
