Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
The problem where the door is closed tighter but light still stays on is most likely a door switch problem of some kind. The other ones sound more like thermal fuse or voltage to the unit. Do you have a volt-ohm meter? If not or if you are not sure how to use one you should probably call a tech. Simple reair shouldn't cost too much

I hate to ask the obvious, but, is there power to the outlet?
Is there power to the inside terminal block of the dryer...where the power cord connects? Are the wires all connected? Are any of them burnt?
Does the dryer make ANY noise at all? Motor attempts to start? Ticking sound when timer is on?
Does it heat up at all?
There is a switch in the front of the dryer that is actuated by the door being closed...TIGHT.
If the door is not shut completely, the switch will not allow the dryer to start.
If you an hear the motor running but the drum is not turning, the belt is broken.
If you can narrow down the symptoms I could probably be more help. Comment back. Thanks!
