    Thank you Mike!



    I would like to try and tackle this...how can I check the door swithch and or the main blower box fuse? This seems to narrow it down. I look forward to your response.

Ok if you don't hear a load sound like the motor trying to start it's not the start switch or motor,more then likely it's the door switch or the main blower box fuse,let me know if you want to try to tackle this let me know-mike

    i need to know if the dryer was a top lint filter or inside lint filter,the door switch if you don't have a meter you can check it just by pushing it to see if you hear it click on and off,make sure the lever that clicks it is not broken also-mike

  • MIKE major Nov 04, 2008

    so it must be the main fuse on the blower box,you must pull out the dreyr,remove the back panel,you will see a long white fuse on the blower box,if you have a meter you can remove both wires and omh it to make sure,so can also remove wires on the heater box and check top fuse middle thermostat and bottom heat element,but since nothing works it's one of 2 thing door switch or main blower box fuse-mike

Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

Dryer wont start when start button is pressed, but humming sound


I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....
