Dryer wont run


I am going to try this one with very little information. First I would check the circuit breakers and make sure the cicruitg breaker did not trip. then I would turn the timer to different settings like and example delicates, normal cycle. if none of those did not work, I would look at the door interlock switch. on the door there is usually a little tab protuding out and it goes into a slot and pushes a switch. these is so the dryer will not run unless the door is closed.
so more than likely it is power loss problem
door interlock
timer/ start button
hope this helps

How do I get to the heating element and fuse for the Whirlpool LEQ9508PW1?


Fairly simple, Disconnect the power, remove the large backing plate on the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse is a long white skinny piece with two wires on it, just to the left of the vent outlet. The heating element is on the bottom of the heat box on the right side of the back, and has 2 screws holding it on. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

WHIRLPOOL ELECTRIC DRYER.MODEL # LEQ9508PW1. DRYER IS NOT SPINNING. MOTOR IS HEATING AND RUNNING FINE. I OPENED TOP AND BELT IS ON BUT LOOSE. BELT IS NOT BROKEN JUST LOOSE. WHAT COULD THIS BE?


You will have to go farther and remove the drum.
I believe your problem is that the belt has slipped off of the motor, or has slipped off the idler arm with pulley brackett.

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

HELP Whirlpool dryer LEQ9508PW1


Hello beeps299,
If your Electric Dryer isn't doing anything at all, I would encourage you to do a few basic checks..
First off, are you sure that the circuit breaker feeding power to the dryer hasn't tripped?
If that's OK and you are sure you have power getting to the dryer then the next thing to check would be the door interlock switch. If that is not working properly when the door shuts, that disables most other functions. The switch could be defective, the wiring that goes to it may have gotten disconnected or damaged so that is where I would start to look first....
Hope that helps.
Other things that may impact the dryer are non-resettable fuses inside but I wouldn't go that route until you've checked the basics.. Let me know what happens after your initial checks are done..

Regards,
Rick

Thermal fuse for the motor is out. It's on inside on the back wall. look for the two blue wires connecting to it.

Won't start


If it won't start , then the door interlock switch is the first place I would look at..are you sure the door interlock switch is working? Here is a link that shows your dryer as an exploded view as well as associcated replacement parts.. The thermal fuse ( normally associated with the heater only ) should be checked as well .. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
Hope this helps...Let me know what you find ..

Turn it on and its not spining


take top off machine and give the drum a push by hand. if it starts and continues to run then the fault is the motor capacitor - cheap part
