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

Dryer tumbles, but no heat or air circulating Whirlpool LEQ9508PW1

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

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..
