Re: Dryer will not start and it has power to it.
If your dryer has power and will not start when you press the start button, you may have an interlock that isn't made to allow it to start. It could be the door switch, a non-resettable fuse inside the dryer or something else. Are you getting any error messages on the system? Please advise and I will follow along with you...

What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
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?
There should be an interlock device in the door that shuts the dryer off when the door is opened. The device is a switch that opens the power circuit. If the switch isn't being closed when the door closes, then the dryer won't start.
disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor How old is this dryer?
Hello mdonettaYou said, Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer
acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start
button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked
okay. Any ideas.
yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset! If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!
