Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer door is locked/won't open

After washing one load of laundry (in stacked unit) I tried to open the dryer door to put load in, but it is locked and will not open. I can see that the "latch" or "bolt" (in upper left corner above door) is down, and I can't figure out how to release it. All the dials are in the off position.

    Door latch on a dryer is new to me.
    Are you sure it has a lock on it?
    Have you ever experienced this before?
    Can you supply the complete model number?
    There are several manuals and there should be a few more numbers.

My kenmore 98702 stacked washer/dryer washer lid does not stay open


Underneath the top unit (the dryer) there should be a spring loaded catch that holds the door open. See if it is gummed up and stuck or possibly broken off.

Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer dryer won't start


Hello - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and start normal cycle. If this proves to be ineffective, then contact a professional to move forward accurately. Possible causes could be a faulty power cord or house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch.

Can't open the door


If the door remains locked and will not open, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_

Sometimes using the manual release will correct a momentary door jam problem and return the washer to normal operation.

If the door continues to lock and not open, you may also try unplugging the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes problems are experienced as a result of a momentary glitch in the operation program. Resetting the CCU can often correct most minor problems.

If you require further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Wet towels & blankets stacked on working dryer


This won't affect drying time unless the load is so heavy it causes the cabinet to warp and disturb the door seal. If you haven't had any problem with this so far you can probably keep doing it. (The machine is designed to support the weight of a wet load in the drum, and should have some safety margin. But why not invest in a roll-around laundry cart like you find at laundromats and keep the wet load there until the dryer is clear?) You might need to be more concerned about rust starting on the top of the cabinet if the enamel is scratched, since it's not usually subjected to wet loads being piled there. You should also check your vent pipe frequently to make sure it stays clear with all the drying you do. Clogged lint screens and vent pipes will definitely lengthen drying time.

Can you switch the side the doors open and close.


sorry but the washer can not be changed. its strike has a lock and can not be reversed. the dryer can be changed, but the best thing to do is move the units and get some longer hoses for the washer.
hopefully you can switch the position of the units, but if not then you will be doing the laundry dance every time you do wash.

Water won't work but dryer does


Mine did the same thing and it ended up being an overloaded older breaker in the electric box. It would allow the dryer to work, but the washer was too much for it to operate. Had the breaker replaced with a new one and it works fine. Hope this helps!
