    the switch doesn't making any noise. it is your motor, i am so sorry. replacing a motor can be tough, but you could do it. a new one costs about $100 of so. if you do i can walk you through it. kelly P.S. try spinning the drum, hold down the door switch and then push the start button and see what happens.

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 not working


How do you know the belt is on? Did you take the unit apart? Maybe a connection to the control knob came off. Otherwise:

1) Check the breaker to see if it has been tripped
2) Dryer plugged in
3) dryer door securly closed
4) if your unit is a single knob with various dryer settings, try a different setting (delicate, permanent press, etc)
5) if your unit has a start button, set the knob to the desired setting first, then press start.

frist check the door switch in sure it is working if it is good unplug the dryer remove the back cover where the vent comes out there is a little white fuse with 2 wires on it. it is oblong and most of the tim the 2 wires are blue replace this fuse and your dryer should work fine.

Whirlpool LER4634EQ, when I press the button to turn dryer on it doesn't kick in, won't turn on. but you can hear the timer humming on the temp dial. Dryer was working perfectly. Is there a fuse in those...


yes, it sounds like you blew the main dryer thermal fuse, easy fix. write down the model number and go and buy one were ever. it will be white plastic with two metal tabs coming out of it. it might be skiny or it could be a round one no bigger then a half dollar. write me back once you have this. kelly

Whirlpool dryer (electric)


did the button click when you pressed it when it worked fine, if it doesn't click now then you need a new button switch, which should be fairly cheap and fairly easy to replace yourself with care if the button should be pressed to start without normally clicking and needs to be pressed to restart each time you open the door then the start relay could be faulty, sound complicated but not the same fault hope i have been of some help, if so please rate me
