Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer won't start

I have a Whirlpool electric dryer, model # LEQ9857LW0. The belt just broke and we replaced it last night. Dryer lasted one cycle (clothes were still really damp) and then would not restart. When I push the start button, it sounds like the motor is running, but as soon as I remove my finger, it shuts off. The light comes on when I open the dryer door, so I know there is power. Any idea what's wrong now?

Thanks!

I believe you have lost a leg of power.Check you breaker and then the wiring in the back of the dryer.

After several days trying to locate the problem, I decided to junk the machine & buy a new product. The machine was 8 years old and I accidentally broke the igniter while trying to dissamble the various pieces of the machine. The igniter wasn't the problem nor was the problem ever definitely diagnosed. With this machiine's relative little usage & unresolved electrical failure, the machine reflected its poor quality of manufacture.
