Question about Whirlpool LEQ9858P Electric Dryer
Our 3 year old Whirlpool Dryer (model no. LEQ9858PW0) will not start. The light comes on inside, the timer "ticks" when set to dry, but when I press the start button the machine just makes a "buzzing" sound.
My wife said when the problem started she heard a "pop" or "thud" sound...
I checked the thermal fuse by disconnecting the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape (metal connectors touching), but when I hit start it did the same thing...just makes a buzzing sound.
I had to replace the drive belt a year ago, and I checked it...and it is okay too.
Sounds as if wither you have a bad motor assy, or something haas fallen down into the "blower assy" preventing the motor form spinning.. in the back wher eyou tested your fuse, just to the left of that you see a large tubular housing (rounded on bottom", thats the cover for the blower , i believe its 3-4 screw holding it on, nad also the 2 screws visable when you remove the filter assy, the housing will pull off( you may need to wiggle it abit) and hopefully youll find a sock or something jammed in the blower assy
