Question about Whirlpool LEW0050PQ 3.8 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer - White
The dryer door switch was fried (one of the connectors was black and the switch was partially melted at that connection). I replaced the switch and it worked fine for a couple of days. Now it won't even power on, and the door switch is fried again. Any ideas on what I should try replacing next (besides the door switch)?
The second frying of the switch indicates a major problem somewhere. Start at the receptacle and work your way back to the inside of the dryer and see that everything is tight. I think you will find that the problem lies at where the wire ends at the block inside of the back of the dryer. This might be ugly. Dryers conduct a lot of heat and electricity and can be safe if wired properly. Your breaker may need to be reset. Turn it off and then back on to get it to start up.

It's probably either the start switch or door switch. Try bypassing the switch and see if it starts. If it does,you can either replace the switch or try taking it apart and fixing the switch yourself. (I had a switch that simply required a copper contact to be readjusted and its worked perfectly for several years)
