Question about Whirlpool LER7646E Dryer
My Whirlpool dryer has stopped working. It will not turn on at all. The model # is LET7646EQ2
First check the electrical panel to your house. If it's a fuse panel check the fuses. If it's a breaker panel, reset it by flicking it off, then back on (do this even if it looks like it's already on).
If the dryer still doesn't work...
1) Check the door switch by pressing it in and listening for a clicking sound as you do so. If the door switch actuator spring is broken or if there is no click, replace the door switch assembly. This is done by removing the 2 screws under the lint trap screen and lifting the cabinet top. From there you can access the door switch. REMEMBER TO UNPLUG THE DRYER! You can also use a jumper wire on the door switch to verify it's function (unplug the door switch and connect a jumper wire to the 2 wires going to the console.
2) Check for a broken belt by lifting the cabinet top and visually inspecting the belt or by manually turning the drum from the inside (you should feel resistance or hear the motor turning).
3) Unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. On the heater housing remove the wires from the thermal cut-off and high limit thermostat and check the resistance with an ohm meter. If either of them are open (no reading) replace both (they come as a kit).
3) If everything checks out so far it may be the timer.
