SOURCE: kenmore 80 series electric dryer.

it sounds like the thermal fuse is bad...The back cover needs to come off, but first UNPLUG
If you have a multi-meter set to ohms and test the little bullet shaped fuse in lower area on rear back. It sets alittle left above and up from rear vent it should have two wires going to a small bullit shaped fuse being held on with one screw.. check with meter and if bad you can touch wires together and this will start dryer..it stops dryer if it senses lack of air flow..they usually go bad if your vent is somewhat blocked , or totally blocked...usually before this happens..you might have to put your clothes in twice to dry them.. The wires can be insulated together so they do not touch metal..this will allow machine to run, but , you want to figure out why and correct this problem as welll ....sometimes, they just go bad.

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Our dryer is working fine until it trips the switch.


If tripping of the switch means the circuit breaker is tripping, then yes, the problem may be in the heater box, or may be the motor. It could also be some faulty wiring though, and a good tech could easily determine what is causing the failures.

Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto


I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!

Whirlpool LER2614 repair


The problem was that the dryer did not work when the start button was pushed.
The cause was the paddle that controls the door switch. I fixed it but thanks to those who gave suggestions.

Timer Does not Move


FIRST CHECK YOUR VENT IS CLEANED OUT THEN SEE IF TIMER MOVES WHEN PUT TO A TIMED CYCLE. IF SO MEANS VENT CLOGGED UP. IF STILL NOT MOVING MEANS TIMER CONTROL BAD. COST ABOUT 80-100 FOR PART. YOU COULD DO YOURSELF IF SOMEWHAT HANDI.

COULD BE ORDERED FROM SEARS PARTS DIRECT BY YOU.

OTHER WISE CALL SERVICER AND MAY COST 200.00 TO REPAIR. HOPE THIS HELPS

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose

Dryer just quit


There is no reset switch and there is no fuse inside the console.  I posted comments to your solution under the premium problem section.  I believe you could have a bad thermal fuse which is located in the rear of the dryer.  I left instructions for you to follow.  Let me know if you need further assistance.
