Dryer won't start - Whirlpool LER7646EQo

Dryer will not start - timer works and door sensor/switch works. I ordered a new start switch/push button (3398095) but it sounds as if I ordered the wrong part...I should have probably order new Thermal Sensors?

    I have the same problem. Same dryer. Thought it might be the push to start button parts but after calling around for the part, one person told me it's rare for that part to go bad. She said if I hear the clicking of the timer, it's probably the thermofuse. Any Ideas?

Update: I put in a Thermal Fuse Part # 3392519 and we are spinning again! The part will cost about $14.00.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

Won't run. Can hear clicks when changing settings, but won't run when push start button.


Check the door switch for continuity.
Remove the rear panel and check the thermal fuse attached to the exhaust vent on the lower left side. It is 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and white in color.
If it is blown you must correct the air flow problem also.

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!
