Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer

1 Answer

The light burned out last week and now the dryer won't turn on

Last week teh light in the dryer stopped coming on. I figured--no big deal, It's not dark! Today, I put my clothes in and pushed the buttons to start it and saw a quick flash and now, when I hit the button to start the dryer--it just beeps twice and the numbers flash at me--on any setting. I think it is laughing at me!

Some dryers that have an interior light that is controled by the door switch, check the light to see if it's burned out, if it's not your door switch may be bad, when you open the door the door switch allows the interior light to come on, when you close the door the door switch shuts the light off, a bad door switch will not allow your dryer to start.

Keep your dryer running how it should and save money


service your dryer every 3 months if you use it 3/4 times a week 2 times a week every 6 months it is important easy to do yourself but make sure you turn the power off 1st depending on the make or model you need to get into the inside of your dryer and vac all the lint and dust out all around it builds up on the motor and heater fan if the motor fan gets blocked it will cause the dryer to stop and you will have to wait till it cools down for it will start again not good as the motor will burn out or could catch fire if you follow my advice your machine will last longer and work better
