Whirlpool Dryer LER7646EQ1 Motor?

Whirlpool LER7646EQ1. When I push the start button the motor makes a humming sound for about 4 seconds then some type of breaker system cuts off power. I checked belt, pulleys, the felt strips could use replacing but I think the prob. is elec. Motor? Any ideas would be appreciated Thanks.

Could be something jamming the fan blade but if the motor shaft turns freely then your motor is bad.

Dryer sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, what's the problem?


i have a feeling that it's a fault in the power chord, take it out and double check. it would make sense if it only work now and then after you have plugged it back in because it could have made the wires touch again to make it work

What is the problem with my dryer?


The motor starting circuit is failing. Confirm this by giving the drum a push start when it hums. Most likely, the centrifugal switch on the motor is sticking (due to lint buildup) or broken. It has a mechanical component that operates an electrical switch. Check the mechanical operation, then check the switch. Also, check that the motor electrical connector is seated completely.

Whirlpool Dryer Starts fine, but then stops and start button stops working


This is a sign of the Motor failing. The motor is over heating and then wont start again. When the start button is pushed, does it make a humming noise? If so replace drive motor and it will fix it all up!

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

I have a whirlpool gold gas dryer model #GGQ8858JQ1. When I push the start button the dryer wont start it just makes a humming sound.


You either have something caught in the blower or you have a bad motor. If you unplug the dryer and pull it out. Then remove the rear panel (1/4" hex screws), looking at it from the rear, the blower is on your left. Remove the two screws that hold the blower housing on. You should be able to get your hand in far enough to see if there is something in the blower.

Whirlpool LER5644A No heat and motor wont Turn


Replace the dryer wires.
Put your meter leads into the 4&5 slots.
Make sure the door switch is closed or jumpered.
Push the start button.
If you read no voltage the issue is with the wiring, the timer, or a relay.
