Question about Washing Machines
I have a Whirlpool LEW005PQ. It's about 7 years old and was working fine. When it stopped working we called an engineer to look at it who said it was the door switch which had burned out. He gave us a ridiculous quote for the repair and I looked at how to repair it and found it was actually quite an easy fix so did it myself. This was 12 months ago and was replaced. It has since burned out twice more and I'm baffled as to what could be causing this. Please could you tell me what checks I should do to avoid this happening again.
First, let me guess. Did you happen to buy plastic "cheap" ones? These days, that may be all that is available. Manufacturers are going for parts that cost a few pennies to make.
For a solution, I would check your grounds. Start with the back of the machine where the cord attaches. Make sure the wires are good and are tight. Then, check the cord, and the place where the cord plugs it. Take it apart. Check for good and for tight connections. Go then to the house or apartment fuse./circuit breaker box. A bad or poor ground can cause electricity to do crazy things, just like you have described. Be blessed.

If your dryer is a condenser type maybe you need to yank out the condenser and give it a good clean. Could not make the model number posted work.
