FIRST OFF U SHOULD NEVER USE AN EXTENSION PLUG ON A BIG APPLIANCE ITS A FIRE DANGER. HENCE THE HOT TO TOUCH.
YOU MAY HAVE BAD MOTOR WINDINGS OR DOES THE MACHINE START RIGHT BACK UP AFTER SWITCHING OFF IF NOT, THAT IS A SIGN OF BAD MOTOR WINDINGS.

Power From The House

Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door Switch

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 to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the switch


Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replace the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring

Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.


Main Control

The main control board may have failed. To check this check the two main feed leads entering the control refer to the tech sheet located on your dryer. The two leads are usually a separate plug of heavy wire. Check to see if power is entering you should have 120 volts. If not the problem is not the control. If you have power coming in and nothing is illuminated the main control faulty, replce or the Timer will be replace

Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

I have a Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer that has stopped mid-cycle and will not restart. I know VERY LITTLE about dryers so please use plain language if you give suggestions about how to fix it. Thanks!


1. Does it have electric power? Is the breaker or fuse good? Is the power plug loose?
2. Is the door to the dryer ajar? Please open and close it a few times to check this.

If this doesn't help, you may need new or repaired parts. The timer motor that turns the dryer switch may have failed. The clutch that allows you to turn the select knob for the different dryer cycles may be slipping and have failed. The start button that begins the dryer cycle may have failed after a temporary power outage. The door switch may have failed. The particular switch in the dryer cycle setting you are using may have failed (Other cycles may still work). The dryer thermostat(s) may have failed (prevents too hot/ over-heating). Follow the wires from the "heat selection switch" to find thermostat(s) in the hot air duct. They "turn ON" when too cool and "turn OFF" when hot enough. Mechanical switch contacts can "melt together" and stay always ON. Or switches can get pitted and stay "always OFF" after enough ON/OFF cycles. If pitted contacts happen, you can see this on them. Sometimes a finger nail file (I do not recommend a metal one) can shine them up again. Solid state (electronic) switches have to be tested with a meter or something else to see failure. Please don't do work on electrical or any other problems while the dryer is plugged in or still hot. Good luck. Your mileage may vary. ;-)

Gas Kenmore dryer trips gfci when turned on-the gfci was replace


GFCI are very sensitive. As long as your ground safety on the plug is good and this can be checked with a ohm meter. Now if there is bleed voltage coming fro your dryer you should have it checked out. It could indicate that electrical voltage is trying to go to the third prong on your male plug, sometimes called safety ground.

Igniter only glows on permanent press cycle and not timed cycles


I unplugged the ignitor and put the leads from my multi meter into the plug to monitor the signal to the ingnitor. I got 120 volts only when I turned the timer switch counter clockwise or to the permanent press cycle. When I turned the switch clockwise or to the timed cycle I wouldn't get the voltage to the ignitor. While in the timed cycle, I turned the switch counter clockwise and as I started counter clockwise pressure on the switch knob I got 120 volts to the ignitor. There is a little play in the switch and when taking up the play in the counter clockwise direction the switch would engize the ignitor. The timer switch is bad.
