Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
My electric dryer is about 9 years old. It won't start when start button is pushed. But I think the problem is in the cycle selection button. For a few weeks I have had to toggle it in and out before I push the start button to get it to start tumbling. I definitely think it's the cycle selection button.
THERE IS A SWITCH THAT IS LOCATED ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE DOOR. SOME OF THESE SWITCHES ARE OF THE PLUNGER TYPE. TRY PUSHING THE PLUNGER IN WHILE STARTING THE DRYER, MAKING SURE THAT NOTHING IS IN THE PATH OF THE ROTATING DRUM. IF THE DRYER STARTS, THEN EITHER ADJUST OR REPLACE THE PLUNGER SWITCH. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK

Thanks for using FixYa. The issue might have happened due to a blown fuse or burnt wiring/components on the control board. You'll need to check and replace the fuse and replace it.
Blows fuses or trips circuit breaker —ELECTRIC Models:
• The amperage readings are at 240 volts. One line will be 24 amps and the other line will be 21 amps. The neutral line will be at 3 amps. If the above amperages are not present, then the house wiring, fuse box or circuit breaker should be suspect.
• Shorted heating element to housing.
