Question about Whirlpool LER7646E Dryer
My dryer cut out in the middle of a cycle and I was able to restart it after it sat for about 15 minutes. I assume it cooled off, I cleaned the duct just in case that was the culprit. It ran OK the rest of the evening, but the next day it shut down in the middle of a load and now it won't start at all.
I set the timer cycles and hear the timer ticking. The start button will make the engagement "click" noise when pressed. The door switch sounds like it's making the click noise to close the circuit ok.
House CBs look OK and since the timer operates I tempted to assume the motor runs off the same leg.
I'm thinking that it can't be the thermal fuse since I was able to get it started once. I called a repair place and explained the situation. He immediately asked me if it was a Whirlpool and said that it sounds like the symptoms of a bad motor. I asked why did he think guess that it was a Whirlpool and he indicated that this is a common symptom and problem. He tolds me I was better off just getting a new dryer. I have one scheduled for delivery on Saturday, but wonder if it is worth tinkering with to determine if it is something else.
