Question about Dryers
Whirlpool electric dryer Model # LEQ9508LWO (4 years old)
Put a load of clothes (rather heavy items: 2 flannel sheets, 2 bath towels + some socks) into the dryer and started the dryer. When I returned later, expecting to find the clothes dry, I discovered the dryer had stopped midway thru the cycle leaving the clothes rather damp. I was unable to restart. The start button would not engage (could not push it "on"). Checked the breaker box, & none of the switches had been tripped. However, we flipped all the switches in the breaker box--still nothing. Is there anything we can do to fix this? Any help will be appreciated.
Your dryer has a non-resettable "thermal safety fuse" part number 3392519 which stops the machine dead when the temperature near the heater gets too high. Typically a restricted vent system causes this so you definitely want to check that before replacing it. A failed control thermostat can also cause this so check the operating temp too.

I had the same problem when my dryer was 2 1/2 years old. It was the heating element. I had it replaced for $200 including labor, etc. And now, 13 months later (one month after the warranty ran out) I am having the same problem. I won't be calling the repair man this time. I'll be looking for another dryer.
