Question about Whirlpool LEQ9858P Electric Dryer
I had a bunch of lint inside the drum of my Whirlpool model LEQ9858LWO electric dryer. Leaned into dryer to remove it. I must have been leaning on the dryer door when I did not realizing it of course. When I went to start the dryer the door would not close all the way. I did push the accutuater (spelling?) switch and the dryer comes on. But the door just won't stay closed on it's own. I know I can fix this myself somehow and avoid a big service call bill. Any help here? Thanks so very much!
You probably bent the hinges if you can't see an actual crease in the door. Just pull the screws out of the hinge where it meets the door, and using a large pair of channel locks manipulate the hinge back to it's proper alignment, stopping to put door back on every once in a while to check it. Simple as that. You may have to flip unit over on it's back if the mounting screws for the hinges are not accessible.
