WHIRLPOOL DRYER ELECTRIC LE6150XS

Dryer was working fine the last time we used it. The light is on inside the dryer. I set the tmer and push the button, but got nothing. We checked
the electrical plug. We also checked to see if the door was shutting tight, it was. It jus isn't doing anything. Help!

    I have the same problem. I put in a load. Turned the timer knob to 70min, but it was actually set to "off" by accident; I hit start and it buzzed (normal behavior).

    Set timer away from "off" and it didn't start. "Off" doesn't buzz anymore either.

First, check if the start switch is making contact. that's the thing that you press. you can use any continuity tester to test it. test also the door switch. it may be broke. both should have continuity when you press the switch and when you closes the door.

Why do the Automatic cycles on my Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer not always work?


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto


I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!

Dryer clicks when start button pushed but does not start.


A quarter was lodged on the thermal fuse , located below the lint screen on the blower exhaust housing, on our dryer. Remove the front lower panel , 2 screw, and you'll see 2 fuses. I suspect that our control board is burnt.
