WP leq7030kq1 electtric dryer. Won't start, push

WP leq7030kq1 electric dryer. Won't start, push to start button just clicks and timer runs. I bypassed the thermal fuse to see if it would run and nothing. Could it still be the thermal fuse, or something else? Thanks

    Once I hit the push to start switch the timer turns off. I can open the door and shut it and the timer will turn back on, hit the push to start switch again and it repeats the process. Inspected the motor and looks ok. No copper beads or anything laying under or around motor like it is fried or anything. The push to start switch makes a click when I push it. Do those go bad?

If the thermal fuse is ok then the door switch or door switch actuator maybe.

My Kenmore Dryer model # 110.65942401 will not start. The door switch seems fine. When I hold the start button in I can here the timer clicking, that's it. Any suggestions? Thanks!


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Dryer will not start. when push button is


Most likely the start switch or door switch has failed. Other failures can also cause this symptom: bad timer, broken belt, bad centrifugal switch, bad motor, etc.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?
