My best guess is a faulty start switch. Use your model number on www3.sears.com to get a price estimate of the start switch button and to see if your local Sears Parts store carries it. NOTE: The part number can also be used at any other appliance parts store.

I have the LG Model# DLE1101W dryer. The dryer will power up but when I go to start the dryer after I put a second load in, I get a series of dinging sounds when pressing the start button and the drye


Id like to see if I could help you so you will have to use more definitive terms, "Start" I'm guessing that you mean that the drum doesn't turn? (the lights come on and you push the start button and the drum does not turn) If that's the case I would start with the door switch, Best to start with the most obvious first. Try jumping it to over ride wait your response

Dryer won't start up


Ok, you have one of two problems.
  1. A bad thermal fuse and cut off. They are located inside on the dust. They are round (Nickel size) and have two wires.
  2. A bad element. Located inside the shoot.
Either one of these will cause what your sayiing. You also nee to check the vent. This will make the parts on #1 go out.

Whirlpool Electric dryer won't start


Your problem sounds like it could be a broken belt, faulty motor, or maybe the belt has slipped off of the motor or idler arm pulley.

You can try this first:
Uplug the dryer, reach inside and try to turn the drum 1/4 to 1/2 turn, the plug the dryer back in, and push the start button. Sometimes motors will get dead zones in them and this will move it from that zone.

If you attempt the repair, and if you have a front loading machine, you would remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, you can now check the belt to see if it is ok. If it is ok, then you can remove the drum and belt and this will expose the motor, idler arm with pulley and drum rollers.
While you have the drum out of there it is a good time to check the condition of the drum rollers to see if they have flat spots on them, if they do have flat spots on them, then need to be replaced. If not then I recommend that you lubricate them at the shaft with a good grade of Machine Oil such as 3 in One oil. This will save problems later.
Good luck,
I hope this helps you

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft


That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.

Dryer stopped running, will not restart


When you try to restart do you hear a motor running? If you do hear that sound and the dryer does not turn your belt could be the problem. (broken)
