Question about Whirlpool LER2614JQ Electric Dryer
I tried to reply without success that I fixed the problem I posted previously.
The symptom was, the dryer would not turn on. As it turns out it was the
paddle that controls the door switch. It was broken.The dryer works fine now.
The problem was that the dryer did not work when the start button was pushed.
The cause was the paddle that controls the door switch. I fixed it but thanks to those who gave suggestions.

My dryer turns on but when I click start, it simply clicks, but doesn't run. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Ok, lets first check your thermal fuse.
You would need to take off the lower front access panel under your door, then take off the duct assembly#45, by removing the two #11 screws as shown in your parts diagram here: Bulkhead parts for Whirlpool GEW9250PW1
Unplug or turn the breaker off to your dryer first before opening it up and ohm testing.
Then you will need a multimeter to ohm your thermal fuse. Its #59 in that parts diagram, take both wires off the thermal fuse first.
Here's the thermal fuse for your model you can order here if needed:
Thermal Fuse WP3392519
This video shows how to test it:
Let us know what you find.
If the thermal fuse tests good, We've had a few members report door switch problems.
You can check it for continuity with a multimeter to make sure.
Here's that door switch you can order:
Door Switch WP8283288
It shows on Page 4-6 in your repair manual I posted a link to below how to access it to check/change it. Make sure your dryer is unplugged!
Push the button in on the door switch with one meter probe on COM and the other meter probe on NO and see if it reads. Normal ohms is 0-1.
If the thermal fuse and door switch check fine, then its the control board.
Here's the control board for your model you can order here:
Main Control Board WP8546219
I'm attaching the repair manual pdf for the Whirlpool Duet dryer below.
It shows how to get access to the control board on page 4-2 through 4-4.
Unplug or turn the breaker off to your dryer first.
