Question about Whirlpool LER2614JQ Electric Dryer
I replaced the dryer belt, closed it up and now it won't start. I know its getting power because I shocked myself silly on the thing. The door tested out all right and I can't seem to find a reset switch. Am I missing something? I know this is a duplicate post but it was the wrong model...

SOURCE: Dryer won't start
it is one of 2 things,the door switch is bad or the heater box fuse is bad,you can remove the back panel and you will see the little fuse on the top of the heater box,if you have a meter you can check the fuse and the door switch on the ohms setting,ler me know-mike

If you have replaced the door switch you have had the top open, right? Now find the overheat limit switch, somewhere on top, just behind the drum. Use an ohm meter to check it. It should be closed, 0 or near 0 ohms. If the dryer overheats this switch opens and stops the dryer, same as the door switch. usually in the same circuit. If this is good then the run switch on the motor is probably bad. If the circuitry thinks the motor has stopped everything goes of falso. The push to start switch bypasses all of these and lets the motor start to turn. If any of the three are bad when the start button is released the dryer stops again.

SOURCE: Replace Dryer Door Switch
Have you checked the dryer belt? The belt can also prevent a dryer from running. In either case you will need to open the dryer to access both components. this is accomplished by lifting the top panel and/or removing the dryer front.
If the model number is correct, just follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.
2. Remove the two screws that were under the lint screen and lift the top panel.
3. Unplug the door switch connector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing. The part number for a replacement switch is 3406107.
NOTE: At this point you can access and remove the door switch and replace a necessary. If you don't see the dryer belt wwrapped tightly around the drum, there's a good chance it is broken. Continue on with the next steps to replace the belt.
4. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.
5. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.
You should now have complete access to the dryer interior. If the belt is broken, this may cause the idler pulley (tensioner) to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place. To install a new belt (if required) and re-install the pulley, follow these steps:
1. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).
2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)
3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.
If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Roper and refer to diagram H.
Replacement parts (if required) can be ordered on line at any of the following websites:
The part number for a replacement belt is 341241. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also inlcude helpful exploded view diagrams that can help you locate and properly indentify the parts you may need.
NOTE: If you still have the teflon glide type tensioner, Whirlpool recommends you replace it with a conventional roller type idler pulley. The teflon type tensioners caused premature wear to the drive belt. The part number is 691366.
Once you have the belt installed, re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assist may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws.
NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run. Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.
NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them. If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
