Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
You are referring to the door switch. This will definitely keep the dryer from running. When the door closes, the switch also closes, which provides an electrical path to the timer, switch and start motor. If the switch is broken, the dryer will not run. You will need to open the dryer to access the switch to replace. 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 dryer top panel.
3. Locate the door switch and unplug the connector plug. Remove the mounting screw(s) that hold the switch in place. The part number for a replacement switch is 3406105.
Replacement parts can be ordered on line at any of the following websites:
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: 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.
