I have a Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer that has stopped mid-cycle and will not restart. I know VERY LITTLE about dryers so please use plain language if you give suggestions about how to fix it. Thanks!

1. Does it have electric power? Is the breaker or fuse good? Is the power plug loose?
2. Is the door to the dryer ajar? Please open and close it a few times to check this.

If this doesn't help, you may need new or repaired parts. The timer motor that turns the dryer switch may have failed. The clutch that allows you to turn the select knob for the different dryer cycles may be slipping and have failed. The start button that begins the dryer cycle may have failed after a temporary power outage. The door switch may have failed. The particular switch in the dryer cycle setting you are using may have failed (Other cycles may still work). The dryer thermostat(s) may have failed (prevents too hot/ over-heating). Follow the wires from the "heat selection switch" to find thermostat(s) in the hot air duct. They "turn ON" when too cool and "turn OFF" when hot enough. Mechanical switch contacts can "melt together" and stay always ON. Or switches can get pitted and stay "always OFF" after enough ON/OFF cycles. If pitted contacts happen, you can see this on them. Sometimes a finger nail file (I do not recommend a metal one) can shine them up again. Solid state (electronic) switches have to be tested with a meter or something else to see failure. Please don't do work on electrical or any other problems while the dryer is plugged in or still hot. Good luck. Your mileage may vary. ;-)

Whirlpool Supreme Dryer rumbles while turned on then stops mid cycle. When I push the start button I hear a buzzing noise, then a click and then silence. After the dryer sits for a while, it will start...

Chances are it's the drive that drives the belt around the drum, or the motor is on its way out. Have a technician inspect the belt/belt drive system as well as the motor.

Whirlpool Dryer stopped mid cycle and won't start again

This sounds as if the internal fuse has blown. I am assuming you have checked the breakers as well. The starter switch might be bad.
