Question about Dryers

Whirlpool Dryer has power but will not start

The Dryer has power. The light comes on and I can hear the timer working.
I think the start switch might be bad. I think I need to either order part number 9902A or 694419, but I don't know which. I have the instructions manual that shows part number 3397618 REV. A -- I guess that's the part number for the instructions manual. Any chance you can figure out what might be the trouble? It's a Whirlpool Heavy Duty Super Capacity electric dryer.

Dryer has no power will not turn on


Is door shut good ? Check door switch push it in and see if you can hear it click. Check power at outlet then where it goes into the dryer. Check start switch and voltage coming out of the timer. Check voltage to motor. If voltage to motor you will need a motor.

Hello...i have a whirlpool dryer ler7646eq1...the dryer will not start...i can hear some action near the switches but dryer will not start at all...any idea where to start....it is getting proper power...


Hi,
Here are somethings to check.
Make sure you have power and inspect power cord.
Check the door switch when you push in the door switch does it click? Try setting the timer to a different setting see if it works there. The next thing to check would be the thermal fuse but this would require opening up the cabinet.

Whirlpool dryer will not start, used to start if I turned timer


whirlpool electric dryer will not start when you push start button. Model No. LER5634AW0. There is power to the dryer. The door switch appears to be working,(didn't check it with a meter). I push the start button, run it through all the cycles and still nothing. Are there any resets or circuit breakers that I could check? Where do I go from here?

WILL NOT COME ON .IT HAS LINE POWER FOR SUPPLY BUT SWITCH DO NOT START THE DRYER .whirlpool roper dryer


check the door switch. if the machine think the door is open, it will not start.
just locate the switch that the door would normally hit when you close it. operate it a few times with your finger. you should feel or hear a click when the switch closes. if you don't, the switch will need replaced.
other than that your timer is suspect. it is much more expensive to replace. good luck

Whirlpool dryer won't start. replaced the door switch & the push button switch still won't start. the light works when door is closed. can hear timer ticking like always.


It sounds like you have lost a leg of power. Turn off both breakers, then back on. Then check the receptacle, the plug and then the wiring to the back of the dryer. This is likely where it is. There is a thermal fuse located under the top of the dryer. Easy to get to. Bypass it and if it works then, just replace it for about 15 dollars.

Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto


I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!
