My whirlpool will not turn on what could it be?


Check if you have 220 volts at outlet. If not check house breaker box.If you do check for 220 volts on end of power cord in the machine. Check the start switch, check voltage coming out of timer . Check voltage to motor. Hope some of this helps.

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.

Dryer electric when i push the start button nothing happpens


Make sure you have 220 Volts of power at outlet, check circuit breakers. Then, with dryer door open, look for door switch actuator on door. It may be broken. Use flat screwdriver to manually push door switch in, then push start.

Dryer will not start door is closed


Carefully check your 220 outlet. You can check a 220 buy a volt meter. Make sure your volt meter is set over 220 range and put the red lead into the slot and black lead into the L shape. It could be you are not getting 220 power out of your outlet. We all know on a 220 outlet both legs have 110 on each side. A dryer takes 110 for the motor, and takes 110 for elements.

Whirlpool Dryer LER7646EQ1 Motor?


Could be something jamming the fan blade but if the motor shaft turns freely then your motor is bad.

Whirlpool Dryer LER7646EQ1 Not heating


If your drive motor is turning, but your timer and heating circuits are not working, it sounds like you could be missing one leg of your 220 service. The dryer timer and heating circuits utilize the full 220 from the receptacle, while the drive motor only uses 120 VAC. Unplug your dryer and check the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240 VAC across the two hot leads (these are the two large slots). The wires are BLACK - L1 & RED - L2. If you only read 120, check each slot to the NEUTRAL slot (white wire) to determine which one is missing. Chances are, you may have a break in the L2 (red wire) line. Here's the wiring scheme depending in which type of power cord you may have:

3-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – Usually grounded to the equipment frame via a jumper wire or metal strap.

4-prong color code:

BLACK (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L1
RED (HOT – 110-120VAC) – May also be referred to as L2
WHITE (NEUTRAL – 0VAC) – DO NOT ground to equipment frame.
GREEN (GROUND) – Attach to equipment frame.

Please doublecheck and let me know. If your source voltage is correct, perform continuity checks from the end of the power cord to the terminal block in the back of the dryer. Inspect for any burned or broken wires. If you are not able to isolate a problem at this point, please post back and let me know. I can assist you further. I hope this helps.

Appliance rewiring wiring WIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II


The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II cannot be outfitted for a standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Your dryer is a 220 VAC appliance. It needs to have it own dedicated 30 amp, 220 VAC circuit with the proper outlet and power cord installed. The dryer heating circuits and timer will not run on 115 VAC. I think you need to reconsider what you are about to do...

Whirlpool dryer


    You need to check for 220 volts at outlet.  It's possible to have only 1 110 volt circuit.  May be a bad breaker. or outlet.  If you have 220 volts at outlet,  you need to have an ohm meter to check continuity of the thermal fuses and the heater.   Access by removing rear panel.  UNPLUG FIRST!!!!!
