Question about Whirlpool LER7646E Dryer

1 Answer

My whirlpool dryer model #ler7646eq1...has trouble getting started, when u hit the start button it hums like it is wanting to start, it will do this sometimes for the whole cycle without starting. and then sometimes it will start but only for about 5mins to 15mins before it cuts off...and then the hum comes back until it starts up or until we put the timer back on and then maybe it will start back up (i have a 15month old son and a mother with terminal cancer, i can not afford a new dryer or repairman,if you can a asap response would be appreciated)

Could be a couple things, depending on the buzz you are getting, if it's a buzz from the board like an alarm, it could be a door switch, if it's an electric sounding humming buzz it could be something stuck in your blower wheel like a sock

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.

When I push the start button the dryer will not start


May need to replace the starter swithch behind the control panel. MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS DISCONNECTED. If you still hear a humming sound when you hit the start button then it is not the switch, but the motor and if that is the case you may want to look into your warranty.

Dryer wont start when start button is pressed, but humming sound


I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....

Whirlpool Dryer Model # LER7646EQ1 won't start


I'd check door switch first. Improper voltage, thermal fuse, start switch, motor, and wiring are also possibilities.
