Question about Whirlpool LEW0050P Electric Dryer

Dryer will not start. When Power is turned on and Power, then Start buttons are pressed- the red lite blinks and there is a high pitched ring, but no movement in dryer drum, no heating and no blower action. The door appears to be closing properly. What can be wrong?

Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

Rylee

The power light stays red and if pushed to go on, only blinks red. There is a high pitched sound when it is plugged into the wall. I've tried unhooking the box from the antennae, the tv, and the wall...


Sounds like you have a high voltage issue with the power supply. The blinking light is actually a trouble code and some of these can be found in your manual, others can be looked up on the web if you type the make and model of the set and the number of blinks you should be able to track down the issue. If your not comfortable about working on the set then you will ned a repair person to check out the power supply and other boards on the set.

High pitched noise red light blinking


A high pitch noise comes normally from blown capacitors from the motherboard or the power supply. But mostly high pitch noise comes from power supplies.

You could have to open up the power supply to see them.

Verify if it is the case and replace the faulty part.
