Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
When I push start nothing happens First it was stopping at the beginning of the drying cycle. Now when I push start nothing happens
The symtom your describing is that of a worn or loose belt. There is a belt safety switch on the motor mount that is actuated by the travel of the idler arm. If the belt is worn stretched or broken the dryer will not start because the belt safety switch has actuated.
This is a matter of changing the dryer belt. In the process of the belt change check the drum felts front and rear for excessive wear, Worn drum felts / seals can losen the belt so the idler travels to tighten the loose belt and can cause the belt safety switch to be activated. .
BEFORE you go directly to the belt as the problem check the door switch. You should hear and audible CLICK as the door just opens or closes. No CLICK = no start. I.e bad door switch.
There are a few other possibilities but these are the 2 most common. If none of the above is related to your dryer or you need more assistance please respond with your dryers' make and model number.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
