Question about Whirlpool LEW0050P Electric Dryer

1 Answer

The power will not come on. The circuits are fine and it is plugged in.

I used it and it worked fine, then the next load that I put in the light would not come of for the power when I pushed the power button. We have checked the circuits and they are fine, and the plug is in the wall.

Our model is LEW005OPQ if that makes any difference.

    I have the same trouble -- any luck with fixing yours?

  • jigajake Nov 10, 2008

    Exact same problem and the same Model. Had just run another load a few days before, hit the power button to turn it on and it came on for a second then shut off. Checked the plug and the breaker and they were both good.

    First ours started to run (rotate) with the door open - We kept running it that way as Whirlpool said it was not their problem. But by continuing to run it - one day it jsut stopped - no red light no power no worky ! and we found out that the store where we bought it had gone out of
    business before they "got around to" paying GE for our extended waranty
    contract.

    SO we paid for the dryer - AND the extended waranty - AND
    will have to pay to have it fixed ?!?

    Needless to say we went back to using our old one while we try to sort this out through consumer protection or whatever it takes.

What will happen to your car if a ground wire is loose


Whatever part, motor, or electrical load that ground is for will not work. For instance, a motor is an electrical load, put power to it -it won't operate without a path to ground after the load. A lighting bulb is an electrical load. Send power to it. and the bulb won't light, power will not travel through the bulb filament making it bright, without a path to ground after the bulb. Every electrical load has to have a path to ground, or it will not work-the reason for the term "circuit"-every wiring circuit (starting circuit, light circuit, ignition circuit, etc.) begins at the power source and ends at the power source. The ground completes the circuit back to earth (ground), and as you know, all grounds go to metal frame, and thus go back to the battery. If the circuit is not complete, the electrical load will not operate. See?

WASHER WONT START


HI,

f your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

All my Dell power adapters are dying! I have 3 and none work now. The first one started saying it was not compatible, then the next one worked for a short period then the green light went out. I put one...


Yes! unfortunately it is, the reason why the power adapter has the high pitch noise is because the power supply is being loaded down by the motherboard, it may be due to the DC jack in the laptop or the charging circuits on the motherboard causing the problem. However there is one way to find out, remove the main battery to see if the high pitch noise goes away, if it does! it will prove where the problem is. It is also very possible that the battery is loading the whole circuitry, because it may have a high resistance short, enough to cook the power supply, I have seen this in very rare cases and is one for the books.

LER7620LW0 dryer does nothing...........worked fine on last load.........door switch makes clicking noise...........what should i try next


If the dryer is doing nothing at all, sounds like you lost power to it or the door switch has failed even if you hear a clicking sound. Check to see if you have power at the outlet where the dryer is plugged in. Use a hair dryer or other portable device. If there is no power there, check the circuit breaker for that outlet. It may have tripped.

Sears Craftsman Gar. door opener won't respond


There isn't a fuse. You are going to need to remove the cover on the opener and find out where you are losing the power. Maybe a neighbor has a volt meter you could use. I would check the power cord and then the logic board. Makes no sense but I would check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit board especially around that small transformer.

No Power


HI THIS SOUNDS LIKE A CIRCUIT BOARD FAULT PROBABLY BLOWN 3 SMALL COMPONENTS & A BIT OF TRACK ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND SIDE OF BOARD.IT IS USUALLY ONE OF 2 FAULTS THAT CAUSE THIS EITHER A MOTOR PROBLEM IE CARBON BRUSHES TOO LOW OR FAULTY MOTOR THE OTHER THING THAT USUALLY BLOWS THE BOARD IS THE DOOR INTERLOCK GOING FAULTY. I HAVE REPAIRED LOADS OF THESE BOARDS & 9 TIMES OUT OF 10 ITS ONE OF THEM THAT BLOWS IT HOPE THIS HELPS!

Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working


Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning
