Ler7646 jqo whirlpool dryer


broken door switch,if the dryer hasn't been cleaned out and you changed out the thermal fuse could be one of the t-stats on the heater box,the model number you sent doesn't come up,
Ler7646jqo,open the door,you'll see a tag with the model and serial numbers,on the frame around the door opening.you'll need an ohms meter to check the parts,you have to remove at least one wire going to the part you're checking with the machine unplugged and check the part for continuity,if the dryer hasn't been cleaned out most likely the high limit thermostat on the heater box.if you don't clean out the dryer and vent line it will pop again until the dryer is cleaned,the dryer is running to hot from the lint blocking the air movement and the fuse pops as a safety device so you don't have a fire.

Dryer was working fine until I turned off the breaker to work on an electrical outlet on the same circuit. When I was done I turned on the breaker all other outlets worked, I went to use the dryer and...


Hello Steve,

I am a bit confused because the model you selected is for a electric dryer which should have a dedicated outlet/breaker only for the dryer
I am going to assume it's a gas dryer and the trouble is with the outlet,to verify this plug a know working object into the outlet and see if it works
Even if the part in the dryer part that cuts the circuit to the motor if it's bad(thermal fuse) has no bearing on the drum light and that should work if power to dryer

Dryer wont run, lights work, timer clicks


what is the model number?there are a couple of things you can check with the little info you sent,check the door switch,push the paddle in and out ,if it doesn't click it's bad,check to see if the belt broke,on some dryers there is a switch down near the pulley,if the belt brakes the dryer won't run,one more thing if your dryer hasn't had a clean out in a long time or if your clothes have been taking a long time to dry check the thermal fuse located on top of the blower wheel housing,if the lint filter is on top the fuse is in the back,take off the vent line,remove the back panel and check the fuse located to the right and down near the bottom of the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is inside then the fuse is in the front the fuse is on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing,also you should clean out the duct that the filter slides into,blow out the vent line,check outside and make sure the flapper is not blocked with anything and vac out the inside of the dryer where the motor is,you need to do this once a year anyway,if you still need help send the model number and let me know what you find,unplug the dryer to clean it and when working on it and remove one of the wires when using your meter

Dryer will not start


Your dryer may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your dryer is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your dryer. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your dryer in.

Hello mdonettaYou said,
Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked okay. Any ideas.

yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset!
If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!

Let me know how it goes!

Wont start


try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
