Question about Whirlpool LEQ9858P Electric Dryer
My dryer is two years old. Yesterday I pushed the start button, dryer would work but stopped in about one minute. I pulled out the dryer and cleaned the vent. The dryer then worked. Today I pushed the start button, and it would not stay running. It runs as long as the button is being pressed. (Not a good thing, if you have other things to do and cannot stand there and hold the button in!). I empty my lint trap with every use...Any suggestions would be VERY helpful. Thanks. You guys have a great web site.
Did the button click when you pressed it when it worked fine, if it doesn't click now then you need a new button switch, which should be fairly cheap and fairly easy to replace yourself with care if the button should be pressed to start without normally clicking and needs to be pressed to restart each time you open the door then the start relay could be faulty, sound complicated but not the same fault hope i have been of some help, if so please rate me

didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.

You have a severly blocked vent, its not removing the moisture to the outide but instead getting trapped in vent.reccomned reventing unit with solid duct pipe, not the vynyl flex tubing and mke sure the outside exhaust port is totally free of obstruction a well

If the vent is in a vertical arrangement you will need to have a chimney sweep(they are around) or get a cleaning kit for a 4 inch duct(18cm) from a place like Harbor Freight tools($10-15 USD). Doing it your self will be much less expensive. The lint filter can not catch every thing. If it is dammaged replace it but the durt will need to be cleaned periodically due to the nature of the incline. You will also notice faster drying times caused by improved air circulation. Be sure your dryer duct between the machne and the wall is cleaned, hooked up and not collapsed. If this is helpful please leave feedback. Thanks,SnugglePants
