Default Whirlpool Electric Dryer won't start.
Model Number: LER7646EQ0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dryer has suddenly stopped working. It was drying a load when it stopped. When the start button is pushed there is nothing happening. The timer still is clicking so I know that there is power and not a blown breaker and the push to start switch has continuity. I have replaced the motor once already a couple of years ago but it does not make any noise as if it is trying to run, just total silence. Is there a possibility that the timer is bad or some safety fuse has tripped and if so how would I check and replace it?

Here is your parts breakdown
Model LER7646EQ0

Here is a tech sheet
https://www.servicematters.com/docs/...%203401735.pdf

You will see that there is a Thermal Fuse in the motor circuit. I believe this is Item 7 in Section 3 of the parts breakdown.

If you do not have a meter to check it. You could short the wires together, tape them up so they cannot short to anything and give it a try. If blown replace it. Do not leave it like this as this is a fire safety device.

Give the inside of the unit a good cleaning. Also clean and check your vent system. Something caused it to blow.
If both are clean check that the blower is OK.

This really worked for me. I didn't have a meter so I taped them together and sure enough the dryer worked. No need for a new dryer just a 15.00 part.

Thanks Denman.

The thermal fuse is in the back of the dryer, and white in color, and is about an inch and a half long, and a half inch wide. Tom www.********************************************
