Default Removed pencil. Now it's dead!
Model Number: LET7646AQ2   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


While cleaning the lint trap, a pencil fell into it. (I didn't know that at the time.) When I started the dryer, it the tub immediately came to a stop. I opened the door to turn it off.

I took the top and rear covers off. Found the pencil and replaced the covers. When I tried to start the dryer, it was dead. There seems to be no power coming to the machine. I check my circuit breakers.

Is there some sort of reset on this unit? What should I look for? Thank you.

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL LET7646AQ2 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Did you just look at the breakers if yes: flip the breaker off/on slowly a couple times. Sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
Better yet measure it with a meter. Should be 240 volts L1 to L2.
And 120 volts L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral.

You may have blown the thermal fuse, Item 23 in "Section 3".
Unplug the unit, remove one wire from it and check it with a meter. Should be 0 ohms.

If you do not have a meter you can;
Unplug the unit, remove both wires from the fuse, short them together, tape them up so they cannot short to the frame, plug it in and give it a try.
If it runs replace this fuse ASAP as it is a critical safely device.

I am assuming that when you retrieved♦ the pencil you checked that the blower wheel was not damaged and was still attached properly to the motor.

I found that the black wire on the electrical cord was broken at the terminal. The terminal block was also corroded. I installed a terminal repair kit and a new electrical cord. Only took three trips to three stores to do it! Thank you!
