Question:

Won't Start, been reading some,what fuses are they talking about? I replaced door switch and new door latch still does not start.

Joe for model number leq9858pw0
Answer:

Hi Joe, Thank you for the question. The fuse on your model number is called the Thermal Fuse. This thermal fuse is designed for use in dryers. It is a safety mechanism that stops the flow of electricity to the heating element when a dryer overheats. When this fuse is faulty, your dryer will not start or it will not heat properly. This is a one-time fuse, meaning it cannot be re-set. It must be replaced when there is no longer continuity between the terminals. This replacement part features two 3/16 inch terminals, and is sold individually. It attaches to the blower wheel housing. Blown fuses can be caused by clogged dryer vents. We recommend checking to make sure all of the vents are clear when you perform this repair. Hope this helps!

Question:

I push the start button, and the dryer starts, but it would only run for a couple of seconds. After trying to start it several times, it wouldn't start at all until you could hear a tiny click sound from the start switch. After the tiny click sound in the start switch, i would have to hold the start switch in for the unit to run. Even then, it would shut off after a few seconds. I temporarily bypassed the thermal fuse to see if the behavior of the dryer changed, but it did the same thing. I suspect the problem is the start switch. Your thoughts?

Mark for model number WED5530SQ0
Answer:

Hi Mark, Thank you for your question. I would agree. I suggest testing your switch with a multimeter to see if that is indeed the part that is causing you your issues. You may also want to test your door switch as well. If your door switch has failed, your machine would not start at all. So that could be what is stopping your start switch from engaging. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair!

Dryer would not start.

Hard part was to figure out which part was bad. Checked out all thermo OL and fuses. The start button was only thing left. To change, take off back cover. Pull off knob from front. Pull off wire connector. From the back, pull back the top locking tab and rotate switch 25 degrees. Part fits into a square hole. Reassemble.

Dryer kicking off

It takes longer to get the dryer out in the open to work on it than to do the repair.

The dryer would not run.

After checking the temperature safeties, I replaced the Push-To-Start switch. This did not solve my problem, so I replaced the Timer Switch assembly, which did solve my problem. Both switches are very simple to replace. Unplug the dryer, use your nut driver to remove the 6 screws holding the back control cover. For the Start switch, remove the control knob, remove the 2 screws holding it it. Unplug the wires, turn the switch housing 1/4 turn clockwise, and remove it from the opening. Reverse the process to install the new switch. For the Timer Assembly, just a bit trickier. Remove the knob, remove the 2 screws holding the assembly. Unlike the Start switch, the Timer Assembly has multiple wires. Pull the old timer assembly out, and, one-by-one, move wires from the old Assembly to the new Assembly, being sure to land them on the proper post. Once you have done this, return the Assembly to the mounting hole. A very simple repair. Even though I spent $160 chasing the problem, I still came out cheaper than calling a repairman.
