    With the dryer plugged in and the switch and timer turned to on the dryer does not work. I hear a humming noise from the console and then i open the dryer door. The humming noise stops and then starts again when i close the dryer door. Does this prove that the door ajar switch is working as it should? I have tested the thermal fuses and they work fine.
    For model number LEC7848DZ0
    Hi Terry, Thank you for your question. If the dryer is not working, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the thermal fuse, the internal bias thermostat, the drive motor with pulley, the dryer door actuator spring/lever, the push-to-start switch, the door catch and the lid switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    The dryer quit starting. I can hit the switch and i hear it click but no start. Sounds like the start switch is working but it will not start. The timer works as well. Any thoughts?
    For model number WED5550SQ0
    Hello Shawn, thank you for inquiring. For this symptom you will want to consider either the Thermal Fuse part PS11741460, the 3 Wire Door Switch part PS11741701, or the Internal-Bias Thermostat part PS11741405. We hope this helps.

    Where does spring go on the inside of the on and off switch?
    Hello William, That is a good question but unfortunately, we do not currently have installation instructions for the internal parts of the switch. For more specialized assistance or to speak with someone about this, I would suggest calling the manufacturer of the appliance directly. Hope this helps!

    For model number 3398095
    Hi Jeff, Thank you for your question. There is a video on our website listed with the part that you can reference on how to install it. The video is listed just under the photograph of the part and it should show you how to connect the wires. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    My switch that went out also buzzed when the cycle was done. Will this replacement switch still have it buzz?
    For model number LER6611LQ0
    Hello Mary, thank you for your question. The buzzer is a separate part. It is PartSelect Number: PS11743788. If the start switch is the only part that has failed, the buzzer will not have to be replaced. I hope this helps!

    Timer stuck at cooling down(20min) and will not shut off. Also, when manual shut off switch is pressed, the dryer will not turn off. It does turn on with manual press button. The dryer does turn off when the door is opened. It does have heat and works fine. Replaced the following and still the same problem: Thermostat, internal-bias Part number: Wp3387134 Found in: Bulkhead parts (see item #9) thermal fuse Part number: Wp3392519 Found in: Bulkhead parts (see item #7) 'm' series new style coil kit Part number: 279834 Found in: 8318272 burner assembly (see item #13) 8318272 burner assembly (see item #14) paul
    For model number WGD5510VQ1
    Hello Paul, thank you for your question. If the thermostat and internal-bias has been replaced I would suggest replacing the timer in the unit. I hope this helps!

        Replace bad timer
        opened the back of the control panel, removed the timer. Looked for damage, saw none but replaced because it was not working. The wirers did not match up extact. But enough matched the wire and terminal code that the two left attached to the two remaining. After it was plugged back in and tryed it worked!

        Dryer would not start. However, there was a humming throughout while plugged in.
        Very easy to access all 3 parts. Was using YouTube in conjunction with video installation. Bypassed door ajar switch which is readily available via video online.. You do need to cut wires near switch end but does not affect the other side that plugs into factory connector. I figured if it works I'll just order a new one. However, it was fine. Very simple to test almost all other parts if you have a volt meter to check resistance. There was too many prongs to test pushbutton start switch so I ordered one and a thermostat. Parts arrived in a few days. I also ordered a new door ajar switch incase one of the other reasonably priced parts fixed it. I first replaced the push start switch which was very easy. It did not fix my issue. So I than replaced the thermostat. Even though it was very uncommon to fail according to the %of people having that as a cure, it fixed mine. So since the start switch was not returnable because I opened bag and installed it, I left it in and saved the old one. Since it was fixed I went ahead and replaced the door ajar switch instead of leaving it Bypassed. All in all...took no more than 1 1/2 hours and that includes testing everything opening up everything and putting everything back together. Very easy.

        The dryer would not turn on.
        Disconnect the dryer from the outlet.
        Removed the upper back plate from the dryer with a 1\4 inch
        nutdriver.
        Removed the knob from the start switch.
        Disconnected the electrical connections from the back of the switch.
        Rotated the switch slightly clockwise to release the locking tab and removed the switch.
        To install the switch place the switch tab slightly to the right of the tab insert.
        Rotate the switch assembly counter clockwise until the locking tab locks in place.
        Reconnect the electrical connectors.
