Whirlpool Electric Dryer Won't Start
« on: December 21, 2010, 06:40:50 PM »
Thermal Fuse Bad
Door Switch Bad
Changed both-motor won't turn
Check continuity on high /low sensors good
Timer seems to run when start switch is pressed
How do I check if Motor/Centrifugal Switch is bad?

Model LER7646EQ1

Sounds like a short to take out both. Check timer with a meter and see if contacts are open.Remove power ,remove 1 wire from timer and check continuity across contacts.
