Whirlpool Dryer won't Start
« on: June 04, 2008, 07:19:16 AM »

Model Number: LER5636EQ3 icon, this dryer stopped in the middle of a drying cycle and would not restart. This dryer uses a thermal fuse mounted to the blower housing to open up the motor circuit in the event of a prolonged overheat condition. The primary cause of this failure is usually a restricted or blocked vent, so anytime you replace this fuse, make sure your vent is clear. After doing a quick voltage check of the fuse and measuring 115vac across the two terminals (measuring 0vac would indicate a good fuse) this fuse needed to be replaced.  Now it starts and runs a full cycle.
