I have a Whirlpool Electric Dryer Model# LER4624BQO.  I used it 2 days ago and it worked fine.  I just put a load of clothes in to dry and it will not come on.  I have checked the circuit breaker, made sure the door was shut all the way, and checked the plug.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank You.

Start with the dryer diagnostics manual:

Check the white plastic thermo-fuse on the rear of the dryer on the vent housing, this will kill the dryer motor if you have a vent restriction problem to the dryer. You could also have a broken door switch but suspect the t-fuse first.

Thank you.  It was working fine one minute then not.  Laundry is multipling faster than bunnies.

Welcome, hope this is the problem, if it is be sure to check the house vent for blockage of air flow from the dryer....;)

Check your door switch, and check your circuit breaker... start with the easy stuff
