whirlpool dryer ler7648pq1 dead

4 posts in this topic

i've had a mystery with this one.  it does nothing and the first time I took everything apart and checked what i thought was everything, put it back together and it worked.  now after several loads it's dead again.  The thermal fuse is ok, all thermal cutoffs test ok, there's 120v going to the start relay, the relay continuity tests out (even jumpered it) 0 ohms on the switch and about 1800 ohms on the coil,  door switch works.  Any ideas

Does the Drum Light work ?

 

check for 120v at the Start Relay,

between the Blue wire and the Pink/Black wire, when the Start Button is pushed.

 

If no 120v, the check between:

the Blue wire and chassis (ground), when the Start Button is pushed.

 Did you recheck the thermal fuse after it stopped working the first time? If not, check it again.
