Question and Answers

Q:

I need to find out what other parts I need to check on my clothes dryer

A:

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your dryer model LEQ8000JQ1, I will be glad to assist you. Based on your description, my understanding is that the dryer will not come on and run. The next things to check are the thermal fuse located on the back of the blower housing and the door switch located on the front panel of the dryer. Both of these components will cause the issue you have described. _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product_I hope this helps, if you need more help reply with added details and I will be happy to respond. Here is a link to Sears Parts Direct.  If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Service Ron H.

Hi Ron! Thank you so much for your advice. I did replace both the door switch and the thermal fuse. The dryer is now working! I am concerned though because the clothes smell like (burned clothes or smoke). Also, I don't hear the ticking on the dial when it's counting down to shut off. I don't know if this is just because the parts are new and maybe I'm not suppose to hear the ticking. I know Sears is waiting for me to tell them that the new Timer is not defective. I hope it's not. I also hope any of this makes sense to you.

A:

I must assume when you say latch that you mean door switch. If the door stays closed and latched then the door catch and door strike is Okay. In order to access and replace the door switch the top panel must be removed. The top can be hinged open like the hood of a car.

To raise top:

  • Disconnect the power cord from the power source.
  • Pull the lint filter screen out
  • Remove the two screws which was hidden by the lint filter.
  • Use a thin putty knife to slip in between the top panel and front panel where the two meet. (See image below).
  • While pushing inwards on the clip lift that corner of the top and repeat steps for the clip on the other corner. (See image below). I do not believe you will have to remove the front panel in order to remove and replace the door switch. The door switch is part #3406107 and is available at Sears Parts Direct .
