Question and Answers


My Whirlpool electric dryer (Model # LER6848AW2) will not start.


You could have a blown thermal fuse or a number of other failures that would prevent the dryer motor from running. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check that thermal fuse first. The first image below shows a wiring diagram for your dryer with the drive motor circuit traced in blue. The thermal fuse is circled in red. The second image shows the physical location of that fuse on the blower housing at the back of the dryer. After unplugging the dryer , remove the back panel to access that fuse. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to test that fuse using a volt/ohm meter: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that thermal fuse is blown, it will need to be replaced. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the fuse is 3392519. Here is a direct link for that part: Thermal Fuse . Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components and replacing that fuse. NOTE: If that fuse was blown, I recommend that you check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home for a restriction as shown in that repair video.

If that thermal fuse is okay, you could have a bad drive motor, a failed timer or a wiring problem in that circuit that would prevent the motor from running. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
