For Whirlpool Dryer Push to Start Switch (Part Number: AP3080767)

The push to start button doesn't start the dryer. The heater element comes on and off when I manually turn it. I don't have a light in the dryer when I open the dryer door, just a black lever like thing on the top part when closing the door clicks.

Jose for Model Number LER4634JQ1

ANSWER Hello Jose, If the dryer starts when you hit the start switch then turns off when you release the switch then it would be a bad centrifugal switch on the motor and motor would need to be replaced. If it does nothing then you would want to do a continuity test on the thermal fuse to make sure that it is good. If no continuity then replace the thermal fuse.
