Whirlpool dryer Model #LEQ9508PWO. When the dryer is on and I open the door, the drum doesn't stop turning. I have to turn the dryer off.
Answer Joe, Unless the dryer door will not remain closed, or "pops" open when there is a load in the tumbler, the door catch 279570 . When you open the door, the dryer should stop running, if it doesn't stop it is usually due to a faulty door switch 3406107 or possibly a shorted wire to the switch. You will need to remove power to the dryer, remove the lint filter and the two screws located under the door. Tghen you'll need a flat blade tool (putty knife) to release the spring clips and raise the top panel to access the door switch assembly.
Hi, Can you tell me if this door latch will work with the Kenmore gas dryer, model #110.71402310? Thanks for your help.
Answer Robin, the door latch kit part number 279570 is not suggested as a replacement for your model. According to the Kenmore model number given you'll need to order door catch part number W10610880 and door strike part number 3403431. Thanks!
Can you tell what door latch kit to order for Kenmore 80 series dryer, model #73812690
Answer Hello Chris,
If we could bother you to check the model number on the units' I.D. tag one more time, there will be three numbers and a period before the number you listed which is necessary to pull part numbers with. Be aware that these three characters may be in a different font. I'm sorry to have to bother you with this and would not if it were not necessary. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
I have a Fridfeadire GLE0332AS1 dryer . It makes a humming sound when trying to turn it on but won't run. Latches don't apear broken and drumm turns fine. Thanks, Ron
Answer Hello Ron. Try turning the drum, with the door switch taped shut, and it humming, and see if it starts and runs. If so, the motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
