HI WHEN I OPEN MY DRYER DOOR, IT KEEP SPINING DO YOU THINK THE DOOR SWITCH WENT BAD?
Answer Hello Mossac. Yes, the door switch is a saftey feature that should shut the dryer off when the door is open. Part number 3406107 is the correct door switch for your model leq8000jq3. Hope this helps.

The start button on my dryer has been buzzing for a while but the dryer still turned on every time we pushed it. Now the button buzzes and the dryer doesn't turn on.
Based on the description it sounds like the push to start switch may have failed. You will want to check the thermal fuse on the blower housing for continuity and the door switch for continuity to make sure that they are good. If good then the switch would be the problem.
I would like to test the door switch. The switch does not have NC or NO markings? Can you help with this? Thanks
Answer Hello Way,
This is actually two switches in one. The wire that is on the opposite side of the switch should be the common. Testing from this terminal to the other two connections should show continuity on one and no electrical contact to the other. Activating the switch should reverse the readings, (in other words, the one that had continuity with no resistance should read open and the other will read no resistance).
