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.

Dryer won't start. I already replaced the door switch and the thermal fuse. What else could be the problem?
Answer Hello Chris. If the thermal fuse and the door switch are good, you will need to test the timer and the motor on the unit and see which part has the power, but is not working. If there is power to the motor, and it does not run, you will replace the motor in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
If door won't stay shut could it be the door switch assembly?
Answer Hello Andy. No, you will need to order the door latch kit 279570 for the unit.

How do I change the door switch? I just watched a video showing how to change a lesser expensive version of the dryer. I know how to change that switch as I worked for Whirlpool appliances until retiring 10 years ago. I am guessing the top comes up but because of the cost of these appliances I don't want to risk damaging the top. Thanks for your help. GEQ9800PW1
Answer Hello Bob,
The model number you provided came up as invalid. I modified it a bit so it this isn't a GEQ9800PW1, please let us know by re-posting and we will do this thing right. Before beginning, please flip the breaker off so you don't get a shock.
As a model number GEQ9800PW1, the bottom panel will be removed and when the two screws in the bottom of the upper panel is removed, the upper panel will pivot up and the clips will release.
Please let us know if we mis-interpreted the model number, since I know that if we guessed wrong, the procedure is most likely different.
