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.

When I press the power on button dryer does not go on. Work earlier but went to restart and nothing.
You will want to access the back of the unit and test the thermal fuse for continuity. If there is no continuity then you will need to replace the thermal fuse. If the fuse is blown then you will want to check the venting to the outside of the home as this could cause the thermal fuse to blow. Also test the light switch to make sure that it is good. A continuity test can also be done on the light switch.
How do I remove the top of a Whirlpool dryer in order to replace the door switch, the lint panel is in the door.
Answer Hello Rose. You remove the toe panel by releasing the clips with a flat blade. Then remove the screws off the bottom of front panel and pull outward to remove the panel and replace the door switch. Make sure the power is off on the unit.

tHE DRYER DOES NOT TURN OFF WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED.
Answer Dock, Yes, the door switch assembly for the model number you supplied is 3406107. You'll need to remove power to the dryer, remove the two(2) screws under the lint filter door. Using a putty knife or other flat blade tool, release the hidden hold down clips located in the seam between the top and front panel, and raise and prop up the top. With the door open, you'll need to remove the two(2) small Phillips head screws that secure the switch to the front panel door opening.
Can I use dryer door switch with 2 wire to replace broken dryer door switch with 3 wire?
Answer Hello mr hard steelwater. Yes, but the light inside the dryer will not work if you do so. If your model does not have a light, then the 2 wire is all you need.
I watched your instructional video but my Kenmore Elite, model # 110.66944500 does not have the lint trap as shown in video but is inside the door. Is there a video that show how to open the top of this model dryer? My dryer does not shut off & interior light does not come when opened during the cycle.
Answer Hello Gregg,
Most of these are raised with a paint scraper/putty knife. There are clips about three inches from the sides under the front of the main top. When depressed, you will be able to raise the top. Be sure the unit is dis-connected from its' power supply before raising the main top to prevent an electrical shock.
