    You will have to run the tests in the manual.It should tell you what to do if the diagnostic mode can not be entered. If you remove the top the tech manual should be under there.There are screws along the back edge of the top to remove it.You need to put the machine into its diagnostic mode.It should give a code as to what is the problem.The tech manual will tell you how to do this. Hope this helped..Happy New Years Tim

Lights come on, press start and nothing ..


Start Switch is bad, When they go out it leave's a open circuit and all light will come on but no action.
After the circuit is closed then it tells the dryer to start cause the circuit activates both the timer and the motor.

Good Luck

Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

Dryer has power - we can hear the timer ticking and the light comes on when the door is opened, but when we push the start button nothing happens model # leq9558ko 8 yrs old electric


does the light close when the door is closed??? poosible that the door switch has gone bad. or a bad thermal fuse behind the unit is also a common culprit of this.. its a white thermostat on back of unit behind the panel (-----------------------) approx this long ad white,,
