Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
I have a Whirpool dryer, which was purchased about 4-5 years ago. It gets good use, considering we are a family of 5, including three small children. We realized over a year ago that the buzzer on the timer quit working. More recently though (within the past couple months), we first noticed that the dryer is turning off on it's own, before the set amount of time has been reached. Next, I noticed that instead of just having to quickly press the start button to start a drying cycle, we've been having to hold the start button in for several seconds. Finally, this morning I bounced up a load of clothes for about 15 minutes, then went to start drying a new load, and it wouldn't start. At first, it sounded like it was going to start, but instead of starting up after holding in the start button for several seconds, this time it suddenly quit working all together; no longer making any sound or movement. I left it alone for about 20 minutes, then made another attempt to start it, but got the same result as before. Only, this time all sound/movement stopped even sooner. I removed the back panel, and all wires seem to be attached securely. The vent is cleaned every other load, without fail. Can someone help me, please?!?
