Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Several problems ... now no power at all!

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?!?

Samsung dryer makes loud noise; just started


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'purchased approx. 2 yrs ago. always had trouble'?

Even whilst under guarantee/warantee?

I need to explain our situation.The washing machine forum is just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing mostly mechanical and electrical/electronic problems and giving guidance on these for free on the web. In addition the members are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer of washing machines or detergents whatsoever so we have to be carefull what we say;-0)


Sorry but all I can suggest is that you call your local Samsung service agent to see if it can cure your problems. You do not want to go to the expense of purchasing a different washer!

If this has clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I keep getting an error message on my Whirpool Washer/Dryer AWG349/4 - error is E05


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In general Whirlpool's Error 05 points to an NTC failure.
'NTC' stands for 'Negative Temperature Co-efficient' or water temperature thermostat in real terms!
One way of hopefully getting around the problem is first to ensure the washer is empty then pour the contents of a boiling kettle into it. That can sometimes kick the device into correct action. It's worth a try anyway before having to call in the repair man ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I HAVE A 32" VIZIO LCD I PURCHASED 2 YEARS AGO.


You should buy a sodering kit and remove the buldging capacitors yourself. Find a local electronics store, I used Radioshack, and see if they can match the capacitors. I had this happen with my Samsung lcd about a year ago and just help another friend with the same issue yesterday. The sodering is not as hard as you'd think. The capacitors should be under $5 v. paying a few hundred for the power board.

No power is there a fuse in the dryer. The power is ok. Could it be the plug? It is at my summer home it is a stackable purchased about 3 years ago. I don't have the model. It was purchased at Lowes


There is a fuse in the dryer, its called a high limit sensor. If the dryer gets too hot the high limit blows like a fuse and saves your house.
Make double sure you have proper power at the outlet before you tear into the machine.
Good Luck

L G DRAYER , HEATER NOT WORKING


Had the same problem on a whirpool drayer. Get our multimeter and check which heat fuse is broken. Take that one out and throw it in the floor until you have conductivity again. Clean drayer vents and heater. This worked for me, good luck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuFQOuSlzlw

Defective remote control


Since it's been a few years since your purchase, it's most likely your warranty has expired. You may want to consider purchasing a universal remote to replace your current non-functioning remote.

Whirpool duet front load washer door trouble


I have stacked ours too, though after 5 years we have not had any issues with the pressure. I would suggest checking the screws holding the hinge in place as they may have loosened or been tightened with the door not properly lined up.
