Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
Dryer turns off when door opened. Heat settings seem correct. Dryer just won't turn off at the end of any cycle.
look for a cool down thermostat on the fan body. this thermostat opens on cool, and is in the motor circuit, not the heater circuit as the other thermostats are. After the timer switches off the heater and motor, this thermostat keeps the motor running until the temperature drops below ~45C, drawing unheated air through the dryer. when they fail they weld closed and do not switch off
If knob does not move, there is likely a stripped nylon gear in the stepper motor for the timer
timer motors cost $~14 if available in your area, and attach to the timer body by two screws
rebuilt timers can be purchased at many parts stores, labelled as almost anybrand as many are interchangeable $~40
new timers are around $~60
