Whirlpool supreme LER7646EQ2 won't heat up


The heating element is no good. They break after years of use as they heat up and cool down over and over, they wear out. The part is cheap and yes it is easy to replace. Turn your dryer around, and take off the screws to a short piece of metal that has "vents" in it. It should be sticking out a bit compared to the rest of the dryer back. normally 2 or 4 screws holding it there. You'll see the element. Just pull it out, take it to the appliance shop or Sears and get another element. Go home, stick it back in there and reconnect the panel you took off. Cheap part, simple fix...you'll be surprised how well it heats after that.

Whirlpools Duet GEW9200LW . . . heats up but never drys clothes completely


Assuming your lint filter and ductwork is clear of excess lint, the problem is likely the high temperature limit thermostat. This is cheap and easy to fix.

Good luck.

The dryer stopped heating, The fluff air cycle still works but the heating cycles have stopped working. Is there an easy fix, or do I send it to the scrap metal yard?


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

Whirlpool Gas Dryer Model #LGR7648KQ0 has no heat - I cleaned out the vent (it was pretty well clogged!) and then replaced the Fixed highlimit thermostat, the thermal fuse and the dryer cycling thermostat...


The problem is the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html this will walk you thru checking them. They are inexpensive and easy to replace.

My dryer is blowing out cold air only... any suggestions?


Your heating element is out. Cheap part. Easy to replace. Unplug from power source. Remove the back cover. You will see the wires going to it. Just disconnect the wires and get one from sears parts department.

Whirlpool dryer had been working just fine then suddenly it is not heating at all


** UNPLUG a dryer before attempting ANY repairs. Lethal!
A dryer heater is controlled by the timer, a thermostat and a high-heat safety switch. The thermostat and safety switch are mounted on the housing around the heater.
Most likely - If the heater is blown, a visual inspection inside the heater housing will see a loose heater wire.
Next likely - Thermostat problems occur. I replace the thermostat and high-heat safety if either are suspect. Cheap, easy fix.
Least likely - Controller failure. This can be expensive ($80 - $400) so consider if you want to spend the money. A controller is actually fairly easy to change. Buy a new knob as you are likely to break it without experience and special tools.

No heat in tumble drier - I've changed the two stats and the heater


First cleaning out the vent inside and also your hose vent. If its old, replace it with new one. Cheap and easy so far. Second could be a bad gas valve or solenoid coils. Valve should be replace by a licensed repair person. Could be pricey. If its the solenoid coils it's a cheaper easy self fix.

Dryer stopped heating


OK, there are two likely scenarios, depending on whether your dryer is electric or gas. If it is an electric dryer, an open heater element is the most likely cause (change left in pockets is notorious for blowing out heating elements).

If your dryer is gas, the most likely cause is an open ignitor. Whirlpool, GE, and several other makes use a resistor type of ignitor which will burn open with time. It's an easy fix, easy to get to and readily available at most appliance parts stores.
