Question about Whirlpool LGR7646E Dryer
Bought a condo which was built in 1994 and assume the dryer is that year. I used the dryer once and it only dryed the first load. Since then I cannot get the dryer to produce any heat on any of the settings. It will tumble but does not dry anything. The dial sometimes will advance by itself from off to on. I cleaned the vents and the lint trap and checked for any blockages. All of them seemed clean and free of blockage.
Most likely it is the heating element, Unplug it, take the back off and you can see if it is bad

A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle between 120 degrees and 170 degrees. Check that the drum seals to make sure the are not worn out.

if no heat , but all else is fine, means heating element needs replacing, most likely accesed from back panel of machine, about 25$ part

did you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into?you still have a block somewhere and sounds like you popped the thermal fuse part 3392519,unplug dryer take off vent line and remove the back panel,take out the 2screws on top of dryer and remove lint filter,on left side remove the 4 screws and remove the duct,clean it out,to the right of it and around 4 inches up from floor you'll see the white thermal fuse,read it out with a meter,also if you have a long vent line from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower and make sure the outside flapper is blowing fully open
