Question about Whirlpool LGR7646E Dryer

Whirlpool Slimtwin gas dryer does not get hot but does tumble

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.

Electric Whirlpool dryer won't cool down during drying cycle and even gets hot during air fluff cycle. Replaced thermal fuse and is still the same.


There are two thermostats on my whirlpool model number 857554115010.
Both should be replaced at the same time.
I found a good video on

I bought the parts from them and it worked.

Whirlpool LGN2000JQ2 Dryer will initially light and reach temp normaly, then it will not relight just continue tumbling. Shut off dryer wait a few minutes and restart


I am assuming that it is a gas dryer even though it shows it is an electric. This is a good website

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

Takes the dryer over two hours to dry one load of laundry. It appears to be putting out hot air. When I stop it to check the clothes, the clothes are usually really warm yet still wet. This has been going...


You have a venting problem. Some makes of condo size dryers have a lint screen inside the drum at the back. Check and clean. If not then there might be a screen in the wall or the ceiling of the room the dryer is in. Trace the vent from the dryer to the wall or ceiling. There should be a vent fan in the ceiling. Try asking the condo property management if there is an exhaust fan in the wall that needs cleaning.
