Whirlpool dryer LER8648PWO won't heat

As it says my dryer won't give off any heat and it won't shut off automatically.

For what it's worth I found my 65lbs. son using it as a hiding place during hide and go seek right before the problem occurred.

I appreciate your help...

Oh boy. First you need to open the unit to expose the heating area. When he was in the drum he must have disloged a thermostat control. You'll have to find it and fix it. Also check the door switch.

Whirlpool dryer overheats element high heat all heat settings


First check the heating element for short to frame. If it is not shorted remove the filter chute and clear it out. The control thermostat has 4 wires. 2 small wires come from the timer and power up a small heater inside the control thermostat making it shut down faster for perm press and knit cycles. Over time this bimetal inside the control stat won't shut down fast enough or not at all. If it won't shut down then the element will gl;ow reed and the base 250 stat on the heater chamber will shut down. If it fails to do so then the smaller one up top will trip at 300f. If it fails to trip or the filter chute is clogged the fuse skinny white plastic thing next to the control tstat will met and shut down operation.
Here is my HOME MOVIE ROPER DRYER NO HEAT
It shows the various components and how to check.

My general electric heavy duty automatic electric dryer won't heat. Is there anything to try before replacing heater?


go to your fuse box and try replacing the 2 fuses for the dryer circuit or if you have a circuit breaker box shut off the breaker for the dryer and turn it back on and try the dryer again. I used to be an electrician and found double pole circuit breakers that have only one side tripped. alot of 220volt electric dryers use one circuit for the tumbler motor and the other circuit for the heating element

Dryer timer won't shut off at end of cycle. Dryer runs, but no heat. It is a Whirlpool model number LGR4634JQ2.


Since you say that the dryer runs but have no heat, plus the timer won't shut off the odds are the timer is bad. The timer would tell the burner when to be on and when to shut down.

Our Whirlpool Dryer Will not heat at all and not


Your timer may be the cause of both problems. Not cycling and no heat.
Whirlpool makes a excellent dryer and is worth repairing. Replace the timer first. If you still have a heat problem most of the other parts are around $30.

Dryer wont work!


A couple suggestions: (1) The switch in the front may be bad. It's the switch that turns the dryer off when you open the door. (2) Make sure the door latch keeps the door shut. If it is worn and the door isn't shut tight, the switch will not let it start. Hope this helps.
