Thermostat, High limit and low limit thermostat or even a safety Temp limiter. All three are similar in cost and located on the back inside of the dryer and 1 by the airflow tube under the lint trap.

Admiral Dryer Model #AGD4475TQ No Heat


This is very rare on a gas dryer but I have seen it. If you have already replaced all that other stuff I would say it has to be inside the timer. On one I worked on once I could remove that orange wire and the dryer would function ok so I ordered a new timer, they sent me a bad timer. Same problem. I finally got a working timer after going through a bunch of mess. That fixed it. So if all the other components are working it very well could be the timer.

If its a gas dryer your dryer vent might be plugged up.

That would be the first thing I'd check if it were me and if this is a gas dryer.

Admiral dryer super capacity dryer won't heat up and light doesn't stay on. It happened when we first brought it home years ago and the repair may said to reset some button but I don't kn


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door Switch

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.

Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring

Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

My admiral dryer is not drying as it should - troubleshooting advice?


I love an admiral dryer. Simply a beautiful machine. They do have a few basic problems but whos doesn't. One of the main problems has to do with the 53-0106 plastic blower. It has a flat side to it to keep the blower from slipping but the heat wallers out the hub abd the blower spins. This results in improper air flow. The dryer takes twice as long to dry clothes and gets real hot on top because of poor air circulation. Also a hole could get in the filter and cause lint to build in the filter housing. The lint combined with the loos blower wheel makes a huge ball of lint form in front of the blower. I have some repair photos for various maytag dryers old and new and diff styles showing how to get inside and check all this stuff out. Remove power and clean out the vent to outside also and this sweet little admiral will be all kosher again. Repair photos and stuff: HERE
I have other brands HERE
You say you have an admiral but ler5636p is a whirlpool dryer, anywho I have posted the repair pix for whirlpool HERE
