Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
HI. thanks for the question. the motor seems to be at fault here. did you clean the venting from the dryer to the outside. , did you clean the lint inside the dryer. if not do that, thanks.

The element is controlled by thermostats mounted inside the back of the dryer on the air exit box. There is also a contact on the motor that makes when the motor is running. Any of these could cause the problem. Try a different heat cycle, this may help narrow it down.

if the dryer runs fine for the first 15 to 30 minutes then no flame you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve.when the coils heat up they fail when they're on there way out.just remove the two phillips screws,take off the cover and you'll see the coils,change them out watch out on the larger coil there's a metal sleeve that needs to stay on the post,if you don't see it look inside the old coil,if it's in it push it out and slide it back on the post and then slide the coil on,plug the harness back on put the cover back and reinstall the two screws,let me know how you make out,also while your in ther vac out the dryer,you should clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean out the vent line,i use a leaf blower to blow out the line if it's a long run,do this once a year so you don't have a fire and the dryer will last longer,just like an oil change on your car.good luck

I had the same problem. I replaced the thermistor,heating element and another part and still didn't correct problem. i finally had a friend come check it and believe it or not it was the 30 amp fuse in my fuse panel of the house.Come to find out the dryer will run and everything works like it should on 1/2 of the 220 plug but the other half runs the heating element.Both fuses must be good. I replaced the 30 amp round fuse and it works and heats perfect. I hope this helps you and saves you some time and money.
