I have a Whirlpool LER3624PQ and it'll turn on but there is no heat. I checked to make sure there was not a clog in the exhaust and all is clear. I took the back off to look at the fuses, I have no clue what is what back there and do not have a manual. Any guidance would be great!

Check that the heating element is working. Then check the exhaust flue of dryer to make sure that it is not clogged. If it is the clothing will stay damp and the room housing the dryer will get hot and muggy.
how old is it? One thing i run into a lot, is that the exhaust vent may be clogged.
if that is the case, clothes tend not to dry due to lack of air circulation. And the heating element in the dryer will not kick on. That vent is typically located in the back lower panel of the dryer. And is hooked up to a vent hose. check the hose for debris (lent) remove anything you might find. also disconnect where the hose meets the dryer, and check dryer portion as well. If nothing is clogged, then you may have a bad heating element.
It is probably clogged in the exhaust where the lint tube connects to your wall/house. Inside the wall can get very clogged with humidity and lint creating a goo that blocks the air from escaping. Disconnect the dryer from the wall, put on some rubber gloves and reacg up into the wall and you can pull out globs of old wet lint, coins, and other junk trapped in there. Secondly, check on the outside of your house where the exhaust is released and make sure it's not clogged there too.
The dryer is fine. Don't waste money on any parts. The problem is the exhaust is clogged or restricted from behind the dryer to the outside of your home. Pull dryer from wall and remove exhaust from wall. Get an electric leaf blower and stick inside wall exhaust. Push dryer back against it to hold it in place. Turn the blower on and go outside to watch every thing fly out of the exhaust. Have fun and good luck.
Sounds like a clogged exhaust duct or vent. If not venting properly, most dryers will turn the heat off, for safety reasons.
Go for the easy fix first. Before removing your exhaust ducts from the dryer, look for any kinks that may cause blockage. Clean out the duct of any lint or water that may have accumulated. Check the vent on the outside of the house and make sure that its not clogged and opening properly.
Remove the back and on the right side is the heater assembly. Attached to this assembly is a safety thermal fuse at the top and a heat limiter thermostat at the bottom. The fuse, thermostat or heater may have failed. The MOST common reason for any of these parts to fail is a clogged or restricted exhaust. Be sure to clean/inspect the exhaust system or the dryer will fail again.
there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace
