Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Question about your response to, "i have a whirlpool dryer and it takes 3 cycles to dry a large load of clothes."

You responded in detail to a person that posted that it takes 3 cycles to dry clothes. I too had that problem, but now my cheap Whirlpool dryer is not heating at all. I notice that the timer is not moving. Could it too be that I need to clean the vents? Or do I need to change the top part (is that called a console?) of the dryer?

Also, I have changed the plug on my washer and dryer before, but I don't know that much about dryers. Is this something that I can tackle myself? Or do I need to call a repair guy?

If your vent was plugged and now you have no heat, then the thermal limit has probably failed.
you should be able to replace this yourself.
if you have a top lint filter, then the limit is in the back and mounted on the metal can housing with the heating element inside it. there are 2 round thermostats that have 2 wires on each. one of these is probably why you have no heat.
if you have a front lint filter, then the limits are inside the bottom and behind the access panel on the right hand side. same location on the can and wiring.
make sure to unplug the unit before you take any panels off first.

How do you dry clothes in this machine please


A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

My extra large capacity Whirlpool dryer does not dry in one cycle. Even if I only put a small load it takes at least 3 cycles to dry


There maybe an air flow issue. With the dryer on check the air flow from the exterior location of your home. There should be a good flow of warm/hot air coming out. If not the inside of the dryer may be full of lint.

Whirpool dryer takes 3 cycles to dry clothes


Hi, The first thing to check is the venting to the outside. Make sure it is free of lint and that it is not pinched at all.
If this is a gas dryer, there could be a problem with the coils on top of the gas valve.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Relatively new dryer takes several cycles to dry normal loads


Check the lint trap all the way down to vent, then make sure that the vent is not crushed in anyway. Depending on the way the person cleaned it they could have actually caused more of a clog

My whirlpool duet dryer is taking 3 cycles to dry????


have you checked your lint trap to make sure that it is clean after every load? Also the lint vent to the outside may be clogged and will not let the dryer vent like it should. This is dangerous. So check and replace if needed.
