Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
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.
