First of all if you have fuses check for one of the fuses being open, if circuit breakers be sure they are ok. Next check for 240 volts to the heating element, if you have that and no heat replace the heater

Whirlpool electric dryer LER5620KQ1. won't heat up timer does not advance


Same problem with my Whirlpool Dryer: Model LER4634EZ2 which stopped heating. I checked the coils that was "OK" then I checked the fuse that was "OK" I replaced the Thermal Fuse and High Limit Thermostat then after starting the dryer the heat came on ... problem solved NO.... the dryer just kept running and running until I opened the dryer door. Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

My dryer is not heating. Seeems to be running fine except every few minutes makes a churning type noise and there is no heat. We cleaned the lint trap and the exhaust hose. Is this an expensive repair?...

My Frigidaire dryer has no heat. It was working fine last week and I could look inside and see it was ''red'' around where it was heating from the back part. 1 day later, no heat & no ''red'' ring in...


Check your breaker box. Dryer will run on 120 volts but will not heat without a full 240 volts. If that's not your problem, it's best to hire someone. I only say that because this brand of dryer is not easy to work on.

No heat


While your model number is not listed on the Service Manual at the link below, you will find information on how to check out the heater on page 8-6.

Good luck

Will not heat


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
