You may have either a bad thermostat control or wiring to the heat element burned in 2. Are you getting power coming out of the control switch when it is on high. If you are, then the element or wiring is bad. If you aren't, then more than likely it is in the control switch. Let me kmow how you do.

Two problems with Whirlpool Dryer


I would suspect the heating element. I bet you are asking why this clown is saying that when you already told him that on high heat it worked fine. SIMPLE! Your heating element is made up of five coils. For low heat your dryer uses two heating elements and for high all five. So if one or two of the heating elements are open and they happen to be the low temp dry setting ones, that would explain it. That model doesn't have the dryness sensor on it (according to my documentation) so the heating element is the most likely cause.
Hope this helps!

I have a Whirlpool dryer model LER4634JQ0. It now takes many cycles to dry the clothers. I checked the vent coming out, it is not clogged. I can reach in and feel a little fan motor, which I assume...


your vent line from the wall to the outside of the house can be clogged
or your you high heat coil is burned out and just the low heat coil is working, when you switch to high, both coils work. or you have a one coil system and the heat selector maybe defective

Please rate/vote the response Thanks

Check the voltage to the switch when turned to high and the power button pushed on. If you are not getting any power there then the setting switch is bad replace it at repairclinic.com

Always in high heat


I am assuming this is an electric dryer.

1) Thermostat may have failed.
2) Element may have broken at one point and shorted to ground.

Please reply your specific model number and I can help further.

WHIRLPOOL DRYER MODEL LEQ8858JQO


Thermostat, High limit and low limit thermostat or even a safety Temp limiter. All three are similar in cost and located on the back inside of the dryer and 1 by the airflow tube under the lint trap.
