Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
Fist off open the door and check the door switch,it's a little paddle that the door hits,open the door and look at the top right hand side,if it's there push on it with your finger,if it clicks when you push it in then the switch is good.next you're going to need a meter,pull out the dryer,unplug it and remove the cover where the cord connects to the dryer,plug it back in and make sure you have 240 volts coming into the dryer,if so unplug it again,your lint filter is on top so your parts are in the back of dryer,remove the lint filter and remove the back panel,also pull out the lint filter and remove the two phillips screws in front of it,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer? http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdir...
go here and you can see the parts you have to check with your meter.you'll see part 19 on the diagram and part number 3392519,this is the thermal fuse,look on the left side and you'll see the metal duct that the lint filter slides into,to the right of it and down low you'll see a white piece with two wires going to it,that's the thermal fuse,you have to always remove at least one wire when checking them for continuity,set the meter on say 20k ohms,you'll see a number 1 on the screen,touch the two leeds together and you should see anything but 1,now remove at least one wire off of the fuse and touch the leeds one on each side,if you see 1 the part is bad,anything else the part is good,if the fuse is good move over to the right side and you'll see the heater box or metal duct,you want to check parts 6 and 15 on the diagram,if one of those are bad you replace them with part number 279816 here's a site to change out the 279816 t-stat kit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHYg_I90O... this most likely will be your problem if the thermal fuse was ok but if not check part number 20 on the diagram and this is over near the thermal fuse and is replacement part 3387134.the reason why i asked when was the last time the dryer was taken apart and cleaned is one of these parts go bad from the dryer running to hot and the part goes bad as a safety,remove the four screws on the lint filter duct and if you didn't remove the two phillips screws on top in front of the lint filter take them out to remove the duct,clean it out and vac up any other lint you see,also if the vent line is a long run you can blow it out with a leaf blower,if there's a cage or anything on the outside that the lint can get stuck in remove it or clean it out every few months,the dryer should be taken apart and cleaned at least once every year to 1 1/2 years,if it's gas once a year so you don't have a fire.when you get the back together clean out the front of dyer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGIG8Wo5-N4 go here and see how to take apart. hope this helps,if you need anymore help let me know and hopefully i can help you
