I have a Whirlpool Dryer LER7646EQO. I need to know how to diagnose the automatic dry-miser feature.


the way this works is you set the timer to say more dry,you start it and the heat comes on,when the dryer reaches temp the heat shuts down and the timer starts to advance,it will move a little until the heat comes on and it stops advancing,dryer heats up and it does this until the clothes are dry,when on timed dry there's a clock motor on the timer and the timer uses the clock motor to count down.this is the difference,now does the timer advance at all,if not you could have a bad timer or the heater element is touching metal and grounding,you can start the dryer on air fluff and see if it gets hot, also try running it on timed dry and see if it advances to off or does it stop at a certain point and doesn't go to off,or if you have a volt meter,pull off the vent line,remove the back panel,remove the wires going to the heating element,set the meter to say 20k ohms,touch the leads together and you should see anything but 1,now touch one lead to one side of the element and the other lead to the metal case that covers the element,if you get any reading other than 1 the element is grounding to the metal case,check both sides like this,also while you have the back open,did you remove the metal duct that the lint filter slides down into,if not do it but you said you changed a gasket there so i'm sure you did this,if you look to the right of the duct you'll see the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat remove them and check them out,if you had that much lint in there they probably are covered with lint also,the cycling thermostat tells the dryer when to cycle when it gets hot and cool.if the heater isn't grounded most likely you have a bad timer,you can run it on timed dry and see if it gets stuck on a certain spot and doesn't fully advance to offhope this helps you out

Dryer Works but does not produce heat


I would first check to see if 240 volts is coming into the machine. The motor runs on 120 the heater need 240. If that is fine remove the rear panel and check the 2 limits and heater on the right hand side for continuity. Here is my video:

My kenmore gas dryer will start if it is cool but once you use it for a while and stop it it will not restart


you have a thermastat going out or bad, its heating up and closing, and not releasing when it cools, Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermostat should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced.

Gas dryer does not provide heat or air


If you don't have heat the timer will not advance in auto dry. The first thing to check is the glow bar ignitor part number 279311.

Whirpool dryer won't heat up


You need to replace the thermal fuse and the timer. A bad timer will over draw a thermal fuse and cause it to blow.

Please remember to unplug the dryer before servicing
