Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
I smelled burning plastic while dryer was running. I pulled the plug and found one of the terminals was burnt and the plastic around the terminal was melted and black. I replaced the cord and turned the dryer on and within minutes the same thing happened to the new plug. I think the 220 socket has a loose wire. Thanks in advance for your response.
You are right. There is not a good connection somewhere. When you say your replaced the cord, did you also replace the plug? Make sure all fittings are tight. Where it is melting, this is where the problem probably is. You can also check the receptacle and see that the wires to it are tight as well. There is a build up of heat or resistance in that area tha tis causing your problem. let me know how you do. Good luck.
