If the door switch was a 3 terminal device, and all three terminals had a wire going to them, did you get the NO and NC wires connected to the right place?

You should be able to follow the circuit that can be found on the back service panel or inside the control head.

Let me know what you find or if you have any more questions.

Whirlpool dryer doesnt heat, time and shut off when you open the door


if you have it on time dry and it doesn't count down the timer is bad but it should stop when you open the door unless you have a broken door switch too,just open the door and push in on the switch with your finger,it should make a clicking sound,if not the door switch is also broke,if you have the timer on auto or more or less then it won't move without heat.on auto the heat comes on when the dryer reaches temp. the heat shuts off and the timer will advance a little,then the heat starts again and the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry by using a sensor instead of time.

I have a Whirlpool LER4634PQ1 it was working just fine then all of a sudden the dryer just keeps running the knob on the dryer doesn't move and the air isn't warm. Any suggestions on what to s


there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

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.

No heat/wont automatically shut off.whirlpool ler4600pqo . timer runs down to about almost finished,but stops timer at that point,will continue running until opening door or turning to off manually


The unit will continue to run as long as there are wet clothes in it. You will need to check the heating element and the two wire fuse on the top part of the heater housing. If either one have no continuity through them, you will need to replace the one that doesn't. This will fix your problem.

Whirlpool Ele. dryer Model # LEL8858EQ1


You have a bad timer that is allowing your heating element to come on.

UNPLUG YOUR DRYER......NOW!!!! BEFORE YOU BURN THE HOUSE DOWN.

Call a whirlpool tech or service company to come out and service your dryer.

Do not use until serviced.

Whirlpool dryer won't run


This sounds like something may be mis-wired...or there may be a defective switch contact in the timer or one of the other controls. If the heater element comes on with the blower motor not running, it should quickly overheat and trip one of the thermal shutoff switches.
