Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Relatively new dryer takes several cycles to dry normal loads

I have a Whirlpool electric dryer Model: LER 4634PQ0 that has always taken a long time to dry clothes.

It didn't bother me much but now I am renting the house to someone who is nagging me, so I had the exhaust (to the wall) proffessionally cleaned. It still takes about two hours to dry a normal load. I checked the element and it is working and the clothes are very warm.

Is there something else that I can try?

    Measure the temperature of the air as it discharges the dryer. I will need to check what that temperature should be, but, depending on what we find out, you may have a faulty temp stat or limit stat, since you say the element is good.

Check the lint trap all the way down to vent, then make sure that the vent is not crushed in anyway. Depending on the way the person cleaned it they could have actually caused more of a clog

Electric dryer heats but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Check your electrical power going to the dryer at where you plug the plug in at the receptical. and make sure you have 120 volts on each leg, it sounds like you may have one leg with 120 volt and the other leg with no voltage. I hope this helped. Please rate me, Thanks

My whirlpool duet electric dryer needs several cycles to dry normal load of clothes, dryer is 6 yrs old. Is it the heating element or could it be something else?


Initial reaction is yes, probably.

Second guess would be the switch.

The switch tells the dryer what to do, and if the heating element is good, it will do it.

Test the switch quickly first, and if it checks out, look at the element.

It takes several auto cycles on regular heat to dry a load of laundry when I think it should only take one. What's wrong?


first, check your exhaust, you have to make sure there is no buildup at all inside it. this is the most common problem to cause this. if lint gets backed up, there is a sensor that shuts down the heating element after only a few seconds. hope this helps

Clothes are taking 3 cycles to dry and cooling light on front wont shut off


The vent is clogged.  To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally.  If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.  
The cooling light will always stay on during the run.  When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.
