Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
Kenmore model 96284100 - Cleaned all venting ducts, vaccumed instide of dryer and cleaned internal lint trap. Could it be a fuse or heating element and how do I check these?
Check the thermal cut-off, the thermostat, and the heating element. Most times one of the tree is the culprit.
I have seen a bad timer cause the no heat problem a few times but 99% of the time it is one of the three I mentioned.
If you change the thermal cut-off make sure you get both the cut-off and the thermostat. A stuck T-stat will take out a cut-off in a big hurry.

The first thing to check is the fuses or breakers in your homes fuse box. If this fuse is blown, it is possible for your dryer to spin but not produce heat. If you've checked the fuses and they are not blown, the next possible cause is the heating element.
To check the heating element, move the back panel of the dryer. You'll need a volt/ohmmeter to check the element terminal. Locate the element and set the volt/ohmmeter on the RX-1 scale. Remove one lead from the element and then place one probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the terminal of the element. Place the other probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the remaining terminal of the element. Look for a continuity reading of the volt/ohmmeter of approximately 2-5 ohms. If there is no continuity reading, the heating element is defective and should be replaced.
Also clean the lint filter every time you use the dryer. Even if the lint filter is cleaned after every load, lint will still accumulate around the dryer's moving parts, the exhaust duct and vent. Each year inspect the vent pipe and vent cover operation. Disconnect the exhaust duct and remove lint from the internal exhaust pipe, the duct and the vent. Make sure the duct has no kinks, where lint and moisture can build-up.
Turn off the power; remove the front and rear panels and vacuum out the lint from around the motor and idler. Poor air flow uses more energy and can cause lint build-up in the internal ducting, leading to a fire hazard.
