Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
Gets way to hot. cleaned everything but no change. the automatic setting 4 dryer quit working. could the timer b causing all this?
Start with the vent, make sure it's not kinked or squished behind the machine and that the outside vent is not clogged with lint. You should feel air blowing freely to the outside.
If the vent is ok, turn the timer to any on position without starting it. Wait 10-20 seconds and then check if there's heat inside the dryer.
If yes, the element has a short and therefore always stays on. Replace it.
If no, run the dryer for a few minutes and listen for the clicking of the relay which cycles the element.
If there is no clicking sound, check the hi limit thermostat & thermal cutoff for continuity and replace if necessary.
If those seem ok, it could be the motor (centrifugal switch inside) or the timer (shorted contact).
