Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Dryer # LER3624EQ1. I replaced two of the thermal switchs that went out because the fan quit. Now after replacing them the timer wouldnt turn off the dyer. The Dyer works fine but there is no timer.

    Where is the resistor at.

  • parkhurs Feb 24, 2009

    No it will not advance in any position{ time out}. I am thinking of getting a new control but want to make sure. I hooked the two wires on a porcelion [what I thought was a thermal switch] together and after this it would,nt work.

    part number is FSP279872. Is it not advancing on the "timed" dry?

    OR is it not shutting off on the "auto" dry? If it isthe auto dry where you are having it run forever, try removing the duct from the dryer and running a heavy load. IF the timer then advances, you willneed to get the duct to the outside cleaned. Keep me updated!

    This porcelin part, was it just hanging out in the top control area? near the timer? if so, that is the resistor,and you can not just "jump" them out. I think they have orange wires going to it on the whirlpool units.

Whirlpool dryer bad heating element AGAIN


Hi Warren Fink
Try this solution to your problem

A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

My dryer isnt getting hot. its a wp model number LER3624EQ1


Check the thermal fuse, the heating element, all thermostats and the thermal cutout. If these are all right could be the centrifical switch on
the motor.Or wiring of course.Hope this helps

My Whirlpool dryer(supreme) does not start. The timer switch, door switch, start switch can all be heard to electronically switch on and off when I turn the timer around and open and close the door....


the thermal fuse may be faulty. Remove the outer back of the dryer. the thermal fuse is located on the blower assy with 2 wires connected to it. It is white plastic. connect the wires together, then try to start the unit again. If the unit starts, clean the exhaust duct after replacing the thermal fuse.

Electric dryer problem


A quarter dropped inside the machine usually will not cause it to stop running.

Most likely, the start switch or door switch has failed. Others failures can cause this symptom: bad timer, bad thermal fuse, bad belt, bad motor, etc.

Electric dryer doesn't heat.


Probably a bad heating element. There are a few different styles, you'll just need to lookup your model number on an appliance parts website, find the right part, and then do a quick search on replacement. There are probably ten or fifteen websites that have instructions to replace heating elements.

Here's one where you can buy the part, the element is part number 17.

My whirlpool imperial seventy dryer timer quit working when the heating element was replaced and now the dryer quit turning on at all, makes a clicking noise when you turn it on and that's all


I have the same dryer and it did the same thing to me. It ended up being the thermal switch and a frozen drum and belt due to excessive lint. Had to pay $190 to fix it, not sure if this is something that can be self repaired.
