Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer worked for two days

Then quit working. No response when i hit start button and timer isn't working either. When i went back to look at it the outflow metal tube shocked me. Unplugged, looked at wires from wall outlet and into dryer. All seeemd fine except red wire at back of dryer just looks old. Not sure if I blew a fuse in the Dryer or what? Any help?

    Dryer stopped working. We checked it out and cannot find the problem. When we push the button on the door, the timer clicks but when we close the door and push the start button nothing happens. What could it be?

Yes, you did. I advise you to either call me here Whirlpool Parts Surplus OR get a new pigtale for the dryer. AND a thermal fuse. Take the 9-11 1/4" screws out you will see a white skinny fuse straight down off the outgoing air duct. check continuity or connect the wires. I advise you to get a new cord before you start it again.

Best of luck

Check to see if the fuse went. If negative then something is wrong with the electronic pad for the unit.

Whirlpool LER5636PQ1 DRYER starts when I hold the button then shuts off


Your motor has gone bad. Think of the motor as a starter in a car. When you turn the key (press the start button) power is applied to the starter, to be specific, the stator also called the start winding, same as the dryer. Then the rotor takes over and the stator drops off. With your machine the rotor isn't engaging and the stator is taking the load and shutting down.

The reasons can be a fault on the program controller unit but as the door does not close the program also will not move further. This must be the clue to the fault. Remove and check the lock and the settings. manually close the door with force and see if the program cycle starts, if not check the door switch and the control panel. Also check for output when the timer counts down. If not the controller unit must be checked for possible problems.

Try resetting the dual breakers for the dryer in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. Power surges from the utility can cause the breakers to trip. If this doesn't help, then you probably have a problem within the dryer. Good luck!
