Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
I set the dryer to dry. Ran for less than 5 minutes and then it shut off. i fiddled with the breaker.....nothing. pulled the dryer out from the wall and made sure dryer was plugged in...was. So now i dont know what to go. please help!
This is usually a symptom of a thermal fuse that has blown. A blown thermal fuse is a symptom of other problems (usually). That is to say that they generally blow for a reason. The most common cause is a dirty dryer and/or clogged vent duct. If it's been a while since you've cleaned your dryer and/or the vent duct, you might want to do so BEFORE you replace a thermal fuse. Or, the problem will persist. If your heating element is in the rear of the dryer, the thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing on the left hand side of the dryer. It is white in color. If the heating element is located inside the dryer under the drum, the thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing right under the drum in the front of the dryer. The fuse should read a short. If it does not, you need to replace it. It is not resettable. Let me know if you have any further questions. I hope this helps you.
