Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
My dryer ran but quit heating. We replaced the thermal fuse and now the only setting that heats is the timed drying. What could be the problem.
Check for wires that could have vibrated off, or been reconnected when someone was working on the unit.
If that does not work, or is not the case, then your mode selection switch may have taken a dump. Try using a USED switch or if you want to spend the money, buy a new one.

your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

SOURCE: My dryer works but no heat
On the backside near the bottom of the element is a limit that has 3 wires. The smaller wire goes up to the timer and it powers up the timer motor in the auto cycle. On the blower housing is a cycling thermistat with 4 wires.(2 small and 2 big wires) The 2 smaller wires are connected to a tiny heater in the cycle thermistat. To get from cotton to permapress we simply heat up the little old heater and the cycle thermistat shuts down faster. Clever heh? Where wuz I? OK: While the heater is fired up the timer motor will not move. When the heater stops working the timer moves forward. So as the clothes get dryer, the heater comes on less and less and the timer motor gets more and more power till finally the heater is no longer is needed. Then the timer goes on over to the end. Pretty dang clever ain't it? Well what can go wrong? The cycling thermistat is causing the limit to control the heat( you would know because the clothes would be all hot and wrinkly) OR the vent to outside is clogged. As a result the smaller Hi limit atop the heater chamber is blown. a Replace the control thermistat AND that 3 wire limit on the bottom of the heaterlong with it's very blown little cousin atop the heater chamber.. Oh yeah. Remove the vent pipe and get the gunk out:

Thermostat controls heat. There is also a
motor centrifulgal switch, in the element
circuit, that the motor closes to insure
the motor is turning. Try another heat
setting. There is more than one
thermostat. You may have blown the
'thermal fuse' too, which requires
replacement. The elecment has a contact in
the 'timer' circuit too.
It is possible that your element has
Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint
filter and the exhaust vent tube and all
the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

You are correct. Pull the dryer out and disconnect your venting from the back of the dryer. Turn your dryer on and check to make sure your dryer is blowing air out of the dryer duct. If it is then leave your dryer out at least 2 ft from the wall and run a load of clothes through the dryer. If it dries your clothes normally then you have a venting restriction. Check to make sure your venting is clean, not kinked or smashed, make sure your outside vent is opening an doesn.t have something blocking it. Check your lint screen filter by running water through it. If water is not flowing through it, you have a build up of fabric softener on your screen, blocking air flow. Scrub your screen off and test again. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
