if it was taking to long to dry that's a sign that you need a clean out on your dryer,you should have this done once a year so you don't have a fire.there is a thermal fuse that will pop if the dryer runs to hot probably from a lint buildup in the vent line or the lint filter duct,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?alot of people don't even know they should have the dryer cleaned out,unplug the dryer,take out the lint filter and remove the 2 screws on top where you pulled the filter remove the vent line from the back of dryer and take off the back panel.on the left side you'll see the duct that the lint filter slides into,take the four screws out that hold the duct in place,on some dryers you can remove the duct to clean it and some you can pull it out from the bottom and move it to the right enough to get a vac nozzle into it,if the lint is packed in the bottom use a screw driver to scrape and lossen the pile and remove the big stuff by hand and then vac the rest,also vac the grate on the wall of the dryer half way up the duct and if you have a dryer brush stick it down where the filter goes to clean the duct out good,put the duct back and to the right of it and like 4 inches up from the floor you'll see the white thermal fuse part 3392519,check that with your meter to make sure that's the problem and most of the time it is this,if that's good read out the heater and the termostats to see what part is bad and make sure you have 240 volts going to heater if parts check good,if it was the thermal fuse take the front panel off of dryer by popping the top up with a screw driver and remove the 2 5/16 screws on the inside front panel,disconnect your door switch wires and pull the front panel up to remove it,vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow the lint off the motor and blow the lint from the back forwards so you don't have to pull the drum,put that back together,now if you have a long vent line blow it out with a leaf blower,sart the dryer,go outside and make sure the flapper is blowing open all the way and you should be all set,clean it out once a year so this doesn't happen again

Model whirlpool le7680xsn1 just stopped working suddenly. no prior symptoms.

Need more info. When you say stopped working what exactly do you mean. No indication of power at all, light no on when door is opened, no heat, drum does not rotate? Is it plugged in? Did the circuit breaker trip? Check the door switch?

Whirlpool gas dryer runs, doesn't ignite.

the ignitor could have a crack in it, so that it never glows.

If you have an ohm meter you can check through the leads on the end (with the wires removed)

I'm not sure but I think it is supposed to be between 30 and 60 ohms

15+ year old Whirlpool top loading washer spin cycle broken.

Check the solenoid operation on the outer one that operates the spin bar. There are two solenoids that move back and forth all the time when running called wig wag solenoids. Check for broken wires and movement of the outer slide bar that shifts to make spin. It may need lubrication. Go to to get a diagram.

There is a white thermal fuse on the blower assy. It has 2 wires going into it. You can , off course unplug the dryer first, take the 2 wires and attatch them together. Your just bypassing the fuse. Bypass it and try running it. If it works replace the fuse. If not, let me know. Hope that helps , dave

Broken drum belt

Some large hardware stores like Home Depot stock them. Most appliance parts stores sell to the general public. Marcone appliance parts in St. Louis will sell mail order. Have the model and serial Number available. I always replace belt , idler pulley and back support wheels together. They usually go bad about the same time. I'll bet that the dryer is pretty loud isn't it. The support rollers usually cause the belt to break or a stiff pully. Total parts cost is under 50 dollars
