Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
My electric, front loading whirlpool dryer heats up and it seems the tub is turning but even after running for 2 hours, the light weight cotton clothes are not dry. the dryer also shows no collection of lint in the dryer's lint basket -- even after having towels in the dryer.
The flames on the dryer come on for a couple of minutes and then shut off then comes back on about 5 min. later,. the cloths don't get dry . this goes on the whole time the dryers running, take 2hours to dry a load of cloths

Check the exaust pipe, I believe you will find it plugged up. You may also try disconnecting the vent line from the dryer and then running the dryer, put your hand over the exaust port, you should feel all kinds of air flowing from the port, if not you have problems with your blower.

The following link explains how to troubleshoot a dryer no heat problem:
Pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. The fact that you don't see any lint collection in the lint trap could be a symptom of a dryer that is clogged, or an exhaust vent clog. An easy way of determing whether or not the problem is with the dryer, or the ventilation, is to remove the exhaust vent line from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a load as normal. The air flow coming from the back of the dryer should be forceful and warm (about 140 degrees). If this is the case, the problem is NOT the dryer and may be attributed to something in the ventilation ducting from where it leaves your dryer to where it exits your home. An inspection of the vent ducting should be done to confirm it is clear and free of clogs or kinks.
If the air flow is weak, then you have a clog INSIDE your dryer. An inspection of the dryer blower fan housing should be done to ensure the fan is turning unobstructed and there are no clogs. If the air is cool, you probably have a failed component in the heating circuits.
Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
