Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer

SOURCE: no heat after first cycle
This condition is normally caused by a faulty cycling thermostat. Movement of the timer in the auto-dry mode is controlled by the cycling thermostat. Movement of the the timer in the time-dry mode is not controlled by the cycling thermostat, but by the timer motor.
Below is a link directing you to an enlarged image of the thermostat. You will also find other pages within the website with exploded view diagrams and disassembly procedures, prices and shipping information.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

First of all if you want heat it's probably a burnt up thermal fuse due to lack of air to the dryer. But if the timer is getting stuck you'll just have to replace the timer. Theres no way of fixing the timer just replace it and then replace the thermal fuse (it's located on the back of the dryer) and you should be up and running also have the ducting cleaned out.
Please remember to unplug the dryer before working on it.
Hope this helps
