Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
HI, the timer motor is malfunctioning. this can affect the way you dryer heats in this case. I would advise to check the thermal fuse before replacing the timer. it is located on the blower house or, on the vent duct. in will show no continuity if defective. replace the timer if the thermal fuse is showing good continuity when measure with a meter.

Actually - the timer doesn't move until the cycling thermostat reaches a pre-set temperature (or your moisture sensor indicates the clothes are dry if so equipped) so the timer not moving when there is no heat is NORMAL. There are multiple reasons why you would have no heat. Make sure both poles of your 220V circuit are not tripped (the motor only uses one half of the circuit - 110V while the element uses both) If that is ok, check your heating element - either with an ohmmeter or visually - make sure the dryer is unplugged. If the element is ok, the next most likely culprit is your centrifugal switch on the motor - it makes sure the motor is spinning (and thus blowing air) before it allows the element to heat up. I would be surprised if it wasn't one of these, but if it isn't make sure and re-post.
