Question about Whirlpool Dryers

I have a Whirlpool Dryer Model #LER5636PTO that isn't getting hot and it is staying stuck on the cool cycle only. Could someone help me with this? Could it be the heating element?

Make sure the internal and external exhaust vents are not blocked with lint.
Will it complete a 45 minute time dry and dry the laundry?

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer not blowing hot air

The element is at the bottom of the unit. Usually they are located on the right bottom but when you take the housing off, you will be able to see it.

check to see if your heater element has been grounded (broke and touching housing) and if not, replace your timer

If it does not shut off during the cool down part of the cycle then the issue is with the electronics

Electric Whirlpool dryer won't cool down during drying cycle and even gets hot during air fluff cycle. Replaced thermal fuse and is still the same.


There are two thermostats on my whirlpool model number 857554115010.
Both should be replaced at the same time.
I found a good video on

I bought the parts from them and it worked.

My whirlpool washer periodically gets stuck on rinse.. the water continues to run but its only about half full so it must be draining. My water bill was over $100 last month, please help.


check the lid switch, if it isn't working right the machine will not enter the spin cycle, also the timer may be going bad, it could stay stuck in between the rinse fill and rinse cycle

I have a Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer that has stopped mid-cycle and will not restart. I know VERY LITTLE about dryers so please use plain language if you give suggestions about how to fix it. Thanks!


1. Does it have electric power? Is the breaker or fuse good? Is the power plug loose?
2. Is the door to the dryer ajar? Please open and close it a few times to check this.

If this doesn't help, you may need new or repaired parts. The timer motor that turns the dryer switch may have failed. The clutch that allows you to turn the select knob for the different dryer cycles may be slipping and have failed. The start button that begins the dryer cycle may have failed after a temporary power outage. The door switch may have failed. The particular switch in the dryer cycle setting you are using may have failed (Other cycles may still work). The dryer thermostat(s) may have failed (prevents too hot/ over-heating). Follow the wires from the "heat selection switch" to find thermostat(s) in the hot air duct. They "turn ON" when too cool and "turn OFF" when hot enough. Mechanical switch contacts can "melt together" and stay always ON. Or switches can get pitted and stay "always OFF" after enough ON/OFF cycles. If pitted contacts happen, you can see this on them. Sometimes a finger nail file (I do not recommend a metal one) can shine them up again. Solid state (electronic) switches have to be tested with a meter or something else to see failure. Please don't do work on electrical or any other problems while the dryer is plugged in or still hot. Good luck. Your mileage may vary. ;-)

Whirlpool Dryer not fully drying


You have a ventilation problem. Either internally in the dryer or more likely hose behind dryer is linked or there is an obstruction somewhere from dryer to end of line outside.

Starts cycle and then stops


Jirina, first check to make sure that both the hot and cold water valves are turned on. If that's ok, check to make sure the lid switch is being actuated. Check those first...Catriver.
