Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
The problem you describe is usually caused by a thermal fuse intended to shut the dryer down and keep it off because of a problem with air flow within the dryer.
The following process will allow you to test the thermal fuse and replace it if you find it open.
Unplug unit and turn off gas if gas model. Check to be sure you have 240 Volts at wall outlet.
On the blower housing to the left are the operating thermostat and, in some models, a thermal fuse (white plastic). ALL can be continuity checked easily. Always disconnect wire on one side of what you are testing. One will likely be open. Replace the component that fails the continuity test.
The thermal fuse or high limit thermostat failure generally points to a reduction of air flow due to SOME blockage either inside the dryer or in the vent pipe leading out of the house. If you find either of these parts bad be sure to check the vents after replacing parts to ensure the same parts won't fail again.Heater replacement sometimes requires lifting of top. Under the lint filter cover there are two screws. Remove them WITHOUT dropping them into the vent or you may cause a more serious problem. Insert a putty knife between the front and top about 2 inches in on both sides. This will release the top for raising.
