Whirlpool elec dryer #LER4634PQ0 starts and heats fine and then shuts off after a few minutes. Will restart and dry the load. What is the prob?

might be a bad thermostat if cleaning the vent hose doesn't solve the problem. They're are usually 2 of them about the size of quarter, located on the heating element housing and easily replaced. I'm betting the problem is in the vent ducting!

Pull the dryer away from the wall, disconnect it electrically and remove the vent hose (4" diameter hose clamp) and fish out the components that have made their way down the wrong location

Dryer vent connect

Yes, you can use a flex hose, however, remember there must be as short a connection between the dryer and the wall as possible, and you for sure do not want a kink in the hose. The flex hose can be cut to fit with metal snips. ( There is a metal coil inside the plastic)
Many poeople do not know about free flowing air from the dryer to outside, and so wind up with dryers that will overheat and/or not dry their clothers.
Be blessed.

HE3 dryer drum metallic noise while spinning.

The baffels are pretty easy to take out.
You will need a quarter inch nut driver.

First, you remove the top cover of the unit off by removing the 3 screws in the back. then each baffle will have 2 quarter inch screws and you can access them easily once the top cover is off.

Best of luck :)

Model # 110.72602100 wont heat

Your dryer may be pretty old, but give this a try: If the drum will tumble clothes, with the machine empty pull out your lint screen and start the dryer. If you are getting warm or hot air there, you'll need to clean your flexible hose at the back of the machine. Unplug the dryer and scoot it out where you can reach the flex duct and see into the rear of the dryer. Remove the flex hose carefully and take it outside, holding both ends of the duct higher than the middle, like a "U". Standing upwind, drop one end of the duct and shake it, Reverse the duct and do it some more. You can get a dryer lint brush at most home hardware-type stores and at W/Mart, H/Depot, etc. It's a long, skinny brush and resembles a giant bottle brush. Use one of these to loosen and remove any built up debris in the lint trap cavity, and at the back of the dryer, where the duct connects. Also, clean the vent where the duct exits through the wall. All these things are good to do, even if this is not your problem.... IF, however, your dryer still won't heat, the next most likely problem is that the heating elements are shot. This is not a difficult repair, but it will take some work to gain access to the nicrome wire coils that provide the heat. If you have a electrical test meter, you can check the continuity of the coils and determine if any of them are bad. Parts are readily obtained from any appliance parts house.
I Hope that this FixesYa up. Regards,--WoobieDog--

AF flashing on our Whirpool Cabrio Dryer.

Hi Terry,

AF flashes if a restricted airflow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place and the vent is not
I suspect it's the vent connecting the dryer to the wall or the vent pipe in the wall to the outside. Without moving your dryer, look behind it to see if the flex duct is crushed or pinched. If it is, it's pinching off your air flow, too. Pull the dryer out straighten or replace the hose (you can get vent hose at Home Depot, Lowes or Ace Hardware) then slide the dryer back being careful to keep it about 8" from the wall (8" is the recommended distance from the back of the dryer to the wall, btw).
If the flex vent is NOT pinched off, then you should call a chimney sweep to come out and clean the vent pipe that's in the wall.

*Note---> If you want to test this diagnosis to verify it, just disconnect the flex hose from the wall and run a load of clothes. The error code should not reappear.

Code for dryer vent connections

Yes, the semi-rigid metal flex tubing is recommended because it resists crushing, crimping, collapsing and heat. The old plastic flex hoses would collapse easily, develop more clogs, melt and rodents could chew through them easily. When installing a new flex hose, the SHORTER and STRAIGHTER you can keep the run, the better. The more bends you have, the greater possiblity you have of creating areas where lint can clog. I hope this helps you. Post back if you need further guidance.
