The link below discusses disassembly of models similar to yours. The main difference is that the manual covers models with front controls whereas yours has top controls.

Unplug dryer. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior.

Continue with "Removing the drum" on page 69. Having removed the drum exposes the heater behind it and safety thermostats above the heater shroud. The heater is generally purchased and replaced as a coil only not as a complete assembly as described in step 4 of page 72. Look for a break in the coil by touching all sections until found. If the break is not found check thermostats, motor switch at back of motor and heat contacts in timer for open circuits. Repair as necessary.

Reverse above process to reassemble.

Location of fuse model WER211ESO dryer


The fuse is probably related to the mains plug fuse and unlikely to be this as the machine switches on. Possibly the heater or heater thermostat. You may need a engineer to confirm which one.

Dryer heats up ,then loses heat after 10 minutes


Based on your description, you may have a Gas Valve Coil failure. Below is a link, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, showing the part(s) involved. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=b4a8c237i3479&PartID=3479

More assistance below: You will need your model number to access the information.

Model Number Locator Tip
1. A zero in the model number might be the letter O.
2. A lower case L might be a 1.
3. Some models have 3 digits and a period first, like this 555.66666666
Look for an aluminum tag--or a silver and white adhesive label in the locations illustrated below. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and may be printed in different type sizes. NOTE: There may be partial model numbers on marketing stickers or in the owner's manual. These are often incomplete. For best results use the model number from the tag.

2. Diagnostic tips: If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

No heat


Based on your description, it sounds as if your gas valve coils may be malfunctioning. This has consistently been the number 1 failure.

This link shows an image of the coils. You will need to provide the model number off your dryer product ID tag.

Whirlpool model LGR7648KQO does not heat.


Hi. By "heating coil" I am assuming you mean the dryer's ignitor?
What is probably wrong is the white thermal overload has opened up. You will find it mounted on the blower duct and usually has two light blue wires going to it with smaller spade terminals than the rest of the thermostats. You check it with an ohmmeter for continuity. This is a very common problem on those dryers and it usually opens up if the dryer vent is obstructed or needs to be cleaned.
The part number for this thermal overload is a
3392519. On your model, you have to take the back off the dryer and look for it to be mounted on the blower duct. You can't miss it. It's white plastic with a brownish colored center (looks like epoxy) where the terminals are.

Hope this helps and good luck. Thanks for using the FixYa service.
