Sounds like your problem is the heating coil or the thermostat/thermistor. Chances are its the heating coil so I will deal with that.
If you plan to check/repair yourself then you need to unplug the dryer.
Remove the back of the dryer, try to locate the air tube from the blower to the drum. This is normally where the heating coil and thermostats/thermistor are located.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires and connect a continuity meter across the coil, you should read continuity across the coil...if you do not get a reading, the the coil is faulty and needs replacement.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

I have a Whirlpool LER4634PQ1 it was working just fine then all of a sudden the dryer just keeps running the knob on the dryer doesn't move and the air isn't warm. Any suggestions on what to s


there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

Whirlpool gas dryer (LGR8648PW1) doesn't stop spinning in automatic mode.


More than likely a bad timer assembly. They are usually easy enough to replace if you have basic mechanical skills. The part can be ordered from repairclinic.com.

Whirlpool dryer will not heat


Gas or electric? If gas check for flame. If electric check the heater element. Go online and get a replacement. Doesn't really matter which watts you get. Should always run dryer on low setting and let the air do the work not the heat. Check the air vent and clean as necessary. You can save energy by doing loads and then adding wet clothes to dry clothes. Break up the wash load into managable sizes. Let me know.S

My whirlpool estate dryer has all of the sudden stopped heating up. What is the likely cause of the problem


I would check to see if your exhaust vent is clear first. I actually had a bird build a nest in mine once :) If that doesn't seem to fix the problem you most likely have a burned out heating element. Hope this helps :)

I press the start button on my whirlpool duet dryer and it beeps, but doesn't start


This is a common issue caused by a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing and wired in series with the motor. Power to the motor is then cut and therefore cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run. Click on the link below for the complete details of the troubleshooting and repair procedure.

No heat-Kenmore (Whirlpool) Elite He5 Steam 110.8775


Check that there is 240 volt at the plug as sometimes a breaker will be weak on one side and only produce 120 volts which will let the drum spin but produce no heat
