Same problem with my Whirlpool Dryer: Model LER4634EZ2 which stopped heating. I checked the coils that was "OK" then I checked the fuse that was "OK" I replaced the Thermal Fuse and High Limit Thermostat then after starting the dryer the heat came on ... problem solved NO.... the dryer just kept running and running until I opened the dryer door. Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

I have a whirlpool dryer mod #LER5620KQ1 that suddenly went dead. Any ideas on what I need to do?

First thing yall do is check for reasons why the dryer would quit. The most common being air restrictions. themobilian_2155.jpg
Your dryer has a fuse right there beside the filter housing. When the drum temp exceeds 350f rapidly this fuse melts and kills power to the door switch. themobilian_2156.jpg
If the fuse is fine then check the door switch
I have a manual and more repair photos HERE

How to replace the belt for a whirlpool ler5620kq1 dryer

It is a very tricky task to put this belt on but I think I can work you through it. When you get the belt around the drum and get to the idler, push the belt under the idler wheel and through the forks of the idler pully assy. attaching it to the pully on the motor. Tension should be on the idler pushing the wheel up toward the drum. Hope this helps.

I have a whirpool dryer Mod#LER5620KQ1 the dryer makes a grinding noise when you turn the power on what can this possibly be

Check for metal shavings under the unit pull off the back cover. It seems like this can be one of a couple things. Bad main bearing, your clutch is not fully disengaging or the brake is not disengaging

Whirlpool ler5620kq1 electric dryer

If you have verified the voltage at the wall receptacle and at the terminal block in the back of the dryer to be 220-240VAC, you need to check the Thermal Fuse inside the dryer to determine if it is still good. On your dryer, the thermal fuse is located behind the back panel on the blower fan housing. To access, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer before servicing. Dangerous voltages are still present inside the dryer with the unit turned off.
2. Remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer.
3. Remove the back panel by loosening all screws holding the panel in place.
4. The blower fan housing will be located on the lower left-hand side (as viewed from the rear).
5. Look for a small white plastic component on the housing. This is the Thermal Fuse.
6. Remove the wire leads and perform a resistance check. If good, the fuse will read about a short (0 ohms). If bad, it must be replaced.

Illustrations of your dryer are available at Just type in your model number and look for item number 7 under the "Bulkhead" heading. and are also excellent sources for finding parts.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
