Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
I have a Whirlpool LEQ9030PQO dryer. The machine keeps working forever even when it the cycle is complete. It does not dry clothes well as it used to do befrore the problem. My husband tried to fix it because he thought there was lint accumulated but he did not find any. He took the bac out and cleaned it but the problem continues.
Any solution would be great, even if you guide me to a repair expert in my area
This could be a problem that is much overlooked.
Check to see if the double circuit breaker or fuses are either tripped or one fuse blown. With a circuit breaker you may not be able to tell if it is tripped, so just flip it off and on again. The one side of the power that is on may be the side that runs just the 120v operational components. This happened to my daughter's dryer and there was nothing wrong with the dryer. Sometimes if the washer has not spun out the water good enough, this over wetness could cause the element to short and trip the breaker.
If this is not the problem, then you could have a problem with the timer/controls. The timer may not get to the final stage and make it keep running.

This may not be the solution to your exact problem but for those looking for why there timer will not advance and why it keeps running even when the items are dry: The usual problem is not the timer but the mosture sensor (if your dryer has one).
1: Check the mosture sensor light/indicator. If is still shows some mosture or flashes even when the items are dry, you have a mosture sensor problem, probably not a timer issue - luck you.
2: Check if the timer will advance and the dryer will turn off when you have it in the TIMED mode (i.e. 10mins - NOT the more/less dry modes.) If so, then it is indeed a sensor problem.
2: Check that the wires to the mosture sensor have not fallen off (as in my case - a simple repair). The senor is usually two metal bars somewhere near the front part of the inside of your dryer. You may have to take off the door and the front pannel (be sure to unplug the dryer first) to get at the two wires to clip on to the sensor. Clean any lint and make sure they are conneted. If well connected then replace the sensor ($15-$20 and very easy to do).
