Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Was drying clothes and it just stopped and will not come back on.

Have brought a new plug but that is not the problem. Is there a fuse in the dryer that can be replaced? Flipped the fuse box to make sure they were alright and everything else is working.

Dryer drum not turning


First...just as a reminder that electricity can kill! Unplug the dryer and slide it out so you can get to the back of the dryer. Remove the back panel. Plug the dryer back in and observe the dryer in operation. If the belt is broken you have your obvious answer. If nothing happens then UNPLUG the dryer again and reach in and remove the belt from the motor. Plug the dryer back in and attempt to run it again. Does the motor spin? If not, dead motor. It is not the thermal fuse because you say it heats up. Take a look at this video for additional help.

My dryer does not shut off and doesn't get hot. It takes almost 5 hours to dry a load of clothing.

We have brought home two new roper dryers now because neither one of them heats up. we hooked up a brand new 3 prong plug to the new dryers and plugged them into the existing 220 outlet that our old dryer...


You need to double check that your wiring it up correctly at the junction block on the machine. if thats correct. Most likley is that you actually only have 110 volts going to the machine it will run fine but will not HEAT. check voltage at plug or where its wired into back of unit you should have 110 volts on two out of three with the third being ground if you dont you have a bad outlet or breaker in elec.panel

Kenmore electric dryer (model # 110 60202990) dried a load of clothes like normal. But with the current load, it suddenly stopped heating. How can I fix this?


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

My dryer stopped working. Dryed a load of clothes


Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top rightof door opening. If it is not there you will need new doorswitch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and doesnot click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicksand clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuseis an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

No heat not drying clothes


for safety reasons it has its own fuse and that may be your issue (new fuse $5)
To be safe i'd also get new thermostat ($15)

Dryer spins but does not dry clothes


It may not be your heating element. Your dryer lint vent pipe out the back of the machine or maybe out the side may be plugged. You have to pull the machine out and clear that pipe or rebuild it out to a soffit vent or static vent if it is in the attic, or out through your crawl space. This will make a huge difference. If that hot air and moisture doesn't get out of the machine it just goes back into your clothes.
Good luck!!

Drying clothes & the dryer just stopped & won't come back on


This is likely the thermal fuse on the heating element. You can check it with an ohmmeter. Also clean out your venting, as this often causes it to blow. Hope this helps!
