Question about Whirlpool LGR7646E Dryer

Dryer will not dry cloths

I have a whirlpool electric dry and 2 days ago I put a load of clothes to dry and left for about two hours. When I came home my dryer was still running. Now when I put a load of clothes in the dryer will not get hot and my clothes are not dry. I cleaned the lint trap and hose leading outside to make sure that it was not clogged. Could this be my heationg element or can my dryer be stuck in cool down cycle?

    Thank you for your help. I checked everything with my voltage meter but as it turns out the last thing that I tried turned out to be what was wrong. It was a broken coil, but it was broken in a spot that unless you pulled on the coils was not visiable. Changed the element and I am now able to dry my clothes. Thank You again,

    I have the same with this dryer. It runs but their is not heat. I don't have the manual. Do you know how I can check to see if the fuse is still lit? Any other troubleshooting ideas (for someone that knows nothing about dryers and has no manual)? Thx

Make sure that the dryer has the proper voltage going to it and if it does then check the heating element and the safety on the left top of the element housing

Takes too long to dry clothes


You may have a clogged air vent, check that the air vent hose is not smashed, if it is not smashed, have your dryer vent cleaned professionally, all the way from where the dryer connects to the wall to where the vent leaves the home,
Recheck the dryer operation, dryer vents should be cleaned every other year for optimum performance

My LG front loading dryer doesn't dry well


Check the exhaust vent when running and be sure there is a good flow of air. You may have to clean the exhaust pipes all the way through. Dryers require a good flow of air for proper operation.

I have a kenmore/whirlpool electric dryer that is not getting the clothes dry,it takes 2 1/2 runs to get them dry! the model# is LEC6848AQ1


Remove the exhaust vent on the rear of the dryer and run a load.
If it dries in 1 hour or less,repair the vent or the restriction in the vent.

My dryer takes almost 2 hours to dry a normal load of clothes.


You have a clogged vent , or kinked vent hose , or the hose to the outside ( possibly in the wall ) , is clogged with lint . A dryer , either heats , or doesn't heat . The venting , is what causes the excess timing , for the clothes to dry .
