Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
The usual cause of this problem is a blown thermal fuse which is located on the blower housing. It is wired in series with the
motor and the dryer will definitely not start if the thermal fuse is
blown. Disconnect power to the dryer then remove the rear access panel by removing the screws securing it to the cabinet.
Once the access panel is removed, look for the thermal fuse on the blower housing as shown.
Bypass the thermal fuse by taping together the wires connected to its terminals or jumping a wire between the wires then plug in and start the dryer. The thermal fuse (part number 3392519) is indeed blown and needs to be replaced together with the cycling thermostat (part number 3387134) if the the starts with the thermal fuse bypassed.
Simply unscrew both parts then screw the new parts in place. It's better not to disconnect the wires yet until the new parts are secured then connect the wires to where it should be connected on the newly installed parts. This avoids messing up the wires upon reconnection.
Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed to avoid incurring further damage to other components and due to fire hazard reasons.
