Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
Probably a damaged/broken heating coil.
You can unplug the dryer. Lift the upper cover up and swing it back to expose the heating coils. You can then look at them with a flashlight and see if you can visually id a bad coil section.
Replacement is pretty simple. Unplug the two spade connectors *(be sure the dryer is unplugged!) and lift the coil out of its heat shielded housing. Take to appliance parts store and swap for a new one and reinstall. It's practically like changing a light bulb!
Now if your dryers heating elements arent viewable from above then you need to pull out the dryer and work from the back. This element assembly differs only in the fact that the unit has one of the heating safety switches attached to the side of it. So you would need to remove this switch and put it on the new heating coil before putting the new coil back in.
Here is a nice picture of the various types of heating elements.
I priced the first two out at 20-26 dollars each.
Good luck and be careful.
