Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
I had to turn the power off yesterday via a circuit breaker for another project. Now the dryer will not turn on. The external fuses are okay. Could a thermal fuse in the dryer have gone out? If so where is it located?
The thermal fuse for your dryer is located behind the rear panel. With the rear panel removed, you can locate the thermal fuse as a small white plastic device located on the blower fan housing on the lower left-hand side (facing from the rear). A resistance reading should indicate close to a short (0 ohms). If the thermal fuse IS defective, the replacement part number is 3392519. You can find all this information at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Bulkhead" heading on the next page. The thermal fuse is listed as item number 7. There's also helpful part locator diagrams to assist in troubleshooting. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know.
