Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer

Whirlpool dryer runs but does not heat

We moved to an older home and when we set up our washer and dryer the dryer stopped working. It woked but did not heat up. the clothes were still wet. We took it to get repaired but they told us there was nothing wrong with it. we tried it again. Few months later we decided to just buy another one. It is a Roper and did the same thing. I mentioned to my husband that it may be somthing with the vent which goes down to the basement...not outside. We also checked the voltage it measures up to 220, .......please help.

The problem could be the wiring in the house. the dryer not only needs 220v but also a good ground/neutral. this is a common misunderstanding when people test their outlets with a meter. this is happening too frequently to be a problem with the dryer(s)

I have a Whirlpool LER4634PQ1 it was working just fine then all of a sudden the dryer just keeps running the knob on the dryer doesn't move and the air isn't warm. Any suggestions on what to s


there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

Our Whirlpool Dryer Will not heat at all and not


Your timer may be the cause of both problems. Not cycling and no heat.
Whirlpool makes a excellent dryer and is worth repairing. Replace the timer first. If you still have a heat problem most of the other parts are around $30.

Whirlpool model LGB6000KQ1 gas dryer runs but has no heat only cool air. The timer when set to timed drying, moves down to off position, but does not shut off. Please let me know what parts may be faulty...


If the timer advances to OFF and does not stop you have a bad timer. It could also be the cause of no heat. Replace the timer first. If still no neat replace the glow bar ignitor.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer keeps running on auto dry setting


When you moved the sensor wire on the moisture sensor may have fallen off.
Remove the front panel and locate the wire and the connection. It will be on the right side near the lint filter vent. If it is still connected your timer has gone bad.
