First thing yall do is check for reasons why the dryer would quit. The most common being air restrictions. I have a whirlpool dryer mod #LER5620KQ1 that - themobilian_2155.jpg
Your dryer has a fuse right there beside the filter housing. When the drum temp exceeds 350f rapidly this fuse melts and kills power to the door switch. themobilian_2156.jpg

Whirlpool electric dryer LER5620KQ1. won't heat up timer does not advance

Same problem with my Whirlpool Dryer: Model LER4634EZ2 which stopped heating. I checked the coils that was "OK" then I checked the fuse that was "OK" I replaced the Thermal Fuse and High Limit Thermostat then after starting the dryer the heat came on ... problem solved NO.... the dryer just kept running and running until I opened the dryer door. Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer

Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

I have a whirpool dryer Mod#LER5620KQ1 the dryer makes a grinding noise when you turn the power on what can this possibly be

Check for metal shavings under the unit pull off the back cover. It seems like this can be one of a couple things. Bad main bearing, your clutch is not fully disengaging or the brake is not disengaging
