Good day,
Sorry, no reset you can get to. There is one embedded in the main motor itself, that if the motor draws too much current, and/or gets too hot.
If you shut the machine off for a 24 hour period, then it will many times appear to run normally again, but it's the motor getting weak.

It's usually a slow progressive problem, and if you choose,you can, at least for the short period use the machine by either lightening the loads, or spread the loads over a longer period of time.
Eventually the motor will need to be replaced.

My Whirlpool dryer(supreme) does not start. The timer switch, door switch, start switch can all be heard to electronically switch on and off when I turn the timer around and open and close the door....


the thermal fuse may be faulty. Remove the outer back of the dryer. the thermal fuse is located on the blower assy with 2 wires connected to it. It is white plastic. connect the wires together, then try to start the unit again. If the unit starts, clean the exhaust duct after replacing the thermal fuse.

No heat in electric dryer model LER7646Eq2


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Unplug unit and turn off gas if gas model. Check to be sure you have 240 Volts at wall outlet.

Most parts likely to fail in your dryer are inside the rear cover. Heater is on right inside can, safety thermostat on lower left of can, High limit thermostat (non-resettable) higher left of can. On the blower housing to the left are the operating thermostat and a thermal fuse (white plastic). ALL can be continuity checked easily. Always disconnect wire on one side of what you are testing. One will likely be open.

Dryer runs as usual but won't heat up.


you need to check continuity across the heating element with an ohm meter looks can be deceiving

Whirlpool gas dryer model number ler7646eq2 does not produce heat


Need more info. Does it rotate? If it has a viewing door on the front, you may see if the ignitor is glowing. If the ignitor glows, the ignitor (flame) sensor may be bad, and the ignitor will shut down.
