Thanks for the question about your dryer not heating; I will be glad to assist with this issue.
First you need to be sure if there is not any heat at all, if there is some heat but not drying clothes you have a venting problem. Try removing the vent from the back and running a load, if the clothes dry then you will know that the vent is clogged and needs cleaning.
If you determine your dryer has a good ventilation system then you should follow the instructions provided by Yadiar and Expert Landell and check out the circuits.
I hope this helps, should you need additional assistance reply with more details and I will be happy to respond.

Thanks Ron H.

What besides the element, thermal fuse, and thermostats would prevent my Whirlpool LER7647EQ2 dryer from heating?


Besides the parts you listed the timer, thermal cut-off and motor switch would the other possible causes of an electric dryer not working.

There is also another reason that often causes an electric dryer to run but not heat. Check the circuit breakers to the dryer first. It is possible for one to trip leaving the dryer 120 volts to run on but not 240 volts to heat with. Turn each breaker to the dryer off and then back on and see if this resolves your problem.

The wiring diagram in the image below may be helpful to you. Except for the timer and motor switch most parts can be checked for continuity/resistance if you have access to a volt/ohm meter and are comfortable using it.

The 2nd image shows how to access most of the parts. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

I hope this information helps but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
