Question and Answers


LER3624JQ0 dryer won't heat? LER3624JQ0


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having trouble with the heat of the dryer.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your model number Ler3624jq0 a Whirlpool dryer.

When there is trouble with the heat on any make of dryer, the first things to look at always are the lint screen area and the vents.   There must be a free movent of air flowing for there not to be a major problem with the heat.  You stated you put a new heating element on the dryer so the next thing to check on is the thermal fuse which on the side of heating element.  There are 2 of them, an upper and lower.  After that you check behind the blower and you see a thermal fuse and a  thermostat there.  On all these thermostats check with continuity going in and out.  

The thermal  cut-off  (right off and beside the heating element) should be reading around 10 to 13 ohms.

Thermostat behind blower should read 9.6 ohms.

Thermal fuse behind blower should read  10 to 11 Ohms.

On the thermostat you have that read "0" ohms needs to be replaced.

Thermal cut off  for model ler3624jq0

Thermal fuse for model ler3624jq0

Thermostat  for model ler3624jq0

Good luck.

 If you have further questions please let me know.

Thanks for choosing Sears

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Your Whirlpool dryer model LER3624JQ0 does have a drum belt that is used to turn the drum and it does not have a clutch. Based on your details the dryer will start but the drum is not turning. If this is your symptom then the drum belt has likely broken or had come off the motor pulley.

I added a YouTube video showing how to access and install the drum belt. If the belt is broken, order part number 341241 drum. It can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Why doesn't my Whirlpool dryer model LER3624JQ0 dry the clothes completely even though the exhaust vent is clear and the filter is clean?


I recommend that you perform this test to determine the cycling temperatures of the dryer:

  1. Clean the lint screen thoroughly and replace it in the housing.
  2. Pull the dryer forward and disconnect the flexible vent hose connection so that the dryer will vent directly into the laundry room. Position the dryer so that you can measure the temperature coming out of the middle of the dryer exhaust vent while the dryer is running during this test. Ventilate the laundry room as much as possible during this test.
  3. Fill the dryer with a medium load of wet towels or laundry so that it will cycle the heating element normally.
  4. Start the dryer on a heated cycle with high heat.
  5. Monitor the temperature of the air coming out of the vent in the back of the dryer.
The dryer should heat up to about 150 degrees and then should cycle between about 130 and 150 degrees.

If the dryer cycles properly then the likely problem is an undetected exhaust duct system restriction. You may need to have a duct cleaning service clean the path for exhaust to the outside of your home. Many new homes have an interior laundry room that vents the dryer through the roof. If you cannot afford a duct cleaning service, you may be able to blow the duct out with a leaf blower. You may need to carefully climb up on the roof and clean the exhaust vent damper/screen where it exits the home.

If the dryer is heating up to over 200 degrees and then cycling off for a long time you could have a failed operating thermostat. If the dryer never heats up to 150 degrees, you could have a failed heater element. I provided a wiring diagram for your dryer in the first image with the heater circuit traced in red and green. The second image shows the locations of components in the heating circuit. Unplug the dryer and remove the back panel to access these components if necessary. You may be able to visibly check the heater element if it is not heating properly. It can also be checked with a volt/ohm meter. It should measure between 7 and 13 ohms of resistance. If the operating thermostat is not cycling properly, it will need to be replaced.

These tips may help you diagnose and fix your dryer problem. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details based on the above tests.
