I recommend that you check the house circuit breakers or house fuses for the dryer electrical outlet first. The dryer will run if only 120 volts of AC power is supplied to it. If the second 120 volt of AC power is missing, then the dryer will not heat. Here is a brief video that shows how to check that issue: Video: Dryer Won't Heat . If you find no problems with the house circuit breakers or fuses, then you may need to check the electrical outlet for proper voltage using the procedure shown in this brief video: Video: Perform a Voltage Check on a 240 Volt Outlet . Note: You may need to skip that test for now if you are not comfortable with checking that voltage using a volt/ohm meter.

If the dryer is getting proper voltage, then you could have a bad heating element, a blown thermal cut-off fuse, a bad high limit thermostat, a bad operating thermostat, a failed timer contact or a wiring failure in that heating circuit. The first image below shows a wiring diagram for your dryer with that dryer circuit traced in red and green. The red traces the L1 leg of the circuit and the green line traces the L2 leg. The second image shows the location of the components in that dryer circuit. You can unplug the dryer and remove the back panel to access those components. You can check for continuity through those components using a volt/ohm meter (with the dryer unplugged ). The heating element should measure around 7 to 14 ohms of resistance. The other components should measure near zero ohms of resistance. If you find a component that is bad, then it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from this page: Whirlpool Dryer Model LER6620PQ1 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If you need more help, reply with additional details based on the above tests.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Q:

How important is it to replace a seal on my dryer?

A:

It is very important to have a good drum seal (key#66) at the rear of the drum and a good seal (key#38) attached to back of the front panel. If there is not a good seal it can cause your dryer to take longer to dry clothes and the clothing can also get damaged if they get caught between the drum and the front or rear panel.

The rear drum seal is glued on using a high temperature adhesive and the front seal is fastened with clips.

I assume you had the tennis shoes inside the dryer and they were tumbling around and caught the seal and pulled/tore it. Did you know that there is a Dry rack accessory for your dryer to place the tennis shoes on so that this would not happen? The dry rack is positioned inside the dryer and you place the tennis shoes on it. The drum turns, but the dry rack does not move. I added the link to Sears Parts Direct with the dry rack already looked up.

THank you Expert Joey S for your reply. But I am not referring to the two seals (#66 and #38) that you refer in your reply. I am actually inquiring about seals (#73 and #4) in my question. Are these two seals necessary to replace if they are dry-rotted and old, no longer existing? Thanks.

Q:

My dryer has no heat and is staying on for hours at a time. What does this mean?

A:

Any laundry appliance problem causes an upset in the routine and worry about cost. While you wait for the expert, you can check a similar question below with a suggestion if you like. If you do decide you would prefer to have an experienced technician diagnose and make repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. I attached both links below. Hope this helps!

I know it can be frustrating when the dryer stops working. One of the most common problems when the dryer runs but doesn't heat is, a tripped breaker. The dryer will run just fine but won't heat unless it gets the full 220 volts. Check the breakers and if you are not sure, if it's tripped, just turn the breaker off and then back on. This will reset it. If it still won't heat, there are several problems it could now be:

  • The element
  • The timer
  • Thermostats
  • Motor switch
I recommend having a technician make these checks. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.
