Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Whirlpool LER6848an2 dryer

If not the high limit thermostat or element then the next suspects would be the thermal cut-off or control thermostat.  The Thermal cut-off is located on the heater housing while the control thermostat is located on the blower housing.  The wiring diagram below may be helpful to you. 

Caution: Before attempting any repair, unplug the dryer from the wall first. 

Both of these parts, the thermal cutoff and control thermostat, can be checked for continuity if a meter is available.  There is also a trick to checking these two parts if no meter is available.  I can tell you more about this trick if you have no meter and feel like some do-it-yourself. 

I hope this helps.  You can reply below with any additional detail for further assistance.

The timer, element and motor switch must be checked with a meter. There is a trick to checking the thermostats and thermal cut-off without a meter is none is available. The trick is to remove the two wires on the thermostat and join them together with a small piece of insulated wire. This will bypass the thermostat for a moment to check if the dryer will heat with the thermostat bypassed. Use caution if you try this and remember to unplug the dryer first before puttong the jumper wire in place. Let me know if this helps or if you need further assistance.
