Whirlpool #LER5434AWO
« on: January 04, 2013, 01:41:31 PM »
Our dryer is blowing cold air.  I've checked the vent.  I understand from reading posts if the fuse was blown it wouldn't start? What else should I check? Thanks

Hi,

On that model dryer I would check the Thermal Fuse Part # 3392519

Thermal Fuse Help Video

and the Heating Element Part # 4391960

Since your dryer is running,the thermal fuse referenced above is OK.
The Thermal cut out comes in a kit with the Hi limit thermostat and may be bad.
If either the thermostat or thermal cut out are bad,change them both.
As mentioned above,the heating element may be broken.
All these parts can be checked witha voltage meter set for ohms or continuity.

That is correct, my bad.
Was thinking about gas dryers when I posted that.

For some reason I had GAS dryers on the brain, worked on two of them today.

Thanks for the correction jumptrout51.  O0
