Whirlpool dryer LER4634EQ2 won't stay running +has a new motor

28 posts in this topic

Since it is working we've been running it non stop pretty much all afternoon and tonight. I just went out and felt the breaker like you suggested and it is definitely warm. I wouldn't classify it as hot, I can lay the back of my hand on it and its not burning or anything. I'd guess over 100 but less than 120. So when this last load is dry I'll hold off until I can replace the breaker tomorrow.

If the breaker was working correctly would it still generate any heat like that under the same circumstances (continuous use for several hours), or should it always be cool?

Slightly warm under load.  Sounds like the breaker is ok.

Ok, I picked one up at the store today anyway, so I have it on hand if it acts up again.  Thanks.
