Hi,

I have a Whirlpool Model LEC7646DQ0.  I was told by my wife that the dryer ran but did not heat.  When I went to work on it, I became aware that it only ran in fluff mode.  It would not run in Auto or timed.

I checked all the thermostats, thermal cutoff, 240 incoming voltage, thermal fuse, door switch, all were good.

I then went to the timer and found only one part not working.  The timer switch 4 which is between the tan and white wires.  It was always open no matter what mode the dial was turned to.  I connected the tan and white directly together, bypassing the switch.  Now the dryer runs on all modes and heats up.  I tested the auto and fluff settings and the timer ran down to zero.  Looking at the wiring diagram, this switch appears to make a connection in either direction.

What does this timer switch do? It opens up at end of cycle and opens intermittently on fabric guard.  Have I created a future problem by bypassing the switch?  Is there any reason that I should not tie the tan and white wires together?

Thanks,

BG
