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?
