Default Whirlpool Dryer timer runs backwards
Model Number: LEP6848AWO   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Whirlpool dryer model LEP6848AWO timer starts going in the right direction but when it hits the cool down cycle, the timer starts going backwards. It will eventually turn itself off, but the cloths seem to be very hot (no burning smell) even on low heat setting. This started with the automatic dry setting, and now seems to happen on the timed setting too. I took the back off and cleaned out the vent and pipe is clear. Problem is intermittent. Do I need a new timer? Cycling thermostat? New dryer?

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL LEP6848AW0 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is a wiring diagram

The timer is AC so should not be able to run backwards, I would replace this.

Thanks, I bought the new timer and that seems to be working well. I think the dryer is still too hot though. Do you know what temp. each setting should get to? Or do you know where I can find that info? Best way to test temp.? (I used an instant read thermometer)

Am not sure about the temperatures perhaps someone else has a test routine.

Usually a candy or meat thermometer can be used in the exhaust vent.

High heat should be about 150 or so, with low heat (delicate) at about 120.

The cycling thermostat opens at 155 and closes at 130 (high heat setting) so you will see a fair amount of temperature fluctuation depending on how fast the thermometer you use can react to temp variations.
