not enough heat

first I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the back of the dryer with a 1/4" nut driver. with the back off using the same 1/4" nut driver I removed the one screw that holds the cycling t-stat slowly remove the t-stat and take one wire off at a time and plug it onto the new t-stat once all wires are replaced. place the t-stat back in and secure with the screw. Then put the back of the dryer back on. put the dryer vent hose back on. plug in and away you go. repair done. If that doesn't fix it. Then the next step is probably to check the gas valve coils. That is a little more difficult repair but not to hard.

Replacing the cycling thermostat went really fast and easy. Unplug the dryer. Remove the 6-8 hex-head screws holding the back panel in place. The thermostat location is in the lower left. below the black discharge air duct. Note the location and/or tag the wires connected to it. Pull off the wires and remove the screw holding the thermostat in place and remove it. Reverse the procedure for installation of the new thermostat. Where this got tricky was it did not solve the problem. A strict diagnosis based on the electrical schematic alone would have, and did, indicate a faulty thermostat, i.e. on that was not opening. However, what I found was surprising. The heating element coil had broken and part of it had "welded" to the casing, grounding it and effectively turning the 240V heater into a 120V heater. This allowed the heater to provide heat (low heat). However, the timer motor needs 240V to operate and since one leg of the heater was grounded the timer could not get 240V when the thermostat cycled off. Replacing the heating element solved the problem.

Went on the website to diagnose the problem and ordered the two most likely components for the recommended "fix". Watched the video that was associated with the tracking information that was emailed to me when the parts shipped. Walks you right through the entire process. My daughters could do this. I call myself the "Maytag Repairman" these days and the wife was quite impressed!!! Of course I didn't clue her in to all the help I received from you guys...made her think I was a GENIUS!!! ;)

I replaced the Cycling thermostat. At first I thought I may have blamed the wrong part because the ohm meter read almost the same for the old and the new part. It took less than a day for the part to come probably because it came from Jacksonville. I haven't guessed how much I saved by not calling a appliance repair.

unplug,disconect vent, remove the back, use the ohm meter test the thermal cut-off , test the heating element, test heat limit switch. ( that now comes as part of the cut off kit ) I tested the cycling thermostat but did not know the values so i ordered it as well. Did not need it after compairing the old to the new. every thing should show compleat circut except the cycling thermo's two center contact that should be around 8000 ohm. very easy repair and recieved the parts in two days. Watch the video.

I watched the video. Thermostat wasn't the problem tho. It was the timer.

Dryer would heat up initially, but heat would cut off and clothes wouldn't dry.

I wasn't sure which part was the problem, but the PartSelect web site is very helpful suggesting likely parts for various problems. I ordered two parts from PartSelect - a Cycling Thermostat and a Thermal Cut-Off Kit. Each of the two parts had an installation video available on the PartSelect web site. I followed the video instructions for each part. Very easy to follow, no problems at all with installation, problem with dryer is now solved. I might add I was amazed how quickly the parts arrived after I ordered from PartSelect. Parts arrived 2nd day after placing order. I would not hesitate to use PartSelect for any future needs.

The repair is quite easy. However for me, the Cycling Thermostat did not fix the problem.
