A cycling thermostat is in tune with the temperature of your dryer and regulates it in order to maintain a certain temperature. This thermostat reaches a temperature of 155 degrees and will then turn off and then on again once it has dropped by 25 degrees. If your dryer is not giving off enough heat, is over-heating, is not turning on, or is having issues with the timer functionality, this could indicate an issue with the thermostat. The installation of the cycling thermostat is simple and the only tool required is a 1/4 inch nut driver (and gloves for safety).

This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag, KitchenAid, Roper, Estate, Crosley, Inglis, Amana, Admiral, Magic Chef, Jenn-Air.

Question:

I’m not sure how often this happens because it hasn’t happened to me or anyone I know before. But our dryer seems to be getting too hot during cycles. The clothes are way too hot when they come out, even on the lower settings. The heater element is still cycling on and off though which is think is normal. I’ve already checked the flow and the vents and everything seems to be square there. What would you recommend I check next. Do you think it’s the thermostat?

Kealan
Answer:

Hi Kealan, we recommend trying to dry a load with the vent unhooked from your dryer. If you are still experiencing these symptoms you could have a faulty dryer cycling thermostat WP3387134. I hope this helps!

My dryer is turning on and “working” but it is not heating properly. It is a gas dryer and it doesn’t seem to have a problem igniting. What should I check?

Question:

Is there a way to test the thermal interna bias switch to be sure it is the problem

Jerry for model number Ler7646ez2
Answer:

Hello Jerry, thank you for contacting us. With a multimeter you can test the two large terminals on the thermostat, they should read closed for continuity and the two small ones should show an ohms resistance value. We hope this helps and good luck with the repair!

Question:

My dryer is taking too long to dry the clothes in it and I am not over filling it. My friend suggested a blockage but we already checked for that. We also tried using the different settings and the only one that seems to be buggy and not working is the highest setting. So do you have any suggestions of parts to check or tests to try to fix this.

Dylan
Answer:

Hi Dylan, we recommend testing the temperature coming from the dryer when on high heat, which should be about 110 (low end) to 160 (high end) degrees. If your dryer is cycling before it hits the 150 degrees, you most likely have a faulty cycling thermostat. This can be tested with a multi-meter with temperature. Best of luck with this repair!

The dryer stopped heating

Accessed and removed the rear panel. I replaced the three electrical components with a nut driver and reattached the rear panel. The fix worked, so I have not yet replaced the gas coil sensors at the front of the dryer. The dryer is 19 years old, so the electrical connectors were pretty tight. I used needle nose pliers to pull the connectors free and prevent any damage to the wires. Good Luck.

Would not run at all. Unit was overheating before it stopped completely.

Installed fuse and two thermostat parts. Your system of correlating problem to part needed to fix the problem is a really good system.

Dryer would leave clothes damp

First, I unplugged the dyer and then I removed all of the screws for the panel that covers the rear of the dryer. This exposed the cycling thermostat's location. I then removed the wires, one at a time so I would be able to put them back on in the same place. Then I removed the one screw using a nut driver and then put the new cycling thermostat in place. It was pretty easy.

The dryer would not turn on and the autodry feature quit working.

First I removed the back of the dryer. Then I used a multimeter to check the thermostsats and the one time use fuse. I found that the fuse had burnt out and one of the thermostats ha checked bad. I changed the fuse by removeing the one screw and lifting the fuse out. Replaced the fuse and reinstalled. I also made sure that the fan for the dyer and the lint trap area were clean. I also changed both of the thermostats while I had the dryer apart. Reassembled the dryer. Everything worked. NICE! No repair bills or buying a new unit.

Clothes took way too long to dry (1-3 hours)

The first thing I did was google "whirlpool dryer repair drying takes too long" to determine all of the possible parts I needed to order (the result was 3 possible parts, a heating element and two different thermostats). I then went to www.partselect.com (I'm a repeat customer) and searched the parts using the dryer model number listed just inside the door. I then printed the dryer model diagram off of the www.partselect.com website to determine the location of all the parts and how to replace them. Our first purchase was the new heating element from the www.partselect.com website, received it in just a couple of days and replaced it, but that did not fix the problem. We then ordered the two thermostats, again received them in 2-3 days, replaced them, and were drying clothes in <30 min. in no time! All we had to do was unplug the dryer, disconnect the vent hose, take the back off, unscrew each thermostat, disconnect the wires, install the new thermostats, reconnect the wires, screw the thermostats back in place, replace the back cover, reconnect the vent hose and plug the dryer back in. It took <15 min. for the complete repair! Thanks, www.partselect.com! I will continue to be a repeat customer!!!!!
