Thermostat, Internal-Bias

PartSelect Number PS11741405

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, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.

This part fixes the following symptoms:

  • No heat or not enough heat.
  • Takes too long to dry.
  • Will Not Start.
  • Timer will not advance.
  • Too hot.
  • Shuts off too soon.
  • Will not shut off.
  • Will not tumble.

Timer would not advance and dryer would tumble with no heat

i followed the video exactly. It was very clear and showed step by step instructions. After removing the back with 1/4 inch nutdriver, I removed the cycling thermostat by disconnecting the wires. Some were hard to get off so I had to use the needle nose pliers to pull from just below the clamp. Installing the new one was a snap. I undid the screw for the thermal fuse and repalced with the new one. However, once I installed the new parts my dryer still did not work. Found out that it was a bad breaker. Only one half of the breaker worked. Only 110 instead of 220 was working. Once the breaker was replaced, my dryer worked great. I am still proud that I could replace those parts by myself.

Takes extra long to dry. On auto setting continues to run.

Had already replaced the heating element, Hi/Lo thermostats, and now the Thermal Fuse and Cycling Thermostat, and still have the same symptons.

Clothes wouldn't dry completely

Used a 1/4 inch nut driver to remove back and remove element and cycling Thermo. Prior to ordering parts, I looked at the instruction videos provided with each part. ding the backand 3 holding the heat control and element. The belt is a little different, you have to open the machine from the front. There are 4 screws that need to be removed. The videos show exactly what to remove and how to check belt alignment. ---- With the videos, and list of parts that could fail, you can't miss. I have ordered all of the parts to fix the cold air cycling system in our Ref/Freezer. The cost of all the parts is so minimal compared to a service call, it doesn't make sense to eliminate a few parts that they list as possible problem parts when you are not 100% positive what is causing the failure.----- The dryer works exactly like it did when it was new.

Not drying clothes fast enough

First I removed the back medel cover from dryer by removing 9 screws-holding back cover on-easy. Then took multimeter put on ohms to test cycling thermostat which showed to be no good replaced it- and then sense I had ordered the thermal cut off kit which was not bad I replaced it anyway because I had the back off the dryer ,anyway removed wires being sure to remember where the wires went back- hardest thing to keep stright. But not to difficult. Put back cover back on done with that. Also put new multi rib belt on- easy- take off top and front of dryer. Runs&heats-like new!!

Dryer would not heat up.

First I unplugged my dryer. (220v) I then layed the dryer on its front. I then proceeded to remove the back cover after removing the duct clamp. The two screws holding the Cycling thermostat was removed after the two wire connections were slipped off. I placed the new cycling thermostat in place and put everything back in place and behold...Heat! This was a simple job for even the somewhat clumsy repair person. Good luck and Thank you Partselect! P.S. my order was placed on Friday and it was on my doorstep Saturday morning.

No heat

The repair itself was no problem - in changing out the parts but when we were done the dryer still didn't heat. Ended up calling in a repairman and he said we probably would never have found the problem as it was the flame sensor. He also replaced the coils. So now I have those new parts plus the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat that I ordered from your site. Should be good for another 18 years!! Thanks for making your sight so easy to maneuver in and to order the parts.

Dryer has no heat

It was such an easy and quick repair. It took me about 20 min to complete the repair. The easy to follow " How to" video made it easy to replace the parts. Not knowing which part was bad I replaced both. Now my dryer is heating faster than ever.

Thank you so much!!!!

The dryer had inconsistent heating.

After watching the video on your website and doing just a little troubleshooting on the components of the dryer (thermostats, heating coil, fuse) I determined this thermostat to be the problem. I ordered it from your site and had it in a few days. Took me only a few minutes to put it in and the dryer is working great now!

Thanks for all the helpful information on your site!
