This hi-limit thermostat with Terminal Extension Arm acts as as safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. Once the dryer temperature reaches 221 degrees Farenheit, this piece will shut down power to the heating element until it drops by 80 degrees Farenheit.
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:
I first repaired the most likely suspects. The heating element and fuse. That did not do the trick. So then I replaced everything else that could effect the heat, that was over 1% of the likely problem. Wala...fixed. Directions were easy, work was easy and the result was a working dryer, good as new. I probably replaced a few items that were not bad but the entire cost was just over $100. A far cry from replacing the dryer at $599

Excellent video! Very clear. Thanks.
Remoave back of dryer, remove the old parts, install the new. But the dryer still is not heating
Replaced High limit thermostat and heating element. Worked like a charm.
Everything has been super easy so far. Replaced the heating element (super easy), the thermostat (super easy), and just replaced a fuse (super easy). Still no heat though. There are 2 more thermostats to replace, but getting kind of expensive. Not sure how far I should take it before just giving up. Not sure if I want to tear the dryer apart further. Any suggestions? The videos have been VERY helpful.
Using a adjustable speed drill, removed all the screws off the back panel of the dryer. Then took some pictures of wiring with my cell phone, (for reference on how everything was connected together). Removed the cycling thermostat and replaced it. Then removed the Heating element, put the new High limit thermostat on the new Heating Element and installed it on the dryer. Replaced the back panel and all the screws.
the repair was easy. I followed the instructions removed the back replace the part, put the back back on and was done
After checking the heating element and all thermostats and fuses, found that the high limit thermostat was bad by using a multimeter. Noticed the heating element had only been heating on on end because the metal was not showing any signs of heat even though the unit tested good. I ordered the parts from PartSelect.com and had them in two days. Watch the video on how to install. Posted site to my Facebook. This is a great website.
All I did was watch the how-to video on the website and follow the directions, fast, easy, and saved over $150 by doing it myself!!
After reading through a few of the repair stories online, I figured out the parts I needed. I placed the order for the parts, and they arrived promptly the next day. I replaced the heating elements all of the thermostats using the instruction vidoes from the site. The entire job took less than an hour and the dryer is running and heating better than ever. Thanks for all of your help and support....
It was a really easy repair. Simply removed the back cover and swapped out the parts. The only tricky part was getting the wires reconnected.
Removed the dryer's back access panel (8 screws), Removed the two screws on top of dryer where the vent screen is located. Disconnected the four wires located on the heating unit. Raised the dryers top lid to removed the support screw holding the heating element. Removed the old heat element, the re-installed the wiring and panels.
I own a construction buissness & this is a repair anyone can do. Remove rear panel(8 screws). Then remove 2 screws on element & pull electric terminals (3) off element but not before marking them to enure not to put them back on in incorrect place. Install in reverse steps as removal.

First I removed the 10 screws on the back of the Dryer. I then ermoved the old heating element, only had to 2 screws. Replaced ther thermostat, which pulled out and back into place. Replaced the back cover and pulled in and all worked fine.Repair went well. Parts were exactly what I needed. Thermostat was replaced for safety.
After receiving the parts from PartSelect.com with a very fast TA. I replaced the parts and repaired my dryer in about the 7-10 min. It took me 5 min to replace the parts using a nut driver and about 5 min to put the rest of the dryer together. Thank you PartSelect for saving me some cash...
