This thermostat is located on the blower wheel.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
The problem was intermittent. It only happened when the unit was first started. After it was restarted it usually worked until the load was dry. I looked at the schematics and saw that only the hi-temp therostat and the motor overload could stop the dryer completely. I put my volt meter on the hi-temp thermostat and ran the dryer. When the dryer stopped I realized the hi-temp therm. was tripping. I read the web site help for this symptom and the suggestion was the bias therm.I replaced it and the unit worked.

I wanted to fix the cheapest possible problem first which was the thermostat. Got the dryer apart and it was the wrong thermostat for the dryer, which was good news! I looked in inside floor of the dryer cabinet and saw alot of tiny "springs". Couldn't figure how they got there. Turned out they were coils from the heating element. Must have burnt out and fell free from the element. So I ordered that and replaced it.I want to say that I'm in NJ and I ordered that thermostat and got it in ONE DAY! Thought that was too good to be true but when I ordered the heating element THAT CAME IN ONE DAY! I don't know what kind of people work in the shipping department but they are awesome! You really made the difference on this job.So did the info on your website. I've never even seen a dryer apart before. It was a piece of cake thanks to you guys. You just saved me about $500.
