Question:

Dryer will turn on start to warm up run for about 20 to 30 seconds then shut off. It will start up again when you push the button and run again then shut off a little faster. I ordered two parts a high limit thermal fuse and a limit thermostat hoping this will fix the problem.

Stephen for model number MDE4658AYW
Answer:

Hi Stephen, Thank you for your inquiry. where the dryer is shutting off too soon, there are a few parts that you will need to check. The high limit thermal fuse and the high limit thermostat are 2 of the parts that fix the issue and the fuse is the part fixes the issue the majority of the time. If these 2 parts do not work There are some other parts that you will also need to check. You will need to check the motor assembly, the door catch kit, the electronic control board, the cycling thermostat, the door switch kit, the temperature control thermistor, the drum support roller and the belt. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The drying quite heating.

Took the dryer apart and tested the parts with multimeter. Saw that fuse was out. Ordered two fuses and heating element although only one fuse was bad. Just to help the dryer last longer replaced another fuse and heat element. Parts select had the parts their within two days and it was a holiday weekend. We were amazed. Thanks

Dryer would overheat at all temperature settings

replaced the limit thermostat,thermal fuse, and cycling thermostat. Bingo. Problem solved. Noticed that the back of cycling thermostat had a buildup of lint and I'm wondering if that acted as insulation and caused a wrong reading of temperature. Did not have to disassemble dryer as I could reach all parts with lower front panel removed. To make it easer to install new parts with one hand I lightly hot glued the screws through the new parts and taped the upper portion of new part to bulkhead. With everything lined up and no need to hold the screws I was able to attach using one hand. It was a reach but easily done.
