Hi again i have a question about the inlet control thermistor on the blower does it have to have continuity also
For model number DPSE810EG6WT
Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. The inlet control thermistor should show continuity. When using a multimeter, you should see a reading of 9 to 10 k ohms at room temperature and it should not have a closed or open circuit. If it does, it is not working correctly and it will need to be replaced. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Where is the thermostat located in this model? I need to replace it.
For model number DBVH512GF1WW
Hello Dennis. Thanks for your question. This part is located on the housing for the heating element. You will need to remove the rear panel after unplugging the dryer. Remove the small panel and take off the large back panel. Remove the wires to access the thermostat. I hope this helps.

Dryer does not start but drum lamp is ok and changes in the control switches can be seen in the display screen, including the start/stop is giving the on/off commands. I have checked all switches and thermostats, finding the inlet control thermistor and the outlet control backup are open. Is this the normal condition or they are supposed to be close? What could be the correct ohm readings if so? Please advise for any other things to check and thanks in advance.
For model number DPSE810EG0WT
Hello Bernardo, Thank you for your inquiry. The ohm readings for the thermostats should be close to 0 ohms when tested at room temperature. The other parts should have a reading of 0 or infinity at room temperature. For the inlet control thermistor, the resistance reading should be around 100K ohms at room temperature and decrease with temperature rise. The thermostats are normally closed and then open on temperature rise, then close again once they've reached their limit. We also would recommend testing the drive motor, heating element, the center outlet thermistor, the interlock switch for the belt, the belt, and the control board. We have included links to our articles on how to test the thermostats, and door switch. Hope this helps! https://www.partselect.com/Dryer+test-thermostat+repair.htm https://www.partselect.com/Dryer+test-door-switch+repair.htm

Dryer stays on for 2-5 minutes and then cuts off. It's blowing hot air into the drum. Should i assume that i have a thermostat issue?
For model number Dbvh512gf1ww
Hi Chris, Thank you for your question. If the dryer is shutting off too soon, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the high limit thermostat, the interlock switch, the inlet control thermostat, the duct felt seal, the door latch, the drum bearing slides, the door strike, the drive belt and the door switch. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My dryer does not power up? What part do i need
For model number PBVH520JOWW
Hello Frank, thank you for inquiring. This is could be due to either a faulty Interlock Switch, part number PS1481922, or Door Switch, part number PS2344321 for your model. Good luck with your repair!

The mixed load setting no longer registers enough time to dry. It drops from 26 minutes down to 8 then back up and then the cycle stops. From looking at it, it might be a moisture sensor. Could that cause this?
For model number gtd65ebsj3w3
Hello Jason, Thank you for your inquiry. I suggest checking the following parts: PS1766014 Inlet Control Thermostat, PS9861764 Duct Felt Seal, PS1766009 Drive Belt, and PS11763069 CHASSIS AND BOARD Assembly. Good luck with your repair!

Dryer tumbles but no heat what part would i need to fix it?
For model number GTD65EBSJ2WS
Hi Roxanne, Thank you for your question. There are a number of parts that you will probably want to test to see if they are working or not. I would suggest testing your thermostats and your thermal fuses. You may also want to check your heating element as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

I had replace inlet control thermostat in my dryer the old one had no continuity it work for about 2 to 3 hours an blew again . What is causing this. This could get expensive
For model number DPSE810EG6WT
Hi Bob, Thank you for the question. I recommend replacing the Safety Thermostat, Part Number: PS267911 at the same time as the inlet control thermostat. I also recommend checking to see if the appliance is over heating and has good air flow. The venting to the outside might be blocked or restricted and causing poor air flow and over heating. If this happens these thermostats will blow as a safety precaution. Hope this helps!

    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    Dryer would run, but no heat.
    This is more a word of caution than instructions. The inlet control thermostat should be around 100 k ohms at room temp not 10 k ohms as I was quoted. I ordered one and after receiving it found out the "faulty" one and the new one were only 2 ohms difference.

    The center outlet thermistor should also be around 120 k ohms at room temp. The faulty one was reading about 145 k ohms. It does heat now, and hopefully after replacing the elements it will be right again.

    The drum bearing slides made a huge improvement!!

    For the first time trying to repair an appliance I'd say the whole thing went fairly well, but with my mechanical and electronics backgrounds I did have an advantage. The hardest part was figuring out how to get the thing apart to get inside in the first place.
