High Limit Thermostat - L315-65 Specifications

This part is the replacement high-limit thermostat or safety thermostat for your dryer. The high-limit thermostat is found on the upper right-hand side of the heater housing, and it cuts off power to the dryer motor if the temperature reaches an unsafe level. If you push the start button and nothing happens, the high-limit thermostat should be tested for continuity and replaced if the contacts are open. Be sure to disconnect power to the dryer before you begin this repair. This part is sold individually and is an OEM part.

What could cause this high limit thermostat to blow if there is no blockage anywhere in the exhaust line? And would it be immediately or over the course of a cycle and the element heating up? Thanks!
For model number GTUN275EM1WW
Hi Troy, Thank you for your inquiry. I would suggest actually testing your heating element and the wiring next. It could be that there is a short in that part that keeps making your high limit thermostat blow. I hope this helps!

My dryer stops running before the clothes are dry, and it doesn't feel like the dryer is over-heated. The heating element appears to still be on because the top of the dryer continues to get hotter and hotter, even after 5-10 minutes of the dryer being stopped. This is surprising because the dryer is actually stopped. When this happens i cannot re-start the dryer. I turn the dial selector to off so the heater turns off, then in ~10minutes, i am able to re-start the dryer. The dryer does this when the temperature knob is turned to high heat, med heat, and low heat. Thinking what the problem could be, a few months ago i have already replace the thermostat l210-30f (part id ps267926, partselect part number we4m181), and the problem did not go away.

Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. It sounds like you may have too much lint build up inside of your vent and exhaust tubes. When lint builds up in those areas it restricts the air flow. When the air flow is restricted your appliance will over heat and usually blow the fuses and the thermostats, as those are safety elements to make sure your appliance does not over heat. You may also want to test your heating element to make sure that it is working correctly and retest all of your thermostats and your thermal fuses to make sure that they are working as well. Your appliance has two of each of those inside of it. Two by your element and two on your blower housing. You can test all of those parts with a multi meter. Good luck with your repair.

We're is high limit thermostat l315-65 located? Is there anyway to test it?
For model number DCVH640EJ0WW
Hi Barry, Thank you for the question. The high limit thermostat is on the side of the housing for the heating element.To test the thermostat you will need a Ohm meter to check for resistance. Hope this helps !

Dryer won’t start. It is getting full 240 power. What do I check now
For model number HTDP120ED0WW
Hello Beverly, Thank you for the question. If there is power going tot he appliance but nothing works or if the dryer is acting like it has no power, I suggest starting with the Terminal Block and Grounding Strap, PartSelect Number PS1015628 first to make sure it is not damaged or defective. You can also test the High Limit Thermostat, PartSelect Number PS267900. The high-limit thermostat is found on the upper right-hand side of the heater housing, and it cuts off power to the dryer motor if the temperature reaches an unsafe level. Hope this helps!

E61 error on display
For model number Dbvh512ef0ww
Hi Julio, Thank you for the question. The E61 error code indicates a problem in the power supply. Try to remove the appliance from the power source for a few moments then plug it back in. If this does not fix the issue the problem would be in the Main Power Board assembly and it will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Hope this helps!

My dryer starts whenyou push the start button but is soon as you let off it stops what might that be
For model number Gtdp490ed2ws
Hello Mark, thank you for your question. The issue might be the push to start switch, or it could possibly be the interlock switch. The interlock switch may also be referred to as a belt switch. This part is a simple on/off mechanism that prohibits the appliance from operating when the door is open. The interlock switch senses the door is shut and the dryer can begin. I would test the interlock switch as well as the push to start switch. This link will take you to our site, where you can find some information on testing the door switch as well as the push to start switch. https://www.partselect.com/Repair/Dryer/Will-Not-Start/ I hope this helps!

After running for 2 minutes on sensor, the dryer shuts off and the lights on the front go out. After a couple minutes i hear a click and everything comes back on and it will finish the next 20 minutes or so drying without shutting off. This happens almost all the time. Do any of the t'stats reset themselves or once the kick out they are done? There also feels like there is a lot of heat when it shuts off. I recently replaced the flexible duct with galv. Duct thinking that was the problem, but had to reduce an elbow from 4" to 3" then enlarge it back to 4" because of an obstruction. Could that have anything to do with it also?
For model number DCVH680EJ1WW
Hello Ed, thank you for your question. It sounds like you have an issue with either the high limit, or safety thermostat. If the unit gets too hot the thermostat will shut down the unit as a safety measure. They will reset, and are not "one time only" fuses. I would recommend testing the thermostats on the heating element ( part numbers Safety Thermostat Part Number: PS267911 and Inlet Control Thermostat Part Number: PS1766014 and High Limit Thermostat - L315-65 Part Number: PS267900. I hope this helps!

My dryer was heating up and i just replaced the timer. Now it will not heat anymore , why?
For model number Gtdx180ed4ww
Hello Antonio, thank you for your question. I would recommend checking the timer resistor to be sure it is connected correctly, and tightly. If the resistor is ok, test the thermostats (Cycling Thermostat - 4 Wire Part Number: WE4M181, High Limit Thermostat - L315-65 Part Number: WE4M137, and Bias Thermostat Part Number: WE4M216, It is likely, that the bias thermostat has failed, but its recommended you test the aforementioned thermostats to be certain. I hope this helps!
