Question:

My dryer is getting very hot. Even when i put it on the air only setting, it heats up and the clothes are almost too hot to touch. I changed the thermistor and it is still running hot. I am trying to test the high temp thermostat but it is normally closed at room temp. At what temp should it open? Is there another way to test this part? I checked the heating coil and it does not show continuity with the frame.

Lance for model number WED8300SW1
Answer:

Hi Lance, Thank you for your inquiry. To test a high limit thermostat, you will need to set it to the RX 1 setting and place each of the probes onto the wire terminals. You should receive a reading of 0. Resistance that is low, or near 0, means that the electrical flow is good. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Clothes would not dry

I simply removed the back of the dryer to gain access to the heating element. Once I removed the heating element I figured I would also replace the thermostat and thermal fuse as preventive maintenance.

My dryer was not heating up.

I asked for advise, looked around and priced heating elements and thermostats. This was the best combo offered for the price given. It was shipped and received it very quick. Installed it and 5 minutes later, she was running like a champ!

Dryer wouldnt heat

First i tested each part for continuity and found out that the thermal fuse was bad. So ordered the part and went ahead and got thermostat and element to ensure no problems in the future since I already was in there.

Flashing e1 code for a bad thermistor

I replaced the thermistor earlier, but the code was still flashing. I noticed the heater terminals were charred and pretty well covered in carbon. So, I replaced the heater, the thermostat and thermal fuse and replaced the 3/8" spade terminals on the heater wires. (These are hard to find - most electrical spades terminals are .250. Also, I crimped and soldered these for a connection with the lowest resistance possible). After all that, the code still flashed! I let the explatives fly, calmed down, and ran the control board test. (This is done by pressing "more time" "less time" "more time" "less time" in succession.) The control board was passing all the tests, but the thermistor test, and the only thing is in this circuit is the thermistor, the wires, the connector to the control board, and some circuit on the control board that involves a few resistors and the "brain" chip. So, I checked the terminals at the thermistor, the wires up to the control board and the connector at the board. The control board connector was fairly dust encrusted, so I unplugged it, cleaned the control board terminals and sucked away all the lint and dust. Finally, I carefully removed earch crimp terminal from the Molex connector (the white female connector) and cleaned and bent them to yield a better connection to the terminals on the control board. I put it all back together, and thus far it is working fine.

Dryer working fine but no heat

Found this website and reviewed videos and comments prior to purchasing the heater element and high limit thermostat and thermal fuse kit. We had recently put our Whirlpool duet washer and dryer on pedestals and after that, the dryer would come on and run, but would not heat up. Installation of the parts we ordered was simple...and we would be considered novice installers....really great website and easy to understand. Customer service was excellent as well. After installation of the parts, still no heat and heating element was registering only 120v. We checked everything again and found that the dryer plug was not all the way in the socket. Probably came loose with the move to the petestal.....plugged it in securely and it works great now. Should have checked that first, but because it was running we just didn't think of checking it. Good lesson learned and so glad we found this website. We will definately be using this site again and telling everyone we know about how great you guys are! And at least we won't have to worry about the dryer for a while and we now know we can fix a dryer that won't heat up!

Dryer not heating

Open breaker and ensure power was off. Checked heating components for continuity.Found thermal fuse had an open circuit.Replaced High limit thermostat and thermal fuse.Now is a good time time check for free flowing vent piping.I discovered mine was crimped below the floor and caused lint build up and obstructing the flow which could have led to the thermal fuse blowing.I replaced the vent piping as well.My wife says the dryer works better now than it ever has.
