Product Description

Thermal Cut-Off with High Limit Thermostat Specifications

The thermal cut-off (fuse) is meant to trip at a higher temperature than that of a high limit thermostat. This is a one time use fuse, so when it does trip, you must replace it. The hi-limit thermostat acts as a safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. Once the dryer temperature reaches a certain point, this piece will shut down power to the heating element.

    I have replaced the thermal fuse & thermistor that are located next to the blower & also the exhaust & checked inside the dryer for lint build up. Our dryer will run now but it gets extremely hot & the clothes will be too hot to touch at the end of the cycle. With the bottom panel off, the element turns red & then will be black (back & forth) so i assume it is working. Not sure if you think i need a thermal cutoff (280148) or thermostat (8557403). Any advice would be appreciated. Trying to get this fixed myself... thanks!!!
    For model number WED9200SQ0
    Hi DeAnna, Thank you for the great question,checking the symptoms and with the parts you already replaced they suggest trying the Thermal Cut-Off with High Limit Thermostat part number PS991443. The thermal cut-off (fuse) is meant to trip at a higher temperature than that of a high limit thermostat. This is a one time use fuse, so when it does trip, you must replace it. Hope this helps!

    Hi, my dryer is producing no heat. Lint trap is clean. Dryer thermal fuse ps11741460 has .7 ohms resistance. Internal bias thermostat ps11746740 is 11.78 kilo ohms. Thermostat ps11746386 is 11 ohms, and thermal cut-off with high limit thermostat is 7.9 ohms and 0 ohms. Any recommendations? All done at room temp.
    For model number YWED9400SW0
    Hello Same, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the element, PartSelect Number PS11746337. The ideal reading for a tumble dryer element is between 20 and 50 ohms - so any reading significantly outside of this range means the element is faulty and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps!

    Where does this part attach to my appliance. I have been told it is on top, after i remove the main metal plate cover. I am hoping that is it, because if not I'm going to have to buy the entire board, because i have replaced everything, but this part so far in regards to temp.
    For model number WED9600TA1

    Dryer won't start due to a shoe that got stuck in the drum while it was working. So i assumed it was because it got stuck so the dryer stopped automatically and it tripped that fuse if am correct. Would you able to tell me where i can find that fuse and how to get to it.Thank you
    For model number WED7300XW0
    Hello Joel, Thank you for your question. The fuse for your model is under part PS11741444 for your model and it is located near the exhaust duct of the dryer. We hope this helps.

        Dryer wasn't heating.
        Replaced high limit thermostat and thermal cutoff. Dryer works like a champ. Reviewed couple of YouTube videos that showed clearly how to
        get to the effected parts, test them and replace them. I had an old front loading dryer once before that I repaired a couple of times but these parts were accessible by removing a panel on the rear of the unit. The procedure was more involved with this unit. After studying the videos and getting a feel for what was involved, the process, while involved, was fairly simple and putting the unit back together was also fairly easy. Replacement parts did the trick. Very happy.

        No heat in the dryer
        Went to Kenmore website, got parts diagram, watched You Tube videos on dryer repair for this model, ordered parts. When parts arrived (in 4 days, great job!), re-watched You Tube videos, installed parts, dryer works great. Took longer than industry standards because I had to suction out/vacuum a great deal of lint/hair. as I went along.
