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.

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.

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!!!

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.

Hello Armando, Thank you for the question. If the appliance motor is running but the drum is not spinning, we suggest checking the Drum Belt. The Belt wraps around the dryer drum to allow tension and movement. We hope this helps!

My gas dryer won't turn 9n, says door open, and has code E66. Do I replace the Thermo Limiter, or the Thermostat fuse?
For model number LAQG7000LW0
PartSelect logo
Hello Bob, Thank you for your inquiry. This code usually indicates that the thermal limiter has tripped and needs to be replaced. You can test the thermal fuses with a multimeter to see which one is causing the issue, and also check for any obstructions to the vent that could be causing the dryer to overheat. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, we have videos available to assist you. With your multi-meter set to Rx1, touch the probes to each terminal, you are testing for continuity and should have a reading of zero or infinity. We hope this helps and if you need help placing an order, customer service is open 7 days a week. Please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!
