Hi , I have a 2 year old dryer (hotpoint) when turned on won't heat . I'm thinking thermostat and if so is their only one? What would the part number be?
ANSWER Hello John,
You have a total of 4 thermostats. You have a thermostat that is part of the blower duct system WE4M127. This is located at the base of the unit in the front. You have 3 that are mounted on the heater assembly. Safety thermostat WE4M160, 4 wire thermostat (high Limit) WE4M181, Safety thermostat (thermal fuse) WE4M137. You will want to check continuity of all these things. Also check the heater assembly WE11M23 for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
