I just replaced the front thermostat on the heater assembly, the dryer ran fine for one load the quit again. I have checked the dryer vent pipe and all internal passages for obstructions and found none. I checked the thermostat in the blower housing along with the thermocouple in the blower housing, both seem to be ok with 10 ohms. I also checked the rear cycling switch in the heater housing. I am unable to tell what temperature it switches at but it seems to have continuity after it switches for a second or two in both directions (on and off), before it breaks connection. Is that the cause for overheating and blowing the front thermostat? Is there anything else to check? I have already ordered a new front thermostat and cycling switch to try out.
ANSWER Hello Mike. If the cycling thermostat does not fix it, either the heater is grounded or the board is bad on the unit.
