For Whirlpool Dryer Thermal Cut-Off Kit (Part Number: AP3094244)

Answer or Comment

Drying element was red hot, and I could smell a burning when I opened the door. Took apart back and the heating element metal was burned on lower half. Tested the thermal cut off switches and they have continuity, but did not test for temperature. Not sure if I should replace them and also the heating element. Dryer is 20 years old kitchen aid. The fuse and output sensor was serviced in the past. Is it worth fixing all these parts or better to replace the whole dryer. Was looking at a lg and told the parts are very hard to find when they break. What are your thoughts? Thanks for the help

ANSWER Hello Joni. If all the thermal cut-off kit 279769 test good, then you will just need to replace the heating element 697663 in the unit. Make sure the fuse 3392519 is good as well.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
