My dryer is not drying clothes. I removed the heater assembly. The wire between the thermostat and the heating element is burned on the heating element end of the connection and hence is no longer connected. The heating element reading shows to be 11 ohms. The thermostat is 0 ohms between posts. I am thinking replacing the wire is a temporary fix. Thoughts of what caused the burned wire?
ANSWER Hello Jim,
The wire burned because it was a point of high resistance. I would install both of the thermostats 303396,694674, and run it. The jumper wire part number is Y304693. If you manufacture one yourself, it has to be crimped with a proper crimping tool or it will burn off again.
