For Whirlpool High Limit Thermostat (Part Number: AP4036956)

My dryer is not heating up correctly. The flame comes on for 10-15 seconds then goes out and does not come on again. Once cooled down the process repeats. When I remove the Hi - Limit Thermostat (placing it outside of the dryer) the flame comes on and stays on. However the temperature must get too hot becuase I smell a burning smell after about 3 minutes. Could this be a bad Hi-Limit Thermostat?

ANSWER Hello Dave, In this instance, I think I would replace the hi-limit thermostat 303395 and the coil kit 279834. Check for loose connections and be extremely careful running the unit with the cabinet open as this changes the air flow through the unit and it will not cycle the thermostats the same as if the cabinet were closed.
