For Whirlpool T-Stat Hi Limit (Part Number: AP4056436)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

My son's dryer will not run. I opened the top and found that the T-STAT HI LIMIT p/n AP4056436 was fried. It is now a grey chauky color and falling apart. The insulation to the quick disconnect terminal going to this part is chared and has started to melt. I know I have to replace this part, but is there anything else I need to check or replace prior to installing the new part? Did this part just fail or did something cause this part to fail?

Jack P. for Model Number CDE6000W

ANSWER Hello Jack. They do recommend changing the kit LA-1053. It comes with the hi limit and the thermal fuse. Be sure and check the vent for cloggs and kinks. Hope this helps.
