your anwser to pete,regarding the thermal cut off kit is wrong.part #279816 does not contain the correct parts for a mod#wed6200swo the lower piece is part#ap3951297 which is listed separate, from the cutoff kit..i was sent the wrong parts #279816 and got the same results as pete,with 1 exception,i twisted the 2 red wires together,and the dryer seems to be working normally.this modelwed6200swo uses a thermal cut-off on the top of the heat duct,and a inlet thermistor/high limit thermoastat in the lower part of the duct.its mounted in the element housing.the lower cutoff supplied with kit 279816 has no provision for the 2 smaller ga .red . wires.this wil f lash a code to replace other parts,but its because you have the wrong parts ,the lowercutoff, installed.if pete orders part #ap3951297 and installs it in the lower position all should be good. or at least im hoping so because i am in the same dilema, do i need to order more parts??? as in ap3951297???

Jeffrey Sias for Model Number wed6200swo

ANSWER Jeffrey, The thermistor fixed 8577891 is the correct part for your unit. This should resolve the heating issue if it is the problem.
