My dryer is overheating and trying to burn the clothes. Will the Thermostat control fix my problem? Thanks, Pete
Answer Hello Pete,
If the heating element isn't shorted to ground causing it to heat continuously, the cycling thermostat WE04X10028 will cause the issue. As a note, if the heating element is shorted to ground it will remain hot even when the unit isn't running.
Can this part fix my dryer? Dryer does not heat.
Answer Hello Leop. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
