The dryer top is too hot to touch. Could you please explain which of these could be involved in overheating: the "Thermostat control" #1315, the "Thermal Limiter" #1236, and the "Safety Thermostat" #1233 ? Thanks.
There is a possibility that any of these would be a possible cause for the overheating but the first thing that you will want to check is to make sure that the dryer vent is clear from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of the home.
Clothes take to long to dry.
Answer Hello Jamie. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
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.
