Our dryer will run for hours on end, and gets so hot we cannot touch the top. The timer barely moves from its original position, requiring manual advancing to the stop position. The vent has been cleaned, so that is not the problem. Could this be due to a faulty thermostat? If not, what would your suggestion be as to the cause of this overheating? Look forward to your answer.

Thanks for helping. Dryer starts and heat fine for few minutes and then it suddenly switches to Delicate/lowheat mode. When you press the high heat again, runs for few minutes and back to Delicate/lowheat mode. I see the Orange colour behind the drum when running. also I checked the element which shows 20 ohms +20 ohms (2 coils). I checked the Thermistor (thermodisc) which seems fine. all the thermostats show continuity when dryer is off. Not sure what is the issue. But sometimes the entire high heat cycle works.

Dryer shuts off before clothes are dry. We checked and cleaned all vents and internal lint was cleaned. I changed out a high limit stat but it still cuts off early before clothes are dry even when pulled away from wall so that it has free discharge flow.

The cycling thermostat # on the back L155 this the temperature it turns off at what temperature should it turn back on? Does this thermostat control any heated cycle on/off heat? Thanks, Mike

Hi, Our dryer runs and dries clothes, but it takes between 100 - 150 minutes to do the job (up to 2 whole cycles). Would this be a cycling thermostat problem (WE4M216)? Or something else? Thanks for any help with this, Dave

My dryer dries & cycles to the off position on the timed function only . The other settings dry the cloths but they do not advance to the stop setting.I replaced the timer recently without any change in its operation.Any thoughts about what may be wrong?
