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?

My dryer does not shut off in the Automatic Cycling, but does shut off when the timer is used. It gets really HOT and does not seem to be effected by selection a different temp. Now I understand there are 2 differenct thermostats on my unit, accessable under the rear panel. The video only shows the AP2042518 theromstat. Will these show open or closed if the temp is always HOT?

My dryer works and shuts off at the right time but the clothes are too hot. I checked and the vents are not clogged. Is it the thermostat?
