My dryer will not shut off on the more dry - less dry side. I think I replaced the switch 2 years ago.
The most likely cause for the unit not drying on the more-less dry setting would be a faulty control thermostat which is part number 131298300.
My dryer will run all of the cycle and the last 2/3 minutes I get the error code e64. It gets hot and drys my clothes. We took it apart and cleaned it good, does it sound like elements or the sensor?
The issue with the unit would be a heater circuit that is opening. You will want to test the heater and thermostats for continuity. Check the wiring to the heater to make sure that there is no damage.
my dryer it take along time to dry. would it be the thermal limiter or thermostat
The first thing to check is the venting of the dryer from the blower wheel to the outside of the unit. Improper air flow will cause the dryer to not dry properly.
