Is the cycling thermostat and the thermal limiter the same thing?
Answer Hello Shelley! No, they are not the same. The cycling thermostat is located on the blower housing and is part number 131298300. The thermal limiter is also known as the thermal fuse and is located by the element, part number 134120900. Thanks.
The dryer motor just humms, if I bypass the door switch, move the drum by hand, the motor then picks it up and continues to spin and operate
If the dryer motor is not turning with the drum empty then the motor would be bad. If there are clothes in it and it is not starting then you will want to make sure that the unit is not overloaded. If not then the motor would be the problem.
My dryer timer won't shut off my dryer. It goes down to 0 and keeps going.
The dryer not stopping when it gets to 0 would indicate a stuck motor relay on the control board and the control board 134557200 would need to be replaced.
