Wgd5840sw0. On 3/14/13, I wrote: “Spoke previously with Crystal and Brent A. Dryer completes about six heating cycles and then cools down, heat will not come back on unless unit is turned OFF and allowed to sit for about a half hour. Then process repeats. Has been going on for weeks. Replaced both coils and igniter at Crystal’s suggestion. No Change. Monitored thermostats after chatting with Brent. Both thermal and hi-limit stay closed at all times. Dryer cycle thermostat opens at about 150F and closes at the proper temp, depending on HEAT dial setting. (Temp monitored with hand held IR meter, thermostats monitored “live” with neon lamps, voltage across dryer cycle auxiliary heater also measured and seems ok, even though I have no “specs”). Also monitored voltage across heater circuit (line to thermal fuse) and it stays at 120 VAC. What now, a new dryer???” Today, 3/20, I made some more measurements. Monitored voltage across motor centrifugal switch and flame sensor in addition to voltage across total heating circuit. After eight normal heat/cool cycles, flame sensor stays closed for about 10 seconds and the opens for about thirty, but flame apparently never comes on. This open/close condition continues and dryer cools down. Voltage across heating circuit stays ON. (thermostats and switch OK). When flame sensor opens I hear a fairly loud “clunk”. What would cause flame sensor to cycle like that and flame not come on? Remember, I replaced both coils.

The thermostat I was sent to replace the old one does not have three hook ups like the old one and is NOT the same size, the number on the part is L135 15F and I am told it is not the correct part. Its the part that came in it when you installed the thing in my laundery room why is it not the correct part and why can't you find one like it ?

What should the exhaust temperature be? I have checked a lot of areas you mentioned in other posts and have taken the vent hose off. While running and checking with my hand, the low and the high range temps are lower that I expected. How can I test it at the vent level?
