Thermostat, internal - bias Part Number: AP3045874. This has 4 leads (2 red/red white wire) & (2 violet). I have continuity across the red, but no continuity across the violet. Is the Thermostat bad?

My dryer will not heat. I have a thermal cut off kit to install, which I've had to do in the past. I see the red wire from the wiring harness is burned out. This wire connects the cycle thermostat to the thermostat from the cut off kit. Do I need a new cycle thermostat also? This part doesn't come with the connecting wire. Can I order that wire replacement as well?

Asked a representative about my dryer. Plenty of heat, in fact too much. Can't turn it to down for delicates. You sent me part #3390291 to fix the problem. Does this part hook on to the heater coil chamber?

Noticed the dryer running super hot, even on the lowest setting. Did some troubleshooting. I'm thinking its the cycling thermostat, part number 8318268. I took it off the dryer and noticed it makes a rattling sound. Does that mean something is broken inside it?

Our Whirlpool gas dryer shuts down after 20 minutes and won't restart until system cools down. I had the motor replaced two years ago and all other components (drum rollers, pulley, belt) seem ok. Cleaned out lint. Could it be the thermostat, or the thermal fuse? Thank you.

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 ?
