Do I need to replace just the heating element if the dryer is still working other than the heat? It will keep running and not stop but there is no heat what so ever...

The dryer starts and heats, but never stops, the timer never moves, so heats for some time and stops heating, but never stop spining.

Whirlpool Dryer does not fully dry clothes. We have to put dryer on twice to adequately dry clothes. Possible solution?

I'm changing the heating element and thermostat. The instructions state to cut the orange wire, there isn't an orange wire on the current element. There are only two wires, both red.

My dryer was getting too hot so I recently replaced the high limit thermostat and the thermal cut off switch. This fix worked for awhile (two months), but now the same problem has returned. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I bought the Thermal Cut-Off Kit (279816) for the thermal cutoff only. I previously purchased the High Limit Thermostat (3390291) and installed it to no prevail. When the Thermal Cutoff Kit came in the mail I only installed the thermal cutoff and not the thermostat because I had already done that. My question is this: Is there still a need to install the jumper wire? Everything was in place when I removed the old thermostat and put in the new one, same with the thermal cutoff. All the wires were already there and crimped. I also replaced the Heating Element prior to the thermostat. At no time in removing any of the original parts did I have to remove or cut any of the existing wires. I simply installed the new parts with the existing wires already crimped. The dryer is working great now (thanks to your awesome videos) I just want to make sure I did everything correctly. There was a distinct smell when the new heating element came on for the first time but I am attributing that to it being new and burning for the first time. AM Iright about that as well? Thanks for your awesome company andservice. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends. The parts always came on time andwere exactly what I ordered. Your videos are very helpful and guided me step-bystep through the process of installing all the parts. You guys rock! Sincerely, Jimmy B
