The heating element on my dryer comes on as soon as you turn the timer on, without the motor running. We have tried a new timer control and have replaced the thermal fuse.

I am replacing the Thermal cutoff kit items. The repair video shows a connection using a jumper wire attaching to an orange wire. My dryer does not have an orange wire, but it does have two very thin red wires that go a special plug that connected to the into the old thermostat. Also where the wires plug into the element there are three terminals with that has red on the right, black in the middle, and then the third where I assume the jumper wire attaches. Do I have to be concerned about those two small red wires, and the black wire on the middle terminal? Thanks, Scott

I've replaced the high temp thermostat and the thermal fuse per this kit, but my dryer keeps tripping the fuse on my breaker. It's worked fine for the past 8 months and just started happening recently. The dryer will work and run on the tumble dry setting, but as soon as I use heat, it will trip after about 3-4 minutes of use. I can go reset the breaker then run it again on heat for a few minutes till it trips. Also- I've noticed if I run the dryer with heat, but no clothes inside, it will run longer on heat before tripping. Everything I can think of would lead to believe that it's more do a dryer issue than breaker, but I'd like to get a professional opinion. Thanks!

Where is the orange wire you show in the video that connects to the jumper wire? We do not have one.

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?
