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

I am currently troubleshooting my Whirlpool electric Ultimate Care II dryer since it will not heat. I believe its the thermal cut-off set that lead to this problem, since the heating elements look fine. But my hi-limit thermostat currently only has 2 wires connected to it -- the orange wire shown in the video is not present. The top wire and the bottom right are connected, but that's it. Pardon my ignorance, but is this fine? Or could this be the source of a problem? Also, the hi-limit thermostat rattles when I move it. No sure if this is indicative of anything either.

Dryer stopped heating checked vent and vent duct all clear. So I replaced heating element, dryer still not heating. What is most likely the problem dryer cycling thermostat, dryer thermal fuse, or dryer thermal cut off?
