I just replaced the heating element and now doing the thermostat and thermal cut-off. Is there a certain polarity on the thermostat or thermal cut-off? I only ask cause I wired it all up and the thermal cut-off blew. So now I got a new set but am curious if I wired it reversed. If I bypass the cut-off the dry heats up and works fine.

My whirlpool dryer runs, but does not heat at all. Model number ler6620pq1. Research tells me it's probably the thermal fuse and to change the thermostat with the thermal fuse. Is this the correct part number I need to do this? AP3094244

Trying to hook up thermal cut off kit- every video shows an orange wire- my dryer does not have an orange wire- it has two very small diameter red wires coming out of original thermal cut off- cannot disconnect - the kit 270816 used for replacement does not address this. It talks about splicing the orange wire and putting enclosed terminal ends to hook up kit- I'm sure I am not supposed to splice these two small wires- they are permanently connected to original thermal cut off (thermostat?) and bundled with wiring harness- please help!

The dryer timer will not advance. I changed the timer switch and thermal fuse. The result is the same. It has heat but it still doesn't advance the timer.

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!
