Were is the Thermistor Located and is there a way to trouble shoot it to see if it is bad? Thank You
Answer It is located on the blower wheel housing assembly. You can test it with a multi-meter, it should read around 10,000 ohms at room temperature.

Hello, My question is, when I start the machine all is normal. But after a few seconds, the flame goes out. It turns the flame back on again, but for less time. After a few cycles the flame will not catch. What is affected ?
Answer Damian, Based on your post information, the most likely issue is a weak gas valve coil 279834. Since the gas valve ignition system cycles on and off for the first few cycles, the igniter and flames switch should be OK, The wiring inside the coils is weak and after a while the coils cannot lift the plunger and release and ignite the gas. Replace the coils and you should be fine.
Why dose my Dryer work on air only? When heat is it works of 5 minutes and then blows the braker.
Answer Hello Dave. First check and see if the breaker is weak and needs to be replaced. If not, it sounds like the motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. It sounds like it is over heating and is causing the issue if the breaker is good.
My dryer only works correctly on the timed dry cycle. The auto drying never counts down to 0. I replaced the thermistor first then asked a question like this and replacing the moisture sensors inside the tub were recommended. Our dryer still hangs on countdown at random numbers and never stops running. What else could it be? Thank you
Answer Hello Lane,
The only thing that can make the unit advance in timed dry and not advance in the auto dry cycles is the exhaust duct. If the duct is crimped or clogged, the unit will continue to sense the same moisture since it cannot get it out of the dryer and will run forever. To test the theory, dis-connect the duct from the back of the unit and you will see the timer advance within 5 minutes.
Dryer heat control is off. It heats to very hot no matter what the dryer setting. What is going on?
Answer Hello Lionel. Check and see if the heater is grounded and touching metal. If so, replace the heater in the unit.
My Whirlpool Duet Dryer panel lights up and makes a click sound when the start button is pushed and doesn't run. Any idea what this could be?
You will want to check the thermal fuse on the blower housing for continuity. If there was no continuity then you will need to replace the thermal fuse.
Dryer heats but has a lot of moisture.Code AF flashes after a few minutes of drying time.what could be the problem.
AF flashes if a restricted air flow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place, and the vent is not
obstructed. Check the venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of the home.
