I replace the heather element. but whe I turn the clock the element start right away before I push the button to star the drying cycle. what can be wrong. when I stop the machine the heater continues working it doesn't stop. I need help .
Answer Salvador, You will need to re check the element and the wires to the element and make sure they are not shorted or pinched to the cabinet/chassis ground. If the wires are OK, you'll need to replace the motor 279827, the centrifugal switch would be stuck "closed" and allowing voltage to pas to the element, even in the "OFF" mode.
Took off heating element. Forgot where wires go.
Answer Hello Cyman. This is a closed circuit. As long as the red wires are connected to the element, it is fine. The terminals on the wires are a differnt size for the element.
You reccomend part # AP2976290 as the proper thermostat for a heating unit with 3 wire connections. I can't locate the part on your web site , or that of anyone else. Help. Thank you.
Answer Andrew, You do have the correct part number 3404153 for the: 180dgr. cycling, hi limit thermostat with 3 receptacles, that mounts on the heater assembly of your dryer. If you click on the part number I've attached, the system will load the part diagram on the AppliancePartsPros.com home page. I'm sure you'll be fine from there, Good Luck.
