Hello, I changed the heating element, but it only heats on a couple of settings. What else could be wrong? Do I need to change the fuse that controls the maximum amount of heat?
Answer Marlane, I don't think you need a fuse, but it is a possible you need a thermostat Y61372. Also check and make sure the exhaust venting is clear of any clogs or debris. Good Luck and Thanks
Serial number is S6469699YJ manufactured in 1990. Need to know how to install heating element assembly, part number AP4072871. Can't figure out where it goes in the dryer. Thanks
Answer Hello Marlane. You will need to raise the top of the dryer and remove the screws securing the front panel. Then remove the front panel. You will locate the heater 61927 under the drum on the left hand side of the unit in the back. You can access and replace the heater from this point. Hope this helps.
I ordered a thermal fuse which goes on the side of the heating element. I want to make sure I get it all wired back the way it should be. Will instructions come with the Thermal Fuse as to how to wire everything back up under their. Someone tried working on it before I got it and the wrong part was were the Thermal Fuse was supposed to be and a couple of wires were burnt up and I'm sure it wasn't wired properly. Just want to get it wired back right. Help!!
Answer Hi Boom. Can you access the inside of the control panel back. Inside you will find your electrical wiring diagram which will show the correct colered wires and the manner that the "series" thermostats are wired. The heater assembly needs replaced so the new wires will not burn. This part # is 61927. Also It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. There is a gray wire that goes to the bottom of the thermal fuse (mounted to the rt.). The top of the thermal fuse is then jumpered to the rt side of the Limit thermostat (mounted on the Lt.). Then there is a black jumper wire from the top left of the heater to the left side terminal of the limit thermostat. They have to be the exact "gauge" wire size to safely carry the amperage needed for your system. Thank You.
