OUr dryer has a moisture sensor in it so it shuts off automatically when clothes are dry.I have replaced the moisture sensor bar towards the front of the door and that did nothing to shut off the dryer 1x when the clothes are dry. We now have to run the clothes 3x with the autosensor(not on a timed setting)to get them dry vs 1x when we bought it. I have cleaned the dryer totaly out from lint and the duct work is now cleaned too. After that, it still needs 3x on autodry cycle get clothes dry. Could you please give me an idea what I should do and look for now? thank you very much!

I put in a new heating element and belt and rollers and put everything together. I put in a sopping wet towel and started a load about 3 minutes later I start smelling a sort of burning smell and I thought it was the belt rubbing on something, but the belt was bearly warm. I took back out the heating element and smelt that to see if that was what was making the burning smell but I couldnt smell any thing. Would you be able to help me diagnose the porblem?

I am replacing a 34 yr. old high limit thermostat on my dryer with the new one I purchased (Part AP4036890). The electrical contacts on the new one are a little different in that one electrical contact sticks straight out and one has a 90 degree bend (with a small "X" and TOD printed on it.) The old one had two contacts with 90 degree bends, one of which had an "X" on it and "TOD" printed nearby. I want to make sure that I'm orienting and reconnecting the new one properly as I can put it back on the side of the heating element can two different ways, 180 degrees apart. The old one had the white with red stripe "jumper" wire connected to the "lower" tab marked with an "X" and "TOD" and the purple wire connected to the "upper" tab. I would tend to connect the jumper wire to the new thermostat tab marked with "X" and "TOD" except that I've now seen a YouTube video that shows just the opposite connection configuration using the newer model thermostat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQ6Dqygax98 (Minute 1:06) Can you confirm which wire should go to which terminal?

My dryer is an electric one. My dryer is not heating at all now. It has been like this for some time. My house has a electric problem in that my dryer does not get all of the 220 volts it needs to run smoothly. That is another problem I will deal with. Can you tell me what is wrong with my dryer not heating?

Hi - dryer has blown a thermal fuse. After replacing it, I noticed the temperature controls don't work and it runs very hot, even on delicate (low) setting. Now, it has blown the fuse again. Could the High limit thermostat be at fault? and how do I test it? Any other possible causes? Thanks much - Buz
