I have changed the heat element and the hi limit and the dryer is still not getting hot.
Answer Hello Sharon. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Since the cutoff and heater are new, you will need to check and see where your losing power at. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My dryer overheats then cuts off mid cycle. Which part do I need to replace?
Answer Hello Davi. If it is getting to hot and stopping, you need to check the cycling thermostat. If the motor is overheating, and not the whole unit, you will need to replace the motor. You need to test the exhaust temp coming from the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

I need to know where the wires hook up for thermo cut off kit ap3094224?
Answer Hello Gary. There is a video on the parts page that will show you the location of the wires.
Dryer will not stop on automatic mode. Does on Time mode. Replaced Timer but still not stopping on Automatic. Do I have a sensor Problem?
This issue would be caused by 1 of 2 issues. The first thing that you will want to check is your venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of the unit to make sure that it is not clogged. If the venting is clear then the issue would be a faulty cycling thermostat which is located on the blower housing. The part number is Y304475.
My dryer doesn't shut off at end of heating (timing) cycle. Only stops running and heating when I open the door. Do you have a cure for this?
Answer Rick, If the unit is not shutting off at the end of the cycle then you will first want to check for broke or exposed wires. If the wiring checks ok then the timer would be the issue.
My dryer will not heat on high. It was not warming up at all and my friend changed one of the thermostats. Now it will only heat on medium setting. My friend is no longer available.
You will want to check to make sure that the dryer venting is not clogged. You will want to check from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of your home to make sure that there is not a clogged or restricted vent. You can also take the vent off the back of the dryer and put a stocking over it and check to see if it dries and this will also be a good test to tell you whether it is a clogged vent. If the clothing dries on high then the vent from the inside wall of the home to the outside of the home is clogged.
Dryer runs for a while, then shuts off. After 45 min or so will work again for a while and repeats the process.
You will want to check the venting of your dryer to ensure that the venting is not clogged or restricted. You will also want to make sure that the unit is cycling properly and not overheating which could be caused by a cycling thermostat.
dryer not heating ! already replaced heating element what is next?
Answer Mike, check and make sure there is 220-240 VAC at the terminal block on the back of the dryer, or reset the breakers at the breaker box several times. The thermal cut off kit would be the next logical move, but you should test them both for a "closed" circuit with a meter.
