I am still blowing the same thermal temp sensor on the dryer heating element housing after using thermal kit #AP39094224 and cycle stat #AP3131939. What else could it be?
Answer Hello David. Check and see if the heater is grounded out. Remove it and inspect it for the coils touching the metal housing. Hope this helps.

Dryer run's but no heat. Checked thermal fuse and heating element, both ok. What else should I check?
Answer Hello Joseph! Make sure that the dryer has a full 240v going to it. The unit can run on 120v but it needs a full 240v for it to heat. Also make sure the venting to the unit and to the home is not kinked or clogged. If the voltage and venting is ok you'll need to check the thermostats 279769 and 694674, they should read closed. Hope this helps you. Thanks.
My wire leads to the heating element are completely burned off what would be the problem?
Answer Arnie, There are several possibilities, the more common being : Low voltage to the dryer(under a load), loose connections at the terminal block and or the heater circuit components. A restricted or extensive vent length or overloading can cause the heater to cycle too often, and produce a temperature of 200 + dgrs. in the drum, causing the high amperage draw and wires to become soft and brittle, then burn.
Does the Thermal Cut-Off KitOEM include the thermostat and the thermal fuse ?
Yes the thermal cut off kit 279769 comes with the hi limit thermostat and the thermal fuse.
