I just replaced the heating element and now doing the thermostat and thermal cut-off. Is there a certain polarity on the thermostat or thermal cut-off? I only ask cause I wired it all up and the thermal cut-off blew. So now I got a new set but am curious if I wired it reversed. If I bypass the cut-off the dry heats up and works fine.

My whirlpool dryer runs, but does not heat at all. Model number ler6620pq1. Research tells me it's probably the thermal fuse and to change the thermostat with the thermal fuse. Is this the correct part number I need to do this? AP3094244

My dryer was getting too hot so I recently replaced the high limit thermostat and the thermal cut off switch. This fix worked for awhile (two months), but now the same problem has returned. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I bought the Thermal Cut-Off Kit (279816) for the thermal cutoff only. I previously purchased the High Limit Thermostat (3390291) and installed it to no prevail. When the Thermal Cutoff Kit came in the mail I only installed the thermal cutoff and not the thermostat because I had already done that. My question is this: Is there still a need to install the jumper wire? Everything was in place when I removed the old thermostat and put in the new one, same with the thermal cutoff. All the wires were already there and crimped. I also replaced the Heating Element prior to the thermostat. At no time in removing any of the original parts did I have to remove or cut any of the existing wires. I simply installed the new parts with the existing wires already crimped. The dryer is working great now (thanks to your awesome videos) I just want to make sure I did everything correctly. There was a distinct smell when the new heating element came on for the first time but I am attributing that to it being new and burning for the first time. AM Iright about that as well? Thanks for your awesome company andservice. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends. The parts always came on time andwere exactly what I ordered. Your videos are very helpful and guided me step-bystep through the process of installing all the parts. You guys rock! Sincerely, Jimmy B
