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

Latest Questions

Trying to hook up thermal cut off kit- every video shows an orange wire- my dryer does not have an orange wire- it has two very small diameter red wires coming out of original thermal cut off- cannot disconnect - the kit 270816 used for replacement does not address this. It talks about splicing the orange wire and putting enclosed terminal ends to hook up kit- I'm sure I am not supposed to splice these two small wires- they are permanently connected to original thermal cut off (thermostat?) and bundled with wiring harness- please help!

The dryer timer will not advance. I changed the timer switch and thermal fuse. The result is the same. It has heat but it still doesn't advance the timer.
