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

Dryer is totally without power when plugged in and turned on. CB is good. There is 240v at input receiptical. thermal fuse is good. Start switch is good. Door interlock is good. Suspect pluggable main power switch on the drive motor, which appears to be buried under the drum. think if cutoff or high limit thermo switch dryer would still run but not hear. 1) do you think it is the drive motor main power switch? 2) If you do, how do I get to it and test it?

Dryer vented smoke (I use a heat box into the house in winter) into house, I shut it off and found the top of dryer and the clothes inside very, very hot--much hotter than usual. Took apart the entire duct vent and and lint assembly and found it to be fairly clean, no scorched lint. The heating element and connections also not scorched. I am guessing the thermal cut-off kit?
