My dryer has new belt, new motor, but it feels like it heats but it takes 2 hrs. to dry a load of cloths. Is there a low heat cycle and high cycle thermostat? If not do you know what is going on?
Answer Ted, You most likely have an exhaust vent or vent hood issue. That's where you want to start anyway. Your dryer has two thermostats and a thermal fuse, The hi limit thermostat W10116735 opens whenever there is an air flow problem, and stops power to the heater,early. The cycling / regulating thermostat 37001136 controls all three temperatures in the drum. Basically, the hi limit switch is opening and the regulating thermostat isn't, this causes the dryer to take longer to dry a load of clothes because of the air flow problem.
