Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have a Kenmore Series 80 110.62842100 and the thermal cutoff went bad. I bought Kit 279769 that has the cutoff and the hi limit thermostat. I replaced the TC and the dryer is back to blowing heat. My question is concerning the suggestion to replace the thermostat as well. In looking at my current thermostat in the unit it appears to have one clip available for an electrical wire but the other end of the thermostat is connected to a white piece that has the heater coils plugged in on one side and the thermostat appears to be crimped to the white piece on the other. In other words the new thermostat has two clips available for leads like the TC but the old one in the until only has one clip and then the other end is crimped to the metal that has the coil plugged in on the other side. So, if that makes sense can I leave the thermostat out and should the unit still run fine?
