Question about Whirlpool Dryers
The new part (thermostat) has a heater built into the backof the stat.
Do I plug the old heater wires onto the new thermostat? The new part # is 37001136 as labled on the package but the part itself has the
# 2201115. The temp. rating on the old thermostat (#503979) has a limit of 153-15 compared to the new stat which is L146-15. There were no instructions with the new stat. should I use the new stat?
Also should I remove the old ceramic heater?

Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. If you have poor or no airflow this is why your thermal fuse has blown out. Poor venting of dryer causes overheating and therefore blowes the thermal fuse. I Hope I have helped you, Tim.

i had the same problem with my dryer and i installed the wrong thermal fuse for gas dryer which calls for a pink thermal fuse in which i installed and it works fine also check the lint in the front of your dryer. also my dryer which is the same make as yours seems will run on the fluff cycle until i replaced the right thermal fuse. my dryer run exceptionally hot and eventally shut down and it only run on the fluff cycle for any length of time.
