Question about GE DVL223GB Gas Dryer
GE Dryer: DBXR463EB1WW approximately 5yrs old:
I recently replaced both heat coils on the dryer due to it not completely drying the clothes after long dry times. Now the dryer dries the clothes fine, but will not shut off in cotton dial setting. It will shut off in the timed setting on the timer so I was told the timer is probably not the problem. My next option is to replace a thermostat, but which one, I am not sure. I was going to try the drum outlet first, but I am looking for a definitive answer to save money by not replacing the wrong thermostat. I measured across based control inlet, thermo hi-limit right, and safety left thermostats for continuity and they tested fine, but I was told having continuity will not necessarily tell me the thermostat is bad due to it opening and closing @ appropriate heat temps. I did not measure across the drum outlet thermostat yet as it was located down below. BTW: the ductwork is clean of lint down the pike to the outside- I checked that first! Help????
The problem would be with the timer circuit in the drier. Check the board with any problems. The timer would work when used individually, but when used under cotton dial setting, the specific information from the thermostat would ave not reached the circuit thereby deactivating the timer. Try repalcing the board if possible instead of thermostat.
