Are you trying to hook them back up? think of those silver things as like a light switch they tell your heat element to come on and shut off

I already sent this once but not certain it went throughSears Electric Whirlpool dryer LEB6000PO1 ( or P01) high thermostat.


If that is an OEM part you SHOULD NOT have to cut or change anything!! What is the model of the machine? What is the part number of the new and old parts. IF YOU CAN EDIT YOUR POST, remove the personal information

Dryer wont start


I have a Maytag dryer 5600tq0 and my wife had it for 5 years. it stopped turning on. i did a trick by opening the back and locating the small white thermofuse (Part# 3392519), unhook the 2 wires attached and somehow stick a small wire to connect those 2 purple wires together. Then plug the dryer on and if it turns on, then that ThermoFuse is blown. I ordered the ThermoFuse Part# 3392519 from Appliance Parts Stop on Amazon $3.37. I also ordered the small silver n black (with 2 blue wires n 2 thick red wires attached)Thermostat part# 3387134 $5.00 from ACS on Amazon because it works together with the thermofuse and all websites say it is common practice TO CHANGE this also. then plugged everything back and it worked.

Dryer does not heat up. cleaned exhaust, tried different cycles. still nothing. possibly heating element?


On the back of your dryer there are two over temp sensors, most times one will go bad for know reason, looking at the wires on the back you will see them going into a small silver cap looking thing this is the sensor , after you unplug this dryer remove the back of this unit, follow the wires till you see the sensor this has two wires on it , remove the wires and check the sensor for continuity . And of coarse inone is found then replace this sensoe it has the part number on it and if i remember corect it was around $4 , remember there are two sensors so look for both , if you dont have a tester then remove the wires and use a small jumper wire in it's place , start the dryer to see if it heating , if it is order the sensor , do not use the dryer with out the sensor , you could get a dryer fire !!!

Four prong cord three prong outlet


Ok this is how you will wire the three prong to the dryer.

You have 2 wires that are gold/brass in color, those are the hot wires.
You have 1 wire that is crome/silver in color, that is the neutral

On back of fryer where you wire it you put the wires on like this right to left Gold/brass hot, silver/nuetral, then the other hot wire.

On back of dryer you will have screws from right to left this color gold/brass, silver/crome, then gold/brass again.

If you do have a 4 wire cord the extra wire is ground and you screw that to the machine body.

HI I have a 4yr old neptune dryer that will not heat, everything else works, I have checked all I know how to check, the element is ok, I think the thermal fuse is ok the only thing I can find is a small...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

What you are describing could either be:
  • another thermal fuse but should read '0" ohms at normal temperature / condition;
  • sensor bar;
  • thermistor.
The exploded parts diagram starting here would help you identify it. Offhand though, it would appear to be not a part of the heater circuitry but of the general controller board.

To your concern on the heater failing to heat, some pointers:
  • there are 2 temperature sensitive protective devices in series with the heater. Failure of any would result to no heat;
  • the heater is activated by 2 switches; 1 in the controller board and another inside the fan motor;
  • below is an electrical wiring diagram that may be referenced to trace where the voltage would be missing hence no heater power.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Replace electric cord


First,follow manufacturers instructions if possible.

If you need a 4-wire cord you will attach the black wire to one of the gold or brass colored screws on the dryer hookup and the red wire to the other brass or gold screw. The white wire will connect to the silver screw and the green wire will connect to the green screw or to a screw that is connected to the frame of the dryer.

If you need a 3 wire cord you will place the two outside wires (if looking at the cord if laying flat), one on each brass or gold screw.Next there should be a metal strip or jumper that you will place to connect the green screw connected to the frame of the dryer and the silver or white screw together. Then place the white, or center wire, on the silver or white screw.

Instructions that came with the dryer should show you how to do this.

Make sure the cord is unplugged before unhooking the hold cord or installing the new one.

If you see something different that what i describe or need anything else just write.
