I think on your machine the lower thermostat connected to one terminal of the element, you have a wire coming from the thermal cut off down to the top terminal of the lower thermostat, a wire from the lower thermostat to the timer, and a wire going to the other terminal of the element.
You probably have the wire from the cut-off correct as it won't reach the other terminals. You have crossed the other 2 wires. This caused 240V to short across the lower thermostat and burned it out.
You will need a new Hi-limit thermostat, which will include the upper cut-off as well. They come as a set part# 279816. This will be a little different because the new hi-limit will not connect directly to the element. There will be all the wire ends and instructions with it that you need to get it hooked up correctly.
There should be a wiring diagram inside the console of the dryer that shows which wires go where, but I am sure you have crossed the 2 wires below the hi-limit switch.
Post back if you need any help.
Thanks/Mike

believe that model has a relay under console..pull console end caps off remove screw on each end roll console back..if your model has an electronic bd it also has a heat relay it will be the one with 2 large red wires.. a quick ck would be to unplug power remove the red wires and tape bear ends together pug back up turn on dryer if it heats unplug and exchange the 2 relays the one with the blue wires is the motor relay and is same as heat relay try again if motor fails to start bad relay if motor starts bad control bd

SOURCE: how to access heating element and thermostat on Admiral ade7000ayw dryer

The top has a hinge bracket in the back. pop the front up with a flat screw driver. you should see the heating element there and be able to access it from that point.

SOURCE: bosch tumble dryer, model wta 4100 , no heat,

If the dryer isn't heating, check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Both components are located in the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer runs but does not produce any heat. Got a memo on the panel saying clean lint filter, which I have done.


The element may have failed if no heat at any setting. It could also be the thermostat but the element is more likely if no heat at any setting
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Hi,
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

The dryer runs but does not heat up


Depending on your heat source (gas or electric), your problem could be one of the following:

* if electric: heat element, thermostat or timer

* if gas: gas coils, radiant sensor, thermostat or timer

Note: In either case, check to ensure that the dryer is receiving the proper amount of electricity (110 volts for gas & 208-220 volts for electricity).

Only a little heat is going to the cylinder


Zuraxus what you are seeing is normal for a time. Here is how this dryer works. With a wet towel in the dryer, the first 5 minutes is testing to see if the load is wet. If so then between 5 & 10 minutes the dryer will turn on the 800 watt heater section (only in clockwise rotation). If still wet enough from 10 minutes to 15 minutes it will turn on the 1900 watt heater (heating only in clockwise). If still wet enough 15 to dry will turn on the full 2700 watts in clockwise and 800 watts in counter clock wise. That is how the cycle works. However it is hard to tell with the rear cover removed as the blower pushes the air thru the heater. Careful that by running with the back panel off you don't trip the high temp manual reset protector. So yes this sounds normal. What is the issue that is causing you to think the dryer isn't working proper?

Bosch Axxis Dryer won'r heat


hi there what u need to check is the thermostats and the heater element which are at the back take the back panel of should be the small 1 and not the complete back panel right once uve got it of there u should see the stats and element now 1 easy way to check the element is with a cord with a plug on 1 end now with the wire at the other end place the live wire and the neutral wire on each of the prongs make sure they dont touch now hold the wire by the insulated part and turn on the power if it starts to glow then your heater element is ok and u should change the stats if it doesnt then your element is faulty m8

Bosch Dryer misfunction


Check the fuse. This is a German unit, so every part including the light bulb is 208/240 volts. If the fuse for the dryer on the back is open the unit will not start.
