It will continue to blow until you correct the blockage in the vent system.
It may be internal to the dryer or external to the connecting vent or outside vent.
Find it and fix it.

Fault code 8 on a whirlpool duet front load electric dryer GEW9200LW1


Could be bad heating element, bad high limit thermostat or bad cycling thermostat. All of which can be ohmed out with a standard ohm meter. If you replace one I would replace all of them, if you don't you will be going back in there later and replacing another one of those parts

I have a Kenmore fabric care 220 dryer cleaned the left side sensor started to heat went cold again


Heating elements could be going bad. Or the high temp fuse is out. Check the fuse for continuity and inspect the element for any breaks in the wiring

DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

I have a 2 year old LG DLE5001w dryer. It stoped heating heater element replaced on 11/21/14. Worked 2 loads stopped heating, replaced switch, worked 3 loads stopped heating replaced thermostats. Did


Most Dryers has a thermal switch that when the air flow gets so hot it will shut down the dryer until it cools down or on some models the thermal switch has to be replaced .. The most common problem to cause this is a restricted air flow somewhere in the exhaust of the heated air causing the dryer to reach too high of temp, which could cause a fire .. Hope this information is help full......

Replacing the Door Bellow on Kenmore Elite Front Loaders


Hi. Open up the back of the dryer after unplugging it. Take a deep breath. This is not that hard. A dryer is a very simple thing but you need to relax and figure out what the parts are. A dryer has a very basic parts list. The obvious I will not go into with but here goes with the electrical in the guts of the machine. A motor to turn the drum. A heating element. A sensor to sense high temps for safety shutoff of the element. A blower for air. Keep in mind as you look at this that usually power wires are black or red. You will see some wires that are attached to a sensor and then on to the heating elements. Take a test light or volt ohm meter and see if the high temp limit sensor is bad. This can be a simple ten dollar one from Radio Shack. That is, it will it get continuity through it. You may have to detach the wires on this sensor to do this test. The sensor is usually a flattened round disc with two leads coming out of it. Test the element same as the sensor. Take the part where there is no continuity through them to the appliance parts store with the model and serial number of the dryer for appropriate parts. Maybe ten bucks. I know it sounds scary but you may learn something and if all else fails just pickup the phone and call the repairman. Hope this helps.
good luck

My Whirlpool clothes dryer model GEW9200LW0 stopped drying completely. The drum turns but no heat. It began slowing down the heating process approx. 2 years ago. Any suggestions?


Electric Dryer Does Not Heat
  • If your Whirlpool electric dryer is having trouble heating, you should check all of the thermostats, the thermal cut-off, all fuses and the electric heating element for continuity and proper connection.

Whirlpool GEW9200LW0 Not heating


Hi
You need to remove the back panel first then with a multi meter the easiest way is to put the meter on continuaty test (beeps when contact is made then with the dryer switched of and unplugged put one probe on the one side of the element and the other on the other side if it beeps then your element should be ok if not one of two things (1) Your element is blown or (2) there should be a fuse around the area of the back support plate it may be a normal round fuse or a ceramic round fuse or what looks like a brown rectangular piece of plastic with a wire out each side test the fuse in the same way as you tested the element if blown replace if not then put in a element.

Whirlpool Electric Dryer Won't Start


Your dryer has a non-resettable "thermal safety fuse" part number 3392519 which stops the machine dead when the temperature near the heater gets too high. Typically a restricted vent system causes this so you definitely want to check that before replacing it. A failed control thermostat can also cause this so check the operating temp too.
