Re: replaced high temp sensor on whirlpool front loader
Hi, Here is what is happening.
Yeah fixed it by replacing hi temp sensor.
Then sensor went out again.
Reason there is another sensor that controls heating element. One is high temp, which controls the heating element from overheating. The other controls normal heating element temp range. What normally happens is the temp range goes out & heating elements overload the high temp sensor causing it to fail. Usually best to replace as pairs. Make sure your using the proper temp sensors as well. If you get temp range hotter than high temp results same problem.
Hope this cleared up your problem & fixed you for good. Please rate. Good Luck! If I can Help further please send comment.

Washers are more advanced and stylish than ever before. When you're buying a washer, look for features that make washing easier and more efficient, less costly, and kinder to fabrics. Thanks to advances in technology, it's all possible - and our washer buying guide shows you how.
Washer Types Feature options, capacity, energy use and style are all factors to consider when deciding between a front- or top-loading washer.oth top-loading and front-loading washing machines will do a good job of cleaning your clothes. The most significant differences between these types of washers are capacity, energy efficiency, water use, feature options, and style.
Traditional top-loading washing machines are available in a wide assortment of models, price ranges and styles. The most basic top-loading washers perform very well and are generally a good value for a no-frills, clean wash. Other top-loaders offer more cycle and temperature selections, spin speeds, and fabric care extras as they increase in price. Overall, top-loading washers are generally less expensive to purchase than front-loading machines, but are slightly more costly to run because they use more water and electricity.
Most top-loaders fill the tub with enough water to cover the clothing, then agitate them to get the clothing clean. Some manufacturers now offer high-efficiency top-loading washers using a number of different technologies. One such technology is the Whirlpool® Calypso® wash plate. Instead of agitating fabrics to get them clean, the wash plate moves them through a shower of concentrated detergent and water. The action is gentler on fabrics; it's designed to provide better cleaning with far less stress to garment fibers. And with the agitator out of the way, the washer has more room to clean bulky items such as comforters and rugs.
Standard capacity for a top-loading washing machine is 12 to 16 pounds per load. The Calypso wash plate model can hold up to 18 pounds of laundry (think the equivalent of 16 pairs of jeans).
Here is a link to some Whirlpool washers for you to look over.
Look around for stiff wheels, bad bearings, glides and idlers. Its a
good idea to oil the rollers with some temp resistant oil such as zoom
oil. Dont use WD40 as this stuff is highly flammable and may cause a
fire. Some previous repair PICTURES
I went over the part list and I didnt see a sensor, if it is there it will be two silver wire bars either on the back bulk head or at front right just below the door, possibly your timer has gone south too.
The only item I saw was a dryer cycling thermostat that shuts off heat when a certain temp is reached, here is a link; http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=2893&PPStack=1
