Question about Dryers
I bought a new whirlpool dryer 1 1/2 years ago i had to replace the heating element three times now i need a fourth one i replaced all the venting pipes now the element blew up and melted the wires and blows out my fuse i had an electrician come to my house and all eletrical curents are good whirlpool tells me its normal for this to happen and just replace the element again at 75 bucks an element and going on #4 in a year and a half to me this is not normal can you tell me what to do and how to correct this thanks
Wow. Doesn't sound normal to me. I have two thoughts going through my head. One is that perhaps the blower fan is bad and not giving it the proper air flow. However the high limit switch should shut off if it gets too hot, which leaves me to believe the thermostat and/ or the high limit switch are bad. Naturally you want to vent the shortest distance possible. Good Luck. I know a good repairman could locate the problem. That's the problem, finding a trustworthy repairman. If you do hold onto him. Good Luck
