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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio - How do I tell if my heating

If you are comfortable useing a volt meter and a ohm meter I can walk you throught the steps otherwise you need to call a repairman, If you are not getting any heat and the tumbler is turning it is possible the element is bad again only a test meter can tell for sure or you can take the dryer apart and look at the element to see if it is broken make sure the power is turned off at the breaker first also unplug the dryer.

My Cabrio dryer is getting super hot in all dry modes. I have had to replace the thermal fuse. Obviously there is another issue causing this problem. Any ideas?


Melissa,
You probably have a thermostat that has locked in the closed position that is allowing it to continue to heat. I would suggest replacing the high limit and the cycling thermostat. Might not be a bad idea since you would be in there to just replace all of the thermostats, most dryers have three or four.

Changed top thermostat 11060832990 and now pops breaker


Sounds like incorrect wiring, like you have a "hot" wire going to the chassis somewhere. I'd double/triple check the connections. If you only pulled off the 2 thermostat wires, and reconnected them directly back, then it's unlikely that's the problem, but if you disconnected the thermal fuse or other connectors along the way, it sounds like something is hooked back up wrong. Good luck!

The heat on our 2 year old Cabrio dryer just stopped working for no apparent reason. Everything but the heat appears to be functioning normally. Help!


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal switch, in the element circuit, that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires replacement.
It is possible that your element has failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.
