Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer
I have a GE dryer, model DHDSR46EG1WW
The ''overheat safety switch'' broke and fell apart.
This is the part that is wired to the start switch and the clock. Presumably it shuts down the dryer if it overheats. It is located on the top left of the heater when looking at it from the back of the unit.
GE suggested this part: WE4M160- THERMOSTAT, SAFETY LEFT (LOCATED ON TOP LEFT SIDE OF HEATING ELEMENT)
Is that what I want?
I would question the information they provided. The "safety thermostat" is listed as part number WE4M137. This is designed to blow like a fuse in the event of an overheat condition and is located on the top left side of the heating element (as viewed from the back).
Your dryer has two other thermostats (which one of the part numbers is the one you have listed). I do not know which is which, without looking at a wiring diagram, but I'm guessing one is the internal bias thermostat and the other is the hi-limit thermostat. The safety thermostat, however, would trip first in the event of an overheat condition. You can view an exploded view diagram of your dryer at searspartsdirect.com. Look under the "Drum" heading for items 505, 506, and 507. I believe you need item 507.
Appliancepartspros carries the part for $35.
Repairclinic.com carries the part for $40.
Pcappliancerepair.com carries the part for $37.
I hope this helps you.
