SOURCE: Dryer seems to work, but duct temperature cycles

don't know how old your dryer is, but may have a 'moisture sensor', as well as a 'temperature sensor'. size of load should not make a difference, unless you're using 'no heat' or 'touch-up' setting. 140-148 seems pretty hot for the settings you listed! try 'sensor' on those settings, and see if the outcome is better! if still overheats, then you have a sensor fault, and need it repaired! as i've suggested to people on other problems- if your appliance is still under warranty- let whirlpool (sears?) fix the problem.
keep your filter clean, vacuum out your duct-work, make sure your external 'exhaust flaps' aren't jammed!
good luck!

How to fix Maytag dryer MED9600SQ0

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum 9 this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

My Bosch classix 1400 smells vile, its a rotting smell. I have tried several machine cleaners. Nothing seems to work.

I'm guessing that you use mainly biological detergents, and low temperature washes?

Just put the machine on its hottest wash, preferably 90 deg C. If you can get it to that temperature on a delicates cycle, then even better (water level is higher in delicates). A little chlorine-based cleaner, e.g. Milton or VWP, will help.

Once a bacterial biofilm has started growing, retail 'machine cleaners' can't properly penetrate it (and why would they ~ the makers want you to keep coming back for more). High temperature will always break down the biofilm.

Kenmore 700 series dryer little temperature difference between delicate and high

Using that thermometer I am guessing that the readings are close to what they should be. Typically there is not as big a temperature change between the two settings. What made her first think there was a big problem in the temperature settings?

The beep that signals load is done sounds prematurely for about a minute ,the dryer continues until load is dry then shuts off

On this dryer each of the seven automatic cycles listed on your machine perform different functions based on fabrics, load size or variables. In essence the first four settings (Heavy Duty to Delicate) relate to your desired drying temperatures of high, medium, low or extra-low respectively. The moisture level of the load is determined by the dryer's sensor system and the machine will set the drying time to an optimal level.

Whirlpool added a WRINKLE FREE feature or what one might describe as an extended intermittent tumbling time. This added cycle helps reduce wrinkling when you may not be able to unload the dryer immediately after the end of the cycle when the buzzer goes off. Starting this setting is a simple one button operation at the control panel. TheWrinkle Shield™ Plus Feature is preset to on during the permanent press cycle.
