Some settings will not function at higher temperatures. Things like delicate or permanent press will not turn out right at high temperatures.

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.

Dryer works OK on timed dry but doesn't dry the clothes in Auto dry.

Thanks for the post, Thomasin Savaiano!

Upon my research for your dryer, GLEH1642FS, l the range of temperature provided is what I was able to locate. On the newer model dryer the range will be from 140 to 195 degrees. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

What is max temp inside dryer during auto dry regular fabrics cycle?


Larry, I just did a test on two different dryers last month to see what the temperatures were for them. I have different brands than what you are asking about but here is what I found. On a gas dryer I found that the temperature went up to almost 180 degrees without any clothes in the dryer. The electric dryer went up to 133 degrees before it went into the cycle process. You do have a cycling thermostat that will keep it cycling around that temperature and then a high limit that will kick it out it the cycling one fails and that is normally in the low 200's where it is set. Hope this helps.

I have a Kenmore Electric Dryer #76974150. It only works right the higher heat setting. Will not heat at all on the low heat settings? Any ideas?


If the dryer is running then the thermal fuse is okay.

The temperature is controlled by three parts. There is the operating thermostat which is on the blower housing and is rated at 150 degrees. This is high heat.

The operating thermostat sits in a thermostat heater which is controlled by the temperature switch. The temperature switch controls how much voltage passes it to the thermostat heater. This is how we achieve lower temperatures. There is about a 15/20 degree difference between high heat and low heat.

The restricted vent may have caused the appearance of the dryer running hot.

I would suggest you check the temperature coming out of the exhaust. It can be checked with the vent hose pulled off. Any thermostat with a range between 120 degrees and 160 can be used. With the vent removed check the temperature of the air in the exhaust. At high temperature it should cycle between 135 degrees to approximately 155 degrees. This is high heat.

If you turn the temperature switch to a lower setting such as delicate you should see a lower temperature in the exhaust. It may only be 15 degrees lower but it should show a lower temperature.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem.

Sometimes lately, the clothes do not get dried. Then, again, next time I turn it on, I set the temperature higher and it works well.


sounds like you are starting to get a lot of dryer lint buildup in ur dryer vent hose or it may be kinked behind the dryer unhook and pull away dryer from wall and dry a load and see if it works better if so then u have some buildup or a kinked hose

Dryer runs hot on low heat setting


What kind of dryer do you have? Some dryers use a bimetal or snap-disc thermostat with a heating element under it to control temperature. the heating element is used for the low heat setting to make it turn off early since it will sense a temperature higher that what is actually there. If the heating element is bad then the thermosat will only operate at the high temperature. You should look at replacing that element.
