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

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

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.
