Question about Whirlpool WED5300S Electric Dryer
There are a couple of part numbers you will need. If you will go to www.appliancepartspro.com and enter your model number. You will be able to see every part in your dryer. Now for whats wrong with it. This is a very common problem that I see at least 2 times during my business day. The parts you will need to check are as follows. Look at these parts on the diagram so that you can see where they are located inside your dryer
#7 Thermal fuse/ Check to see if there is continuity between the two terminals on the part. If not, this part is bad. Replace. If it's good, check #9 the same way. Part # 9 comes with a part #15 also because if the part #9 is bad, it's because #15 had gone bad in the past and the dryer had been cycling off of #9 until it went out. Cutting the dryer heat off. One of the two parts #7 or #9 is bad. I hope this makes since to you. If your not able to test these parts, you can replace both and it will fix your dryer. Notice the prices are next to the part # on the web site. you can also order the parts from there, this is the best prices I have found. If I can help any more, just respond back. Good luck
