Question about Dryers
If the dryer gets hot , but the cycle does not advance or stop, then the thermostat is not opening the circuit when the limit temperature is reached.
This dryers have two thermostats, both located in the heating unit. One is the safety thermostat that blows at 175F, and the other is the Warm thermostat, that cut off after 40C, allowing the cycle to advance.
The warm thermostat must be tested and eventually replaced.
Here the part. Call the seller to ensure you purchase the thermostat that best fit your model (they both mount, but temperature setting is different).
