Question about Dryers
No available schematic diagram but there are only two possible reasons
why the dryer heating cannot be adjusted. First is the cycling
thermostat and the second is the heating element. The cycling thermostat
has a bias heater that varies its cycling time according to the
temperature setting to achieve the appropriate drying temperature. Check
to make sure that the dryer temperature switch is connected to the
cycling thermostat bias heater. The cycling thermostat is located on the
blower housing having four terminals. The bigger terminals are the main
terminals while the smaller ones are the bias heater terminals. Replace the cycling thermostat if the bias heater is properly connected to the temperature switch.
The next thing to check is the heating element. Make sure it is intact and no part of it is touching any part of the heater housing or the dryer cabinet.
