Question about Dryers
To replace a thermostat, 1st unplug the unit. Next remove the bottom panel (2 5/16 screws) The part under where your lint screen goes is your is your lint duct. Next to it on the right and back just a little bit is your thermostat. Most people change a thermostat when there are other problems causing long dry times. Check your vent to make sure it's clean and flowing well. Make sure your vent hose behind the dryer is not kinked or bent. Clean your mositure sensors (the silver bars on the inside of your dryer drum) by rubbing them with the abrasive side of a sponge or a smooth sand paper to remove the clear build up from detergents and dryer sheets. Lastly check the area underneath your lint screen. Is there much build up? This can be mostly cleared just by using a long thin vaccume cleaner attachment.
