Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
Replaced the heating element - broken wire. Also replaced the thermostat and fuse. Not sure I got the wires in the correct position. Drying fine but clothes are extremely hot when the cycle is finished. Not sure the sensor is working?
Is the position of the wire on the thermostat and fuse important to regulating the heating element?
Thanks for your help?
The heating element failure along with the symptoms you are now experiencing, may indicate blocked or restricted air flow through the exhaust. If airflow is poor, the heater will overheat and eventually fail.
Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it it not crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check the outside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, the exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers and at this web site: http://www.linteater.com/.
