Question about Dryers
I've put in a new heating element, the old one burnt out,changed the thermal fuses and now the heating element stays on even with the door open.It got so hot that it burnt out the heating element again and burnt out the high temp thermal fuse.So I bought another new one.Is there a chance that i've crossed the wires,I did write them down the way I took them off.I know it's and old dryer but I havent the money to replace it with a new one. Can anyone help me ???Thank you.. Tim
Tim, check to see if your motor switch is stuck. it allows the other power leg to be sent to the heater. comes on when the motor starts turning and releases upon the stopping of the motor. other power leg comes through timer, hope this helps.
