You might want to recheck what you did and make sure that all the wire connections are still where they were.. Your problem sounds like a wire wiggled free after the dryer started to cycle.. I make it a habit to always check the work I did.. especially if it ( whatever it was I was working on) was working before I did anything to it.. a lesson learned the hard way.. Hope this helps..

My Hoover vhv680c tumble dryer is working but does not get hot I have changed the element but still no good


There are other possibilities. Dryers have one or more temperature sensors that will open circuit the heater element if they get too hot. If the sensor goes bad you get no heat. These are usually located near the end of the heater element. Find the wiring diagram and you will see them. With the dryer unplugged you should be able to measure almost no resistance across their terminals. Another possibillity is in the timer. The contacts inside of it could be bad. This is likely if you get heat on some cycles and not others.

Hello there and welcome to Fixya :
This is a fairly common problem with these whirpool dryers.
I will provide you with the 7 most common things to look for
which contribute to the symptom Dryer won't stop are listed below. Check or test each item and watch any available videos. If you are still unable to solve the problem you may need to do additional research and troubleshooting.
Show all parts for model GEW9878LW0 For the symptom you selected, these are the most common parts or causes, ordered by the likelihood of fixing the symptom.
othercausesandconditions.jpg Air Flow Problem The most common problem when a dryer is slow is when the vent is clogged. If the dryer is slow, check the vent from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house. If that is clogged, clear it completely and test the dryer. If the dryer is slow after the vent is cleaned, clean the internal ductwork of the dryer. This will require some disassembly.
blower-wheel-694089-00918612.jpg Blower Wheel

Item # 686172
The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft.

Item # 528055
The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

Lhe5700wo won't heat after power outage


the heating element may have burnt out , you can purchase on for around $25 dollars , also check thermostats, I usually find where the heating element has burned into, then spice it back together with a stainless steel electrical **** connector , check with ohm meter . heating element runs in a metal box shaped container and looks like a spring coiling through ceramic insulators .
