The thermostat which is a round 2 wire control on the blower box on the back of the dryer controls the heat on all dryers. always shut off power when checking any electrical appliance. Clothes dryers are wired with 2 voltages, The 240 volt supply is for the heating element only, while the 120 volt supply gives power to the timer and motor that spins the drum and powers any lights and switches. If the heating element is coming on, try replacing the thermostat. As always unplug the dryer first.
You may have to get a new heating element when they go out the jet dryer where the heat comes out will not work normally this is caused buy a bad heat element. If not take back panel off and check the little white fuse and replace it, Almost all dryers are the same in that area.. Hope that helps....
Thermostat maybe? The fact that it is heating would indicate that all the circuits are good. I am thinking you damaged the thermostat - the metal expands with heat which breaks the contact and when it cools the metal flattens out to make a closed circuit - turning on the heat which then heats the metal and once again expands making the metal curve away to open the circuit,
You need to test the thermal overload, When elements go they can damage the overloads, You can do it easily with a multimeter and they are not expensive to replace. There may be one or 2 of them and can be found inline with the element wiring.
Hello there : what you are going to want to do is to troubleshoot the heating circuit if you have a multimeter there is a thermal Cut-Out switch that is connected to the heater box.) -simply unplug wires
and take reading from the end connetors your reading should be 0 ohms. and nothing else Next check a part called the Hi-Limit
Thermostat that is connected to the heater box, it should be located closest to the heating element wire leads unplug the wires and take the reading across the 2 wire connections . this should give you a reading of 0 ohms and nothing else. Now if any of these 2 parts are not in this range they need to be replaced and i would recommend that you replace them as a set cause if one usually goes out then the other one will soon follow ok I hope this is very helpful for you Best regards Michael
