Question and Answers

Q:

dryer over heating

A:

When an appliance doesn't work properly or gives out it can be very disappointing because you don't really know what could be wrong with it or you might even have to buy a whole different appliance. While I was furthering your search here on Manage My Life I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a response from an expert. I have attached the link below if you are interested in viewing while waiting on your response from an expert. Hope this helps, and good luck!

The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. The second image shows the same diagram with the heater circuit traced in red. You indicated that you had the thermostat tested. I assume that you tested the control thermostat. This is the component that could cause the dryer to overheat if it is constantly "closed". If you did not test this control thermostat then I recommend that you check it. It is located on the blower housing. It is shown as Key 15 in the third image below. To access this thermostat, unplug the dryer and lift up the top panel. Remove the front panel. Heat the thermostat with an air gun (hair dryer) and see if it "opens" at about 150 to 160 degrees. If not, then this component is likely causing your overheating problem. If you already tested this component, then a shorted heating element is likely causing your problem.

You can check this issue by measuring the resistance between each terminal on the heating element and the bare metal cabinet of the dryer using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure Ol (open load or infinite resistance) if the element is not shorted to the metal cabinet. If you measure resistance during this check then this verifies that the element is shorted to the metal cabinet. This will cause the element to heat constantly. Replacing the heating element should fix this problem in this situation.

I provided a 4th image below that provides a basic procedure for removing the drum on this type of dryer. Your particular model will be slightly different than the one shown in that procedure but the process is about the same. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. Internal edges in the dryer can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

I hope that these tips will help you resolve this overheating problem in your dryer. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.
