Question and Answers


Dryer is way too hot on any cycle WED9450WW1


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model WED9450WW1: it sounds like the electronic control board may need to be replaced. The electronic control board activates and deactivates the heat element as needed, so when it fails it can cause the element to be active when it shouldn’t be active and to stay on for longer time then it should. I have posted a link of the electronic control board to view the link click here.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

Dryer over heating WED9450WW1 Whirlpool Dryer


Thank you for choosing and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is getting too hot.

In order to test the operating temperatures will require using a thermometer. Disconnect the vent hose at the back of the dryer. Set the temperature to hight heat setting. Place a thermometer in the airflow blowing out the exhaust and start the dryer. Let the heating element cycle OFF and back ON 2-3 times before taking your final reading. The normal operating temperature will have an average temperature of 150-155 degrees. The exhaust temperature can rise 10-15 degrees above 155 degrees and it can fall 10-15 below 155 degrees before the heating element cycles OFF and back ON. If the heating element is broken and shorted to the heater housing a portion of the heating element will be on continuously. Make sure the heating element is not broken and shorted to the housing or it will over heat. You can test the element with an ohms/volt meter to get a reading of 7.8 - 11.8 ohms.

Heat will not shut off:
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Access the machine control electronics.
ALL DRYERS: Remove the P14 connector,
then measure the resistance between P14-3
(redwire) and P14-6 (redwire) at the connector.
If 5–15 k? are measured, replace the
machine control electronics.
If the resistance is greater than 20 k?,
replace the outlet thermistor.
