279769  is this the kit you been buying. Thermal cutout is rated at 352 degrees.Have you clean out the lint housing where the lint filter goes?  Lint can build up in that.  If so maybe change the cycling thermostat.Part number

Check the blower wheel for lint build up and also make sure it's not stripped out causing it to slip on the motor shaft.

Hello and thank you for your reply.

The blower motor wheel seems to be spinning OK.  When I spin it manually, it spins about 1 1/2 times, and the drum spins a couple of inches. 

There is some drag, I assume from the motor, and I guess from years of build up, but I don't think it is anything serious.

Belt looks fine, I can get one locally pretty quick if I do need one. Does it sound like the thrust bearing is bad? Once removed there was some plastic dust as well. I'm hoping that it for sure.

Worth a shot, I would not do the job without replacing the belt too.

Whirlpool electric dryer GEQ9800LW1

Dryer had no heat

inlet and outlet vents are not clogged.  I always keep them clean.  Air blows hard
out the exhaust vent.

Tested Thermal Cut−Off was opened.

Replaced Thermal Cut−Off and Thermostat

Worked for three minutes, then Thermal Cut−Off opened again.

Replaced Heater Element

Worked for three minutes, then Thermal Cut−Off opened again.

Any help is appreciated.

Dryer Repair / Re: Replacing the motor of an old dryer

That's how I replaced the motor. 



But now, the time selector starts the dryer automatically, when it's on a time setting (out of the red), without allowing me to press the start button, and the heat settings don't work, as I explained in the original post. Low heat makes a lot of heat and smells really hot. High heat makes no heat at all.

"so as long as the clothes are still soaking wet the dryer will not stop heating and the dial wont move ??"

When it gets to temp the heater will cycle off even though the clothes are still wet. Then when it cools down a bit the heater comes back on.
As the clothes get dryer the time between the heater cycling on and off naturally changes as you don't have wet clothes affecting the temp.
Don't know how else to explain it.

so as long as the clothes are still soaking wet the dryer will not stop heating and the dial wont move ?? im just trying to see,,,I put some heavy wet jeans in about 20 minutes ago,,,the dial hasn't moved...but when I set the dial this morning closer to shutting off with clothes that were almost dry the dial moved and shut off

I think using the dryer in this mode is "low heat"
