One last question for now, I think.   :)  Would you know of where I could find a schematic for the dryer to aid my husband as he is checking all of this and taking the dryer apart?

I could not find a schematic for that model, sorry.
Maybe another tech will be able to find one.

Sometimes they will stick a schematic on the back of the dryer or even better yet a tech sheet inside the control panel, like behind the timer.

Let us know if you have any more questions.
Hope you find our website helpful.

If you click on the parts links/photos I listed above you will also see additional repair videos.

Also have you husband take a look at the power cord were it connects to the back of the dryer. Make sure the connections are tight. Sometimes the connections for the cord can come loose and give you problems.

When they said schematic I was thinking more along the lines of a wiring diagram, but maybe that is what they are looking for.


Your dryer is manufactured by Whirlpool. You may find these two manuals helpful too.
