Whirlpool Dryer M# LE7680XSW1 - Heat Mystery
« on: December 15, 2011, 09:38:26 AM »

Hey Guys!  See if you can help me out with this mystery..... Dryer was not heating at all....

After removing the back, found a wire off of the Thermal Cutoff - put new terminal end on wire....

This dryer will run and heat, but then when it cycles off, it will not heat again unless it is turned off and restarted a few minutes later...

Replaced cycling t-stat part # 694674

Thermal cut-off part # 279769

Hi-limit t-stat part # 3392519

Still doing same thing heats until cycling off.... checked heating element, in good shape and not shorted..... checked for shorted wire at terminal block, none found...

I would suspect either the motor part # 279827

or the timer part # 3389864

but hoping for a better answer.... Thanks!
