Dryer Repair / Re: thermal cut off fuse, why?
« Last post by scrapiron on January 25, 2020, 12:26:00 AM »
Reason number 1: If the heater coil were to short to the heater box above the high-limit thermostat, it could be the only safety device that would shut the heater off and prevent a possible fire.
Reason number 2: It's required for Underwriters Laboratory's type acceptance.
Dryer Repair / thermal cut off fuse, why?
« Last post by paulmars on January 24, 2020, 11:17:07 PM »
Why is it needed? Ive only repaired a few dryers, but this looks like extra part. This dryer has the std High-Limit Thermostat, Operating Thermostat, and Thermal Fuse. However, it also has this Thermal Cut-Off Fuse. This Thermal Cut-Off fuse is located in the heater housing where it feeds the drum and looks more like a thermostat. Its also the most expensive part.

See attached diagram.

#1 Thermal Cut-Off Fuse

#34 High-Limit Thermostat

#42 Operating Thermostat

#59 Thermal Fuse

Dryer Repair / Re: LG Dryer DLGX8001V drum won't spin

I attached the wire back to the motor and all is well again. The dryer is tumbling and heating as it should. It is a shame that one would need to replace the entire motor instead of just the switch. Seems a waste to me.

Thanks to all that assisted myself in others to crack open there appliances and look inside. This forum and Youtube gave me the confidence to at least look along with the quote from the local repairman of $480 to replace the motor. Actually at first he said it was the control board. I don't know how I missed the wire in the first go round.

Thanks All.

Replacing the shifter assembly solved the problem.  Had to wait and watch a full cycle to be sure.

Of note: The changes between MVWC350AW1 Tech Sheet - W10468340 - Rev B and Rev C are significant, and specifically Rev C adds to the explanation and procedure for addressing this issue.  Also, the new genuine Whirlpool part has a slightly different number on its label, though same part number when ordering and it appears identical.  49TYZ-E120A replaced 49TYZ-110. I might pull it apart to try to see what failed.

Thank you again to everyone who provided information.  I could not have done this without you.  :cheers:

Ok after opening up the dryer and as I was removing the motor I noticed a wire had burned off on the motor switch. Is this what is called the centrifugal switch?

I would like to order a replacement switch as I hate to have to replace an entire motor. I am unable to fine a replacement online, PMS004-1.

I am thinking of just soldering the wire back on. Any thoughts about this? Not sure why it would have burnt off in the first place.

This dual fuel stove has electric oven. When choosing self cleaning, the red rack pilot light will be on tell tell the user to take all the racks out, otherwise the door lock won't lock and won't start cleaning, until the racks are taken out. I actually do not see any sensor to tell the computer that the racks are removed. Where is the sensor? Now the user cannot start cleaning even with all the racks removed.what is causing the stove not to clean?

Was the timer replaced by a new timer?  It certainly sounds like you have a bad timer.

Thanks for the input. I did not notice any vibration or thumping. The adhesive may or may not do the job over a long period of time.
