« on: March 28, 2017, 06:32:41 AM »

OK wife turned on the dryer last night, we use the moisture knit sensing setting...seemed to be running a long time..

Hi, looks like you have a stacked washer dryer unit, correct?
First thing I would do is check to make sure the vent behind it is not kinked or plugged with lint. I would also check the blower wheel for lint build up.

After that if you don't find a problem with the vent or lint buildup then I would most likely replace the cycling thermostat.

Yes, that's the thermostat that maybe getting week.
Yep, it's located on the back of the dryer on the blower housing.

ok so if I replace that should I do the 3392519 thermal fuse at the same time ? I chgd that last year for the first time in 21 yrs...
And isn't there another tstat back there too ?? If so do you know the number for that and should that be replaced too ?

And the actual dial/timer....what abut that ??

Thanks again

There is only the one operating thermostat on your model.
There is a high limit thermostat, but that is there for safety and would not be causing the issue you are having.
The thermal fuse is also there for safety and as you probably know if that was bad the dryer would not run at all.

If the timer runs ok on timed dry then the timer is most likely fine. The way your model works on auto dry or what ever it's called on your model is as the operating thermostat cycles on and off it also cycles power to the timer motor.

If you order the part from the link I posted above and it does not fix the problem you have up to one year to return the part for any reason for a full refund.

Hope that helps.

so is his how it works ?...I put soaking wet heavy jeans in the dryer...set it on the auto knit moisture sensing ...if 10 minuntes go by and the clothes are still very wet the stat wouldn't have shut off so the dial wouldn't move,,,but then as the clothes dry and the temp of the exit air is getting hotter the stat will shut the element off and advance the dial ??

When the dryer is heating the thermostat is closed and the timer just stays put because it don't have voltage to it.
When the dryer is not heating the thermostat is open and the timer then gets voltage so the timer motor can advance.

Think I got that right. Typing on my phone ha.
Either way power to the timer is cycled on and off as the thermostat cycles on and off.

That's the style dryer it looked like you had when I looked up the diagram for your model because I did not see a moisture sensor on your model or any electronic control board, just a basic model.

Hope that helps.

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"

"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.
