Dryer not heating
I followed video instruction in disassembling and set screws from each section into diferent small bowls in the order they were removed. Hardest part was some of the screws were really hard to get loose without stripping them and my control panel did not match video but I figured it out. Replacing the parts were easy and putting it back together. While it was apart I cleaned everything including fan blower wheel. Thanks for the right parts and your online video. With your help and a prayer this 62 year old woman fixed the problem and dryer runs like new.

dry wasn't drying due to no heat.
I'm not for reading instructions. So I just dove right in and took the dryer apart to get down to the motor. I gave the dryer a thorough cleaning and replaced the 3 parts I ordered from the online recommendation. Wish I would have ordered 2 sensors and the 2 thermostats that are near the burner. Just so replace beings I was in there. Replacing the parts was easy, found them just by looking for matches to the new parts. Reassembled the dryer, dont think I put a single screw back where I got it lol. And still haven't put the top lid back on due to difficulty. Not sure if I even needed any parts, found a nest in my outside vent completely plugging it. But after a good cleaning and replacing the parts the dryer dries the best it has since we've owned it. The dryer came with our house which we bought 3 years ago and it was 2 years old when we purchased the house, so it is now 5 years old.

How can i determine whether i need to change the sensor or the thermostat?
For model number DLE2140W

Dryer will run, but not heat, stays on cooling cycle. Can you suggest the correct part?
For model number DLEX5101V
PartSelect logo
Hi Michelle, Thank you for your question. I could suggest you check your heating element, your thermostats, and thermal fuses. Make sure those parts are still working. You can test them with a multi meter. Check and make sure your vents and filter are free of lint. If all of those parts are fine, it may actually be your control board that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Dryer drum tumble/turns but doesn't heat up at all after basement got flooded. The only parts that i haven't replaced yet are the motor and the blower thermostat. I've replaced the main board, heating element with all fuse, thermistor. I tested the blower thermostat and there is continuity. I vacuumed it to remove lint. Are there anything else that would stop it from heating? Is it possible for the blower thermostat to show continuity but still bad?
For model number DLE4970W

Hello Rockko, thank you for your question. Chances are the motor itself needs to be replaced. If the thermostat is showing continuity it has not failed. I hope this helps!

I am looking to test the thermostats with an ohm meter. Can you tell me their resistance in relationship to their temperature? Ps3529026, ps3530484, ps3530486, ps8747887
For model number DLG2526W
PartSelect logo
Hello Chip, Thank you for your question. At 70 degrees the resistance should be 9.3K ohms, 90 degrees would be 7.7K ohms. at 100 degrees would be 6.2K ohms, and 120 degrees would be 4.3K ohms. If the thermistor reads outside of range then it needs replaced. I hope this helps!

Dryer will not heat up. Drum turns. Is it more likely to be thermostat or igniter?
For model number DLGX8388NM

Hi Jerry, Thank you for the question. I suggest replacing the igniter.The thermostat would need to be replaced if the dryer was over heating or not getting hot enough. Hope this helps!

Our dryer won't stop tumbling after the cycle is over. It stops when you open the door, then starts back up when you close it. Sounds like a bad cool-down sensor. Which thermostat/thermistor would be bad on this model? I found 3 on the parts list.
For model number 79691373210
PartSelect logo
Hi Scott, Thank you for your question. If the dryer is not shutting off, then you will need to check the door switch, the electronic control board and the thermostats. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

This electric dryer seems to work fine but prematurely powers off. Not an internal or external lint issue. Puts out heat up until it powers off. Seems to run without issue when empty. Runs on air dry without issue. Same outcome despite less dry, more dry, manual timer setting changes. I cannot locate an onboard diagnostic for this control panel. Two-pole circuit breaker seems fine. What would cause this? THANKS!!!
For model number DLE3777W
PartSelect logo
Hello Jason, thank you for the question. We have researched and found that the issue is with the moisture sensor, part number PS3529161. You may need to replace the moisture sensor to fix the issue. We hope this helps.
