Cycling thermostat keeps blowing
Model Number: wed5200vq1 Brand:
5 - 10 years
I have a whirlpool electric dryer. There was no heat in the dryer. Everything else worked fine. I used my ohmmeter and found that the cycling thermostat was bad (there was an open circuit between the 2 terminals where the 2 smaller wires connect on the sides of the thermostat). I replaced the part, cleaned the dryer and vent and everything worked fine - for about a week. The dryer once again is producing no heat, and once again it is the cycling thermostat, showing no resistance between the 2 terminals where the smaller wires connect. What is causing this to keep happening?
