Dryer Overheating after changed thermistors
Model Number: DE882 Brand: Maytag Age: More than 10 years
No heat but motor/drum started.
Found shorted wire at terminal block (light blue wire) where power cord connects. I have not replaced terminal block but on order. Replaced burnt wire end with new eyelet connection.
Dryer started but still no heat. Heater Core was found to be shorted so I replaced entire unit. Also noted burnt Black Wire at heater attachment but did not replace burnt end (suspect it needs high temp connector which I will have to order).
Seems like new heater core had harder time fitting into back of dryer intake inlet but was able to get into opening
Dryer started and heat is impressive but not sure it was cycling properly with temperature (being too high)
I replaced fuse and motor/high temp thermistor on heater just in case but no change in heat pattern.
What's left, back of dryer seems too hot, no outlets are blocked
