Default Clothes too hot - thermostat or ?
Model Number: 47-2251-00/02   Brand: Tappan   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Our dryer is heating too much on all cycles - the clothes are shrinking.
Several parts on the parts diagram seem like they might be responsible:
1. Thermostat (seems likely)
2. Thermal limiter (don't know what this does)
3. T-stat Safety ( sounds related, not sure of function)

Any thoughts? Or any other general troubleshooting tips/ places to clean etc.

Please help.
