I have seen plenty of how-to's on throubleshooting and fixing a dryer but my Admiral dryer raises a few specific questions that I can not find the answer to. When I moved in last month it was taking 2-3 cycles to dry clothes. After two weeks it would run all night without drying clothes, there was no heat, and it was clearly struggling. I cleaned out all of the lint (handfulls...enough to completely block off the vent) from every crevice and reassembling everything. It is spinning and blowing like a champ but I'm not getting any hot air. I flipped the breakers and it didn't help - time to test electrical.

EDIT: I typed out this email before thinking to check the coils of the heating element. Upon inspecting these I did find a break and I assume this should be replaced. Still, I wonder about a couple of other things so I would appreciate your time if you would like to read on.

The only thermostats I see people testing on videos are two-pronged but this one is 4. Here I'm testing for continuity on this thermostat and getting nothing, BUT...

...this is testing the opposite prongs on the same thermostat and there IS continuity. The picture above shows me testing the prongs that connect to blue wires while the prongs pictured below connect with red wires.

I think this is the thermal fuse? It DOES have continuity.


I think this is a thermostat. It connects to the heating element and also has continuity.


Here's the heating element.. which also has 4 prongs instead of 2. The top 3 prongs all have continuity when testing any combination of them, BUT...


...testing this bottom prong doesn't work with any of the other three.
EDIT: Again, the bottom prong is only connected to the coils, which have a break in them.


Long story short, after seeing that I need to replace the heating element, the 4-pronged thermostat has me concerned. Without any information on how these pieces are SUPPOSED to react to testing, I don't want to jump the gun and replace it unnecessarily. Thank you for your time.

Here are your parts
Parts for Admiral AED4675YQ0 / - AppliancePartsPros.com

See the attachment for the wiring diagram.

Picture #

1 Operating Thermostat Heater.
This is an internal heater, it adds heat to the thermostat when using lower heat settings. This causes the thermostat to cycle more often reducing the main heaters output. They are usually in the 5,000 to 10,000 ohm range.
You may be using too low of a meter scale so it reads as open.

2 Operating Thermostat Contacts. Should read zero ohms at room temperature.

3 Thermal Fuse should read zero ohms.

4 Thermal Cutoff should read zero ohms.

5 Hi Limit Thermostat should read zero ohms.

6 Heater should be around 8 to 12 ohms.
