Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Dryer WGD8200YW2
Model Number: WGD8200YW2 Brand:
1 - 5 years
Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum Dryer WGD8200YW2 less than 2 years old. Stopped heating. Hi limit thermostat (part #3391912)was burnt up. Bought replacement ( new part # 8573713 according to Bell Appliance so maybe WP realized the HLT was faulty?), along with a thermal cut off switch and a thermal fuse because something should have turned off before the HLT burnt up. The HLT and thermal cut off are reachable by removing the back of the dryer and the heat duct with out completely taking the dryer apart. However, the thermal fuse looks like it is attached to the blower housing. All the diagrams, videos and posts I find do not specifically address this model, only similar ones. Do I have to take the dryer completely apart to replace this " one time disposable" fuse that is a common part to replace? I would think WP would have made it easier to access. Any other ideas or parts I should check that May have caused the HLT to burn up? Thanks!
