I have a Maytag gas dryer model DG412. It seems to be too hot while drying. It has even softened a button on a pair of pants so much that it came off by breaking out the center where it is sewn on. I do not know if there are upper and lower temp thermostats in this unit or not. If so, which one is it and where is it located.

Make sure you have good airflow to the outside.

There are two thermostats that control the temperature. A low and a high one.

The low is a 140, the high is a 150 degree t-stat.

They are both mounted on the front side of the blower housing.
