, welcome to Just answer
How old is it and have you tested the thermostat ?
APPROX 7 YEARS OLD. THERMOSTAT WHERE? DRYING CYCLE HAS VARIABLE TEMP SELECTION RANGE . SO I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WILL BE A TEMP DETECTOR
THERE IS A SENSOR OF SOME DESCRIPTION BETWEEN THE ELEMENT TERMINALS?
This is the thermsotat
THERE ARE TWO THERMOSTATS LIKE ABOVE BUT THEY ARE LOCATED IN THE CONDESER PART OR THE MACHINE. THERE IS A MINIATURE COMPUTER LIKE EDGE CONNECTOR ON THE SENSOR I CAN SEE AT THE ELEMENT.
PS DO YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A WIRING DIAGRAM
not that connector...the thermostat or there may be two...located on top of the heater box
The thermal fuse is usually a single wire clamped to the top
yes there are two located at top of the box plse let me flash up my drwg of it
ok disconnect the wires and test them circuit
I am not at the house at present. I will test ltr. what is the purpose of the bottom element and sensor then.
this is a washer dryer
I was looking at the mechanical drwg and thought in the box the heater there was to induce condensate from the circulating air.
which element were you checking the heater box at the top or the one located at the back ?
OK GOT THAT I FORGOT ABOUT THE HEATING OF THE WATER
THE BOTTOM. NOW I REALISE THAT I WAS IN THE WRONG PLACE PLEASE CONFIRM
ARE YOU STIL THERE KEVIN
OK, still please check the thermostat bottom...also take the top off and check the top of the tub
there is the dryer heater box
on the top of this heater box you will find the thermostat or thermsotats
please check both to make sure they are fine
I TESTED THE BOTTOM STAT/DETECTOR( CAN YOU CONFIRM IF THIS BOTTOM ON IS A DETECTOR OR JUST A STAT. I THINK IT MAY BE A SENSOR AS I WAS PICKING UP A HIGH RESISTANCE READING
that might be the stat element
I mean as you are checking the bottom element
OK PS THIS ALSO MEANS THAT I CHECKED THE WRONG ELEMENT AND SHOULD NOW CHECK TOP ELEMENT IN BOX PLEASE CONFIRM
but still it will be better to check the heater box at the top of the tub and make sure those have continuity
Yes that is correct
OK HOW DO I GET BACK TO YOU LATER I
