Ok, WED7800XW0 cabrio dryer is getting too hot. It even heats up in no heat cycle.

 

I checked the element it is showing about 17 ohms and it is NOT grounded out.

 

I changed the Thermistor, thermal cutoff, and the high limit.

 

Still no good. Any ideas???? I am VERY stumped! One of the above should have fixed it!

I didn't see the obvious, how's the airflow.

airflow is fine, but the airflow would not matter if it is on air only. unless the new thermistor is bad.

If you're 100% sure the heater is not grounded (visually inspect that the elements aren't getting shorted during the running of the dryer and by checking continuity to ground) then it would be a bad control if there is no shorts in any of the wires.

remove power from machine, access control board, unplug wires from heater relay, check for continuity, if there is continuity then the control is bad

Main control board, if needed:  Part number: AP4538087

Part number: AP4538087

 

There are 2 control boards, W10298625 and  w10294317 I think it is the latter

 

Just wanting to make sure I order the correct part.

 

FYI it ohm'd out at 12. Looks like the control board is bad.
