I went on call for this 1 year old Samsung dryer complaint being noise like bearing gone bad & dryer shuts down leaving damp clothes.  Noise cleared up after a good cleaning, some play on rollers, & blower was somewhat caked with lint.  This machine is heavily used at a beach rent house (Nice @ $850 a night)  The manager says she washes several loads of linens each day.

 

The vent system is pretty clean but rather long, two 45's at back wall to move it over a foot & 30 foot horizontal run, it has good volume exiting this run.  

 

I found the thermistor was open at room temperature.   I read previous posting from 2 years ago about the thermistor failing in high salt/sand enviroments such as this.  The dryer heater would heat initially but I did not have the time or a load to dry to see how it would cycle.

 

My question is will a whirlpool dryer thermistor work in this case as I am going to be back on the island tomorrow for another job &  I can pick up a thermistor on the way.  A Samsung thermistor will take me a week to have it shipped.

Dryer was already revented from the roof.  No it is 30 foot no matter which way ya go.  The builders never take in account the needs of a dryer.

From the sizing grid it looks like the Samsung thermistor is just a tad longer at mounting holes.  If the pictures are accurate then looks like the Whirlpool/Maytag one would only be able to be mounted with one screw.

Put the Maytag thermistor in, an exact fit.   Left without trying a wet load, but in auto pilot with no load it went from lots of minutes down to 1 in short time whereas in timed cycle the element cycled on & off.   3 times the cost of the Samsung, maybe 3 times the quality.   Any way I have it today & repaired not next week.  Good for business.
