Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer Overheating - WED6600VW0

08 November 2011 - 11:23 AM

Oh Great Appliance Guru's, I am in great need of your wisdom.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer, I moved in March of 2010 to a new house and at that time the dryer started blowing Thermal Fuses at the hot air exit. That house had a really long 20' hot air vent and I focused all my time trying to fix the vent, all the while replacing fuses every two weeks to 1.5 months. In March of 2011 we moved again and now the dryer basically is connected into the wall and blows directly outside. I was hoping that this would fix all my problems but, I am still blowing thermal fuses. I spoke with some folks and they said it had to be a grounded heating element, so I replaced the heating element and the fuse, and blew the fuse the same day. The dryer is now getting really hot to the touch on the outside and you can smell poly melting. So then I replaced the thermostat, and the thermal fuse, again the dryer over heated and the fuse blew.

I think I am now at my wits end with this thing, have sunk 100's of dollars into thermal fuses, heating elements, and thermostats with nothing to show for it, other than melted clothes. I am throwing this out as a last gasp for help before I call someone in to fix it. </p>

Thanks,

--Josh
