#250783 WED5540SQ0 - Whirlpoor Dryer has trouble with thermal fuses...

Posted by Centurion13 on 24 March 2013 - 08:13 PM

No, no!  I did note the temperature test, just hadn't the time to remove the unit and test it that far.  I was just giving information to let you all know what I'd gotten so far.   It is a $25 dollar part and I plan to replace it tomorrow in the AM.  


I also disassembled the remaining places where the air flowed (the lint filter, etc) and there was nothing stuck/stuffed back in there.  The fan looked fine and dandy, turned without a lot of resistance (it was turning the drum at the same time) and had no visible damage.


Again, am wondering if those stupid pills I took (and the resulting BOOM!) are to blame for this additional misadventure.  Routing the current straight through it all  without the courtesy of passing it through the heater coils?  Mmm.


Thank you all for your help, and please, have some peas!  Gomenasai!
