Hi Limit Thermostat

Whirlpool 29 Inch Electric Dryer


The hi limit thermostat is a safety device use to open the circuit to the heating element if the temperature inside of the heater box surpass the thermostat tempera rating on the thermostat. It is located on the outside of the heater box, but it read or monitors the temperature inside of the heater box.

If there is a restriction to the airflow coming from the outside through the dryer drum and to the outside, the temperature inside of the heater box rise and the thermostat opens the circuit to the heating element.
