The dryer Cycling Thermostat is also known as the operating thermostat and is responsible for controlling the high limit thermostats on and off cycles.
The operating thermostat rarely goes out. However, it is recommended by manufacturers that if either the high limit thermostat goes out or the cycling thermostat goes out to replace both at one time. No worries though:
A Dryers Cycling Thermostat is located right below the dryer thermal fuse, or near it. If it has no continuity or it gives an “OL reading” on the multimeter, replace it.
To test it, place one multimeter lead on the red wire (Top Wire) and the other one on the red/white wire (Bottom Wire) you should have continuity.
if you measure no continuity, the dryers operating thermostat it is defective, replace it.
If you have 4 wires on your cycling thermostat, test the top and bottom leads, not the middle leads.
Next on the list to check if your cycling thermostat has continuity, would be the dryers high limit thermostat, before we do let’s go over the basics of a dryer high limit thermostat. We’ll go into detail about what a high limit thermostat is and what it does for the dryer. We will then show you how to check the thermal fuse and then how to replace it.
