My 3 year old Kenmore electric dryer has three setting, low

My 3 year old Kenmore electric dryer has three setting, low -medium - high. The low setting gets the cloths too had and shrinks them. I tested the settings and the low and medium setting have the same heat. They both cycle from 120 up to 160 and back down to 120 in 1.5 minutes. I need the low setting to be less hot. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Low and medium cycle from 120 to 160 back to 120 in about 1.5 minutes. High cycles from 125 to 165 in 1.5 minutes. Think the low setting is broken because it's running too high.

With Keller Appliance and I am working on a Whirlpool Duet

Hello this is Bill with Keller Appliance and I am working on a Whirlpool Duet electric dryer. The unit came to my shop overheating and blew the thermal fuse. Inspection of the machine's board showed a severely damaged heater relay. One of my techs replaced the heater relay, but afterward the unit switched from heating to the point of burn out to producing no heat at all. All fuses have continuity and less than or equal to .2 ohms of resistance. The element is intact and has 9.8 ohms of resistance. My techs detached the heater terminal wires and started the machine with a voltmeter attached to those wires, the voltage between the two wires was a small fraction below 240vac. A manual power source was attached to the new relay and the tech confirmed that it would close (form a complete circuit) when 12vdc was applied to it. please advise.
