If you can access the hole, you can seal it with a two part epoxy like JB weld. There is also a gas tank sealer kit that has resin and hardener. They are both available at any auto supply. The hardening time varies (usually two to twenty four hours). The repair can be sanded and painted.

What should we do? Our Whirlpool Thin Twin dryer doesn't get hot anymore.

You can fix it,, Here is an easy test and I can give you a definite answer on your problem and solution

open your dryer door, on the door you should see a little peg or clip sticking out which pushes into a corresponding hole in the on the front of the dryer. That's the kill switch for the dryer , it will click when you push it in, hold that in and turn your dryer on its highest setting.
Then look in your dryer while it's running , inside in the back you will see a lot of holes or slats in which the heating element pushes the heat through. You should see a slight glow and feel heat from those holes/vents, if not then I'm saying your element is out. You can normally order one through your local hardware/ appliance store using the dryers model number. For anywhere from ($20-$50)

Oil has gotten to my stater and has ran out of the stater plug, How can I fix it

If it is just leaking a little, remove the primary cover. Push the stator plug into the primary housing. Clean the plug and hole it goes into with brake cleaner. Apply black silicone to the outside of the stator plug and push back into the hole. Replace the primary cover, and after the silicone is dry, refill the primary. If oil is leaking alot, and the bike is a Twin Cam, check to make sure vent hose on the trans top cover isn't plugged. Twin Cam primaries vent through the trans and if the vent hose is plugged, oil will be under pressure in the primary and force itself out around the stator plug.
