This is the 2nd time I have this problem.
IF you look thry the drum to the back you should see 3 screw heads. Mine has one screw still in the hole and 2 empty holes.
This requires the drum to be removed (like take the drier apart). Behind the drum is Asmbly-shaft (ball hitch) (item 32 in the parts list). This what the 3 screws screw into.
I spent 2 days trying to put the screws in without removing the drum not possible (no way to hold the drum in place)
The first time I had to replace the drum because it wore the rim through.
I have to get 3 new screws and some thread locker.
I recommend that you check the screws every month, Use a long phillips screw drive

first of all. comming from a Sears Technician.. (don't yell) -- the delivery drivers only know about delivering stuff. they dont know too much,
if the two are the same size they can be stacked.
sometimes have to rig something up
and yes, for that model the top is removed, clips go on the rear and screwed at the front.
in some areas it is sold seperatly as a stacking kit

Could be the heating eliment..
A way to check it ---
remove the exaust hose..
Put a mirror to the exaust hole trying to see inside to the eliment(s)..
When running - the eliment should glow hot..
If its not - it migt need to be replaced..
Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)

Try unplugging it or turning off the power at the breaker panel. This should reset the controls.
Weather this works or not, make sure that the whole dryer vent is clear. often we find a clog in the flexible line, or where the duct exits the house. also there are situations where the clogged duct caused a lint plug inside the dryer. Assuming you can reset the controls, you can run the dryer for a minute with the hose unhooked to see if you are venting the right amount of air.
It is possible the heating element has gone out or one of the thermal disk has blown its fuse. If you turn the dryer on holding the button that is depressed when the door is closed so that the dryer will run you should be able to see if the heating element is getting hot because it should show as a red glow. If this is not happening then most more than likely the heating element has gone out. Most of the time they are fairly easy to replace.
a simple thing is that When the lights are flashing, it is an error code, which indicates a problem with the door switch. Could be a loose connection there.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com
