    I know it is broke. Thats why I am here. I have been reading other articles. Could it be the thermal shutoff switch? If the dryer is run on air only it stays running. The dryer is around 4 years old. I can NOT return it. I wish I could!!!

    I just replaced the washer. It was around 15 years old. I did many repairs to keep it going. Due to its age & constant repairs it was replaced. The dryer is not that old. I can NOT just return it.

What does blinking pf mean


This means 'Power 'Failure'.
This could be from the circuit breaker being tripped and then was reset, wall outlet issue, or possibly if the cord was replaced then the screws conecting the wires to dryer may not be tight. Make sure dryer in unplugged before checking connections.
Some homes have an energy management system where higher energy use appliances are given a priorty so they all cannot run at same time so keeps your electric bill lower.
For example, the water heater and a/c system would be wired to override the dryer so if both these were runnng and then you turned on the dryer, the control unit would shut power down to dryer within a short time.
Hope this helps.

Electric dryer heat coil off mid cycle


You have 3 thermostats. By the description of the problem it sounds like it needs a new high limit thermostat. All 3 thermostats and the heating coil can be checked with an ohm meter. Also check the ground on the heating coil. It could be grounding it's self out.
