On the element case left side there are 2 componets the upper is the high limit fuse which will open the heater wire when high temp is reached for saftey , it should ohm out with a meter , if you dont have a meter bypass this fuse by tieing the 2 wires together and then try running the dryer and check for heat.

the lower componet is the high limit t-stat which should be working but if the fuse above it has went out you should replace the fuse and this t-stat , they come in a kit together here is the part number , they are easy to find online.

After one 80 minute drying cycle, the clothes are still just as wet and the dryer lint in the lint screen is wet. It takes 3 cylces to dry clothes. I've already replaced the heating element. The dryer vent...


Depending on the make and model, you should have a temperature sensor somewhere on the heating element box. That may be malfunctioning. They are usually less that $10 USD and replacement is real easy. Simply unbolt the old one, pull the two wire from it, put the wires on the new one and rebolt it to the heater unit.

Hi I am trying to clean my drain unsder my washer. I do not know how to pull the cover off.?? It appears I need special alan wrenchs for two little screws..?? any ideas??


Though the idea of repairing a clothes dryer can be pretty intimidating, the truth is that some types of repairs are surprisingly easy. Yes, dryers appear to be built like huge, impervious metal boxes, but they are typically pretty easy to open and relatively simple to fix.


As shown at How Clothes Dryers Works, a clothes dryer has a motor that turns a big drum containing the clothes, a heat source for blowing warm air into the drum to dry the clothes, and controls for operating the motor and heat source.
Some dryers have an electric element to do the heating while others utilize a gas flame; the latter must be vented.
Clothes dryer problems generally occur because the heat source doesn't heat properly or the motor fails to turn the drum.
If a gas dryer doesn't dry properly, the first thing to check is the pilot light or igniter--it may not be lighting the burner. The second thing to check is the dryer's vent-if it is clogged with lint, the heating system won't work properly.

Pay attention to basic safety measures when working on a dryer. Always unplug the dryer, and turn off the gas supply to a gas dryer at the appliance shutoff valve.
As with most appliances, maintenance will keep your dryer purring. Clean the lint trap after every load, and clean the vent system once a year.
