Question about Frigidaire GLER642A Electric Dryer
First, the dryer was running, but there was no heat. I found that one of the cords within the power cord was burnt up and actually severed. (sorry for my discription...not real technically savvy) I replaced the whole power cord which solved that problem. However, when I tested the dryer out, i noticed that the top part of the back got really hot. I also noticed that that section of the back panel was slightly discolored (light brown). So I took the dryer apart and got to the heating element and found that part of the coil was free of the bracket holding it in place. I reattached the coil to the bracket, cleaned the entire dryer of lint, and put it back together. When I tested it this time, the back was still getting pretty hot. Any ideas??? Is this normal? Any advice as to how I should approach this. Thanks for your help.
If it was me I would replace the control thermistat mounted on the blower housing.
