Question about Dryers
Hi, The top of the dryer usually gets to hot when there is an airflow issue. Check the 4" vent to the outside and make sure it is clear of any lint or bends. If the vent appears open, check the duct work inside the dryer. Airflow issues cuase the thermal cutoff to go bad. The less common problem is the heating element shorting out agianst the housing it is in. Very unlikely but possible.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
