Question about Kenmore 659 Electric Dryer
When the dryer stops the coils stay on w/ door open or closed.
That's no good....hopefully your house is still standing. Your coil is shorted to ground, so there is constantly 120v being applied to the heating element. It won't get as hot as when running, but because there is no airflow it poses a serious fire hazard.
