Question about Dryers
It takes twice as long to dry clothes. I just cleaned out all the lint in and around blower motor. The tub is spinning fine. I replaced the heater element last year. What I noticed is the heater element turns on red hot then cuts out after 15-20 seconds. About four to five minutes later it turns back on the off again. Is there a thermostat or relay that controls this. Where is it located?
There are 2 thermal fuses located on side of heater box, part # 279769. These come as a kit. One of the fuses if blown the unit will not heat at all, the other is a cycling t-stat. The other thing to check would be your venting in the wall. If its not clear in the wall, it will take extra time to dry clothing.
