Question about Dryers
The heater element turns on red hot for about 20 seconds then cuts out then will turn back on and off the whole cycle. The problem is the clothes don't dry as fast as they used to. Is this a normal operation. From what I can see ther is a thermal fuse & T-stat on the heater box and on the blower exhaust fan housing also. What should I replace or how can I test to see what is wrong?
It is recommended that the airflow path from the lint filter catch, through the blower motor and out the exhaust pie be cleaned once a year for optimal airflow. I would check the airflow of the dryer to be sure no lint build up is obstructing it before I got into anything major. Feel free to contact me if you need further assistance.
