Question about Dryers
Thermostat common problem for this machine ( dryers in general) bad thermal fuse, a result of poor venting usually.. with a putty knife or a screw driver the main top can be "poped" open , theres a clip perhaps 3-4 inches in on either side just under main top and from panel assy, after releasing the clips the top can be flipped back to reveal the heater and fuse are. the thermal fuse is located on the right side of the heater box, and can be tested for continuity. no continuity means is blown and needs replacing. part number LA-1053( about 30 bucks). if the fuse checks out ok the n i would check the heater assy and then the thermostat also mounted right there. simple continuity check for all three, all three must have continuity.
