This began while dryer was in use and I heard a loud "pop" from the other room. Guessing its a fuse of some sort?? No tripped circuits on the breaker in the house. The dryer works just fine I just have to keep checking to see if clothes are dry.

If you heard a loud pop, then I would definitely say that you have a broken belt. As far as the blower not working as well, if you are having drying times that are taking longer, then you should check your vent line for blockages or build up of lint. Hope this helps!
Well it sounds like a sound I have heard... forgetting that I had a cigarette lighter in my pocket and having it explode from the heat in the dryer. But you say you heard two loud pops?
Once everything cools down, check again and report back... does the dryer not turn on at all? Does the light come on when you open the door? Does it buzz when you push the start button? Stuff like that.
Fuse is ok . Problem is the soils on the burner valve . If the dryer heats when started , the electricity goes thru the coils to open the valve . Once the coils get warm , 1 will open (short) until it cools back down . The coils can be replaced just by removing the front panel . Only 2 screws hold the coils in place . No turning off gas , dissasembling dryer .
Here are a list of causes that may contribute to this lack of sufficient drying.
CAUSE • Lint screen is clogged with lint. • Restricted air movement. Exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood is clogged with lint. • Exhaust vent is crushed or kinked. • One fuse is blown or circuit breaker is tripped. The dryer will appear to operate, but you will not get any heat. • Cycle Control knob or temperature selector is set on air dry. • Load not contacting the sensor strips and automatic cycle ending early. • Fabric softener sheets blocking exhaust grill. • Dryer located in room with temperature below 45ºF (7ºC). • Large amount of moisture in the load. • Cold rinse water used. • Load too large and bulky to dry quickly.
Here are the solutions to combat the issues.
SOLUTION • Clean lint screen. • Run dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold hand under outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not feel air moving, clean exhaust system of lint or replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. • Replace with heavy metal or flexible metal vent
• Replace fuse or reset breaker. • Select the right cycle and temperature for the types of garments being dried. • Level dryer. • Use only one softener sheet per load and only use it once. • Move dryer to a location with temperatures above 45ºF (7ºC). • Expect longer dry times with items that hold more moisture (cottons). • Expect longer dry times. • Separate load to tumble freely.
This will help you fix this problem. i suspect an exhaust obstruction.
It sounds like a timer problem since it happens during timed also. Some dryers don't have an actual moisture sensor for auto dry. They work by knowing that as long as the clothes are wet the temp won't go past a certain point. As the clothes dry it trips a thermostat that lets the timer advance. Until this is fixed DON"T trust the timer to shut off the dryer. Sometimes it won't or could leave the dryer running for hours. This has nothing whatsoever to do with fuses. There are no fuses in a dryer. Just high limit thermostats and other devices that will shut off the heat but usually not the motor.
yes very possible timer but my guess on the times i seen the problem would be the heating element are the thermo fuse on the elemnt canister when the heater does not come on the timer will not move ck the heater and the fuses on the heater canister it will fix your problem
