Was working fine, then dryer just stopped working between loads.
when dryer timer is set to a cycle the heating element glows whether the door is open or closed. In addition...
if the heating element is staying on all the time the element is grounded,this is your problem the element coil is touching the metal casing or heater box and this is keeping the heat on all the time,this can pop the thermal fuse or high limit t-stat.your lint filter is on top,unplug the dryer pull it out away from the wall,remove the vent line and then the back wall,on the right side you'll see the metal duct with the heater box connected on the bottom,remove the two 1/4 inch screws and slide the heater out,but first if you have a meter remove one of the wires going to the heater and set your meter to 20k ohms,put one lead on the heater wire connector and the other onto the metal cover to ground the meter,if you get anything but 1 the element is grounded the coil is touching the metal box and grounding the heater out,do both sides of the element,then check the t-stats on the heater box one of them could be popped,also check the thermal fuse located over near the duct that the lint filter slides down into,it's a white piece part 3392519,check all the parts the same way,pull off at least one of the wires,touch the leads one on each side of the part you're checking,if you see 1 the part is bad or open if you see anything but 1 the part is good or closed,now while you're in there remove the 4 screws that hold the lint filter duct in place and up on top where you pull the filter out remove the two phillips screws,take the duct out and clean it also clean out the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line just stick it into the vent line where you removed it from dryer stick the blower into it and blow it outside you should do this like every 1 to 2 years so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time,hope this helps,you can google how to take this dryer apart and clean out the inside too. more so if it's gas but yours is electric. go here put your model number in and look at bulkhead parts you can see all the parts in your dryer
