Question about QuietLine WD-9900 Front Load Washer / Dryer
1. clean the inside of the door (behind the holes). Watch your hands, the holes are usually very sharp.
2. clean the exhaust pipe (with the crevice tool of a vaccuum) below the screen.
3. remove the hose to the outside exhaust vent. Take it outside and clean it out or buy a new one.
4. clean out the exhast vent to the house or buy a new one.
5. replace all of the thermostats (two or three)
There is a device on top of EVERY drier output or exhaust pipe INSIDE the machine that measures the heat. There are usually two and sometimes three. Each of these devices (thermocouples) job is to shut down when the temperature reaches a certain value. The first one is usually inside the door and measures the temperature which is sent to the computer, compared against the temperature setting you gave it "cool, warm or hot" and regulates the heaters accordingly. When this is working properly then there is no need to have any of the other ones. However, the others are there because dryers are very dirty devices and often fill the air outlets with "fuzz". The fuzz then insulates the thermostat so that it can't measure the correct temperature. The other one or two are emergencies to make sure you don't have a fire. I've seen dryers where all of these devices have burnt up. You can't measure whether they are working or not without a controlled heat source and a working temperature probe. Just count on replacing them.

Check all vents and clean the filters.
There should be a blower fan inside that circulates the air when the heating element is on.
If the fan is not circulating the air properly, the heat will build up.
There is also a problem of accumulation of lint in the air ducts.
This should be removed.
There are numerous occurances of similar problems to yours resulting in fires, due to excess heat and lint build up.
PLEASE be aware of the safety issue in resolving this.
