In my opinion, I wouldn't put much into repairing a ten year old dryer. I agree with you, and even finding out what is wrong, might cost more than it is worth.

Dryer is coming on for 3 mins and stops

I have a Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer that I purchased in Jan 2009. It does the same thing. I have had 4 whirlpool service out ot repair it and none of them could. Now I am being given a hassle from Whirlpool about replacing the unit. I am reporting them to the better business bureau. If your dryer is still under warranty you can try to get them to fix it like I did. But I can't promise that you will get anywhere. I used to think that Whirlpool was the best as mistake. I will never buy another Whirlpool appliance.

The control panel on my stackable washer and dryer got fried during a power surge. While the stackable is 8 years old, it still looks new and runs fine normally and has not been over used. The tech...

at 8 years old I think you got your money's worth out of it. (no offence) but if this is for a rental property and you are not close to repair any issues that may come up you have to ask yourself is it worth repairing a item that has and avg 10 years or less life span at 1/3 its cost to buy a new one. If you are not happy with the price of the newer units buy one from the loaner section of a home store or a scratch and dent unit then get the extended service contract with the money you save and you wont have to deal with this issue for 5yrs or more and should one come up you can have some one else deal with it.

This is a problem I've seen before, or something similar. I think you've got a bad connection on the neutral wire. Either in the plug or at the panel. Have electrician check the neutral wire back to the panel from the plug.

Yes. The use of dimmers can reduce the use of electricity and, thereby, save money and help conserve the environment. Dimmer use can also increase the life of the lamps (light bulbs) being controlled.
