Question about Dryers
Hello, The most likely problem is a bad thermal fuse ( the little white looking piece) or a bad thermal limit ( the piece with two wires toward the top of the heat element duct). Both of these are located behind the back cover. Be sure to unplug the dryer before checking these with your volt/ohm meter. They usually go bad because of overheating from lack of air flow. Meaning the vent hose and ducting probably need to be cleaned. You can goto - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action - to get a parts breakdown and pricing on most brands. Good Luck
