When the dryer gets toward end of cycle, the timer will cycle off the heating element. (last 5 - 7 minutes.) This function takes place thru a resistor located near the timer switch, and parallel with the heating element. If this resistor fails, the heating element stays on during the cool down period. The resistor can be checked with a meter. If it doesn't ohm out at 4500 ohms, replace the resistor... Make sure power is off at the appliance when you check for resistance.

Unless the clothes are dripping, soaking, wet when they're put in the dryer (and it would take them a loooong time to dry if that were the case) there's bound to be a leak of some kind coming from somewhere other than the dryer. Do you have a lavatory or toilet on the other side of the wall behind the dryer? They dryer has no water of its own to leak.

Check the "Bias thermostat" for continuity with a multimeter. IF it is bad, replace with this part.

If your dryer still heats, but your clothes take longer than usual to dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:


Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer that is clogged, or has restricted air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to OVERHEAT. This will eventually will lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards.
Exhaust ducting that runs to the attic is usually the worst configuration, because the air has to be forced up. The blower fan will meet more resistance and any lint that does not exhaust completely, ends up stuck in the vent. Water appearing in the drum is another sign that you have a clog somewhere causing condensation to develop. FYI: There are no adjustments that can be made to any of the internal thermostats or heating element to make it run at a higher temperature. All these components have a fixed setting. If the dryer still produces heat, this is generally a sign that the heating element IS working. If the dryer is clogged, however, the internal protection devices, such as the Hi-Limit Thermostat and Internal Bias Thermostat will shut the heating element off prematurely to prevent the dryer from overheating, and to prevent damage to the heating element. Eventually, the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) or Thermal Fuse will trip and the dryer will not run.or produce heat. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

usually not. Take the knobs off, they pull off and look for screws under them. Check the back of the panel to make sure there are no screws holding it on also

The fuse is located on the heater housing we4x800 is the part number on most of these. Look closely at the wires on the timer each one has a letter on it the letters on the wire matches the terminal markings.

Each wire has letters on it that match the letters on the timer. Look closely. x to x c to c etc. If you need further help, reach me via phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/dan_73bbd84fe1d95b61
