Hi Thanks for the question.

When the dryer is first turned on do you hear a click from the dryer front ?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
it seems to be making a noise when i turn it on but it only makes the noise everyother time, not really sure if its a click

You will have to remove the door and the front panel to get at the thermal fuse.Do that and I will send you a pcture of the part that I think has failed.
