I could try that but the air flow to the outside has never been stronger.
Okay this will take a while, how do we proceed?
Direct discharge did not show noticeable improvement. Velocity out of machine and velocity at outside port and reasonably close using my duct velocity tool. Temperature remains lower than we experienced in the past, i.e. the clothes were noticeably hot, now they are just warm.
I did this by holding the door switch and turn it on. Both circles of red light up. remember I changed both elements as a precaution even though the resistance readings were okay at about 30 ohms.
Wow, not sure how you accomplish this as the drum sits in front of the heat element assembly. You can take the top off, but the front has to stay on so the drum can rotate freely. With the top off you cannot see the element assembly. Do you run jumpers up to the top and read from there?
FYI, the temperature at the discharge does cycle between 125 and 140 degrees F. Does that tell us any thing? BTW if I had to change the safety thermostat at $85 may not be worth it, the thermstat hi limit on the right is about $35 is possibility.
