Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today.
Good evening. the one thing you should check first is to make sure your vent is not clogged, Have you checked that ?
when i first replaced the fuse, the vent was dislodged and the bottom of the dryer was coated in lint. I cleaned it out and hooked the vent up properly. So now the venting system works fine.
That is the exact part i used as the replacement fuse.
I was thinking it wasn't the heating element, since it worked fine once the fuse was replaced. I was thinking the thermostat wasn't kicking out at the right temp, letting the fuse get too hot and burning out. But I'm only guessing.
I have a VOM meter. how do i go about checking continuity with ground?
Also, and who knows if this is related or not, the timer doesn't work in automatic/regular/delicate mode. It just runs forever till I turn it off. It does work in timed dry and automatic permanant press/knits mode.
okay, so replace the three thermostats and the fuse again? just want to be 100% sure.
awesome. thank you. I'll just replace all three. no need to electrocute myself while testing a $20 part. they're just getting replaced.
thanks so much!
