My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can try to help you today.
I guess the first thing to learn from here is not to buy anything from craigslist without first checking to see if the item being sold is legit. I know that you are taking a chance purchasing from craigslist, which is why the items are usually cheap, but please do yourself a favor and check first.
First make sure that the dryer is properly hooked up and wired into or plugged into a 220 line outlet. Most of these machines will blow a circuit or give you other control shorting out issues when it comes to drying. So if this machine is not plugged into or wired into an outlet or circuit that can handle that, fix that first.
If it is, and yet always in a dry cycle the machine will stop and then go on and off, please disconnect the dryer venting and try it again.
Sometimes if the dryer venting to and from the machine is either clogged or kinked the hot ait that needs to be vented out of the machine will be obstructed and come back into the machine and cause the machine to fail.
So please remove the dryer vent from the back of the machine and run it as normal. If it works fine then we know you have either a clogged or pinched dryer vent and that would need to be fixed first. If the machine still runs and stops then you will need to do some more checking. So please get back to me here if you need more help.
Thanks Jon. We will work with your ideas tomorrow. I'll let you know.
