This Bill from Keller Appliance, I have a Kenmore electric

Hello this Bill from Keller Appliance,I have a Kenmore electric dryer. It came to my shop, with a failed Thermal Cutoff. The thermal cutoff was replaced and that cutoff failed as well. Before installing another one, the machine seals were checked for leakage, and the exhaust duct was checked to ensure that air was flowing out, the high limit thermostat checked out, the element checked out, and the element is not grounded.After making all these checks the associate installed a new cutoff set, replacing both fuses. Within minutes, the cutoff was blown again. The associate then bypassed the cutoff and checked the temperature of the exhaust while machine was empty, it cycled from 120 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, which our checks have found to be normal for Whirlpool made machines.We checked the power from the outlet and found it to be 232-233 VAC. Why do thermal cutoffs keep failing in this machine, how do we check the possible causes, and what can we do or check to fix it?

I have a Kenmore electric dryer. The thermostat burn up. I replaced it, but must have gotten the wires crossed. When I turned the dryer on there was a pop and spark, the circuit breaker was thrown. After fixing the wires when I turn the dryer on the motor hums loudly, but the drum does not turn. Is the dryer "toast"?

My daughter just called and said her maytag dryer started

my daughter just called and said her maytag dryer started smoking. she stopped it, pulled it from the wall and made sure there was no lint blockage. do you think it would be safe for her to try it now that it is cooled? she did tell me that she had mistakenly dried some items where some feathers had escaped into the pillowcase. could this cause it to smoke?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: let me get that for you. it may take a minute or two.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: will probably have to call someone in. it is 6 years old Bravos MCT. another number she gave me was MEDB850WR0. she said when she stuck her head in to get the number it still had an odor of smoke even though it had cooled off.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: i know she uses it a lot with 4 in the family and she was getting ready for company, so when this occurred, she was drying a blanket for about 10 minutes. did the model number help?

I have a 4 year old Maytag Bravos electric dryer. It has started selecting it's own cycle and change during the cycle from 44 min to 1:39. It comes up with the error of PF. We had a technician out and he cleaned the points and put them back in, but it still didn't work. He said we needed a new board and it would be cheaper to buy a new dryer. We are on a limited budget.
