do you have a volt meter?

No.
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
ok it could be a thermostat or the heating element, how old is this? these are good machines and probably worth fixing,
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Are parts readily available?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
yes and by checking the model # XXXXX realized this is a gas dryer correct? these are a little more complicated to test and without a meter you will need to call a service tech. the average cost of this kind of repair is around $100.00-$125.00 with service and parts. (depending on what you need) hope this helps , thanks Bryan

No, it isn't a gas dryer, but electric. When I checked on line for parts, I got the reply that there was not an exact match, but gave me similar numbers. I suppose that they would work. Yes? Thank you.

thats strange , let me recheck the model, sorry, Bryan
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The machine also lists Series 06---does that have any meaning?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
let me check, I think thats the year made,
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
is this a stackable washer dryer combo?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

If I can get the part(s), probably should repair. Everything else seems to be fine. Replaced the dryer belt couple of years ago--only repair in 20+ years!

 

Yes, it is.
