Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
this is one of two things, ! the heating element is bad, or two the high limit thermostat on the side of the element had failed, this comes ion a set, do you have a volt meter?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No I don't.

If I need a repair tech, please advise the potential cost. It's a fairly old dryer that has never worked that well (Clothes not dry and the end of the cycle), so we might be better off getting a new one.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
these are usually good dryers but your cost if you had a tech fix it would be around $60. for the heater and $ 30 for the thermostats plus your probably looking at $79.00-$125.00 for labor depending on who you call, you may want to consider a new dryer at this point since you say it never really worked correctly, thanks Bryan
