Let me double check that model number
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Looks like it ends in TQ0

With this dryer, as long as the unit is plugged in and the timer is set to anything but "stop" or "off", you should hear a faint "tic-toc". When the unit was working, did it take more than one cycle to dry a full load or more than 40 mins?

Yes I found Model Number MED5700TQ0

O.K. one moment while I find your part.

that is the model number.
and I do hear the tick tock

O.K. It seems that the exhaust thermal fuse (or Hi Limit thermostat) Has failed. When this happens, there are two parts that need to be replaced. Luckily, both are very inexpensive and very easy to replace. The first is the thermal fuse itself 3392519, the second is the exhaust operating thermostat 8318268.

Both items are mounted next to each other on the blower wheel housing. Here is a video on how to do the job.
