The low temp cycle does not dry the delicates anymore, but the other cycles continue to work. I have tested 3 components for continuity, 1 by the heating element & 2 by the air discharge. All 3 seem to be normally closed and should be still good. I think they are the thermostats &/or fuses. How can I pinpoint my problem?

ANSWER Hello Bob, You will want to check the temp switch to make sure that on low temp the unit is sending power to the heating element. If the temp switch checks ok then you would more than likely need new timer as the cam is not engaging the heater.
