Dryer was taking twice as long to dry a load. Finally just stop working open door and the light will not work either.

Jackie for Model Number pyet344aym

ANSWER Helo Jackie. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the thermostat kit LA-1053 will need to be replaced on the unit. You will also need to look for a clogged or kinked vent that caused this issue. The thermal fuse should read closed for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
