Recently the dryer will shut down after about 20 minutes of drying and will not restart until some time has passed and it has cooled. It seems to me that the dryer is getting hotter than normal and I was thinking that I needed to replace the safety thermostat or high limit thermostat. I read somewhere else that this could also be the motor. I was going to just try the thermostat route to see if that fixed the problem but after seeing the $100 price tag on the safety thermostat I was wondering what thoughts you might have?

Time drying on our dryer works fine, but if we run the 'Optimum Dry' cycle, the dryer will not shut off. It still heats, but does not shut off automatically when the clothes are dry. We like the 'Optimum Dry' better than timed dry. It seems to heat better and we don't have to run the clothes through 2 cycles to get them dry. Any ideas on what the problem might be? I would like to salvage this dryer and get a few more years out of it. Thanks.

On the video the wires are a different color than mine. My wires are white, single blue, and a double blue with a short cord and a long cord. My husband connected the cords to the new heating element and turned the dryer on. After turning the dry on it begin to smoke. I would like to know which wires go where.

The dryer was not getting hot. Found broken coil in heat element. Just replaced the heat element with housing. I beleive I re-connected all the wires in the same spots as the old element. Now the dryer will not turn on at all. No drum spin nor heat. What could be the cause?
