My dryer doesn't heat sometimes. , it is totally no heat sometimes, I hear many beeps and red lights flashing when I do dry cloths, but the drum runs well. It works when I try different ways. can you tell me what part I should buy ? thanks for your time.
With the lights flashing and the unit not heating then the best option is to gain access to the tech sheet that is inside the unit usually on the side near the top and run a diagnostic. This issue sounds like a control board issue but by running the diagnostics to see if there are any error codes it will tell you what to do for that error code.
Dryer gets somewhat warm but not hot. Takes 2 cycles to dry clothes. Lent trap is clean and air flows well
Answer Hello Sparky. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My clothes in my dryer takes several times before clothes are completely dried. I think its the thermostat, but not sure. Can you tell me what you think it is?
Answer Hello Robert. If the dryer is heating, it is most likely an air flow issue. You will need to check the blower wheel and all the duct work inside the unit.

Answer Hello Robert. If the unit is heating, It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
