This dryer is leaving the clothes damp at the end of the timed cycle. Washer is spinning out clothes. Exhaust temps. on high heat timed dry cycle at 160 deg F. down to 125 deg F. Cleaned and checked all thermostats. Exhaust vent less than one foot to outside wall(cleaned/checked) Timer counts down seems to function fine. Temp. switch cycles at 154 deg F at medium setting and no heat at air fluff setting. Blower wheel tight not clogged. Nothing blocking front of dryer, good airflow. where do i go from here? Thanks

After the Aug 2014 flood the dryer is popping the GFI. So far, (disconnected the motor, burner leads, and various other connectors one at a time testing along the way) only when the cycle thermostat Wht/rd or Blu lead is disconnected will the GFI hold. All other connectors back together. 2644ohms across the purple and a short from wht/rd to blu with either wht/rd or blu leads removed. Is the cycle thermostat bad or is something else still shorted?

My dryer will not heat. I have a thermal cut off kit to install, which I've had to do in the past. I see the red wire from the wiring harness is burned out. This wire connects the cycle thermostat to the thermostat from the cut off kit. Do I need a new cycle thermostat also? This part doesn't come with the connecting wire. Can I order that wire replacement as well?

Asked a representative about my dryer. Plenty of heat, in fact too much. Can't turn it to down for delicates. You sent me part #3390291 to fix the problem. Does this part hook on to the heater coil chamber?

Noticed the dryer running super hot, even on the lowest setting. Did some troubleshooting. I'm thinking its the cycling thermostat, part number 8318268. I took it off the dryer and noticed it makes a rattling sound. Does that mean something is broken inside it?
