Dryer gets way to hot. I mean very hot. You can't even hardly touch the clothes so hot. And that's on all settings. What is the problem.

Dryer gets really hot and shuts off mid cycle when set on high. Will restart when cools off. Will complete a full cycle when set on low. Any ideas?? Same result when not hooked to wall vent. Air blows strong out of back of unit.

Heat and lent were escaping excessively. Took the dryer apart and found several problems that all seemed to lead back to too much heat escaping and melting things that helped keep the lent where it should be and the drum turning properly and balanced. We replaced the front and rear felt drum seals, the blower seal, duct tape around the exhaust pipe, and the felt drum pads in the front. Put the dryer back together but left the top open. Ran the dryer a few seconds at a time. Found the drum turning incredibly slow but not sure why. The heating element got so hot so fast that it melted some of the rear drum felt seal in seconds and started to melt the plastic clips attached to the top panel. It appears the thermostat is directly above the coils and is no doubt being baked or already baked. How do we determine if the problem is the thermostat or the thermal fuse? Is there anything else we could have accidentally mixed up when putting everything back together that would cause this overheating? Thanks.

The dryer works fine with timed drying. But it will not work on other cycles properly. It takes long while move from more dryer to less dryer or it just do not move. Then it will move from less dry to prior to wrinkle out. Then it stops at the wrinkle out cycle.

The thermal fuse has blown twice on me now. Do you know what temp this fuse blows at? I'm trying to understand if the fuse is very conservatively rated because it does not blow until after the third load of clothes in a row is run, and it is very hot where the dryer is located (a garage, and this is in Florida).
