Blowing thermal fuse at heating element. Both limit and cycle thermostats check ok. Vent clean, heating element good. Found booster heater at cycling thermostat open. Would this cause the heating element to over heat.
If the cycling thermostat is open it would not cause the heater to overheat. The cycling thermostat being open would cause the heater to not come on. The high limit may not be opening quick enough which could cause this issue to occur.
Heater Thermostat was getting really hot but the heater was not heating the dryer air. Is this a sign that the heater thermostat is bad?
Answer Hello Nathan. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
My dryer was running. Suddenly the motor stopped. No power.
Answer Hello Carol. You need to test the door switch and the thermal fuse LA-1053 on the side of the heater housing. If bad, they will prevent the dryer from running. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Dryer is making an intermittent vibrating sound coming from the blower housing. Very random, dryer is still drying normally.
Answer Hello Alex,
You will want to pull the cover from the blower housing and look at the blower wheel to make sure that it is not damaged. Also check to make sure that there is not a heavy lint build up on the blower wheel.
Dryer is not heating.
Answer Hello Mary. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater Y503978 and thermostats 503979 61623 40113801 Y504237 and see if they are good. Also, look for burnt or broken wires at the element. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
