I have a dryer that does not fully dry a load in one cycle. I have checked and the exhaust line is totally clear. I am not sure can it be a limit switch problem or maybe can the element be getting weak as it is been in use for about 7 years I have used my meter to run a test to see what temp I get when it is drying a load. Seems to cycle in a range from 130 high to a low of 119 but at the end of a load some clothes are still damp at the end of a full cycle in the auto sense mode. I also have 2 other machines in 2 other apartments that have the same problem It seems that all 3 are doing the same thing and all vents have been cleaned multiple times so I am sure that it is not an air flow problem.

Replaced heating element and thermostat mounted on it. Still no heat. Heating element was bad for sure. What else could it be?

Everything work but no heat. Found heating element (8565582) burned out, orderd new for replacement. Question: Heating element has thermostat with regulating thermister installed on it (8577891), themostat is showing close to 0 Ohm, thermister is showing about 50K Ohm at room temperture and resistance decrease (NTC) with increase in temperature. All other fuses, thermostat on the unit OK. Is thermister value of 50K Ohm at room temp. look OK or Do I need to replace 8577891 also? Thanks,

My dryer would only work in low heat/fluff cycle and now will not start at all. I already changed out the thermal fuse.

I keep hearing a buzzing sound coming from my dryer, but the dryer buzzer is in the off position. Any thoughts as to why or where this is coming from? I have replaced the heating element in the past and I am about to order another one for replacement, but I'm not sure if that might be related.
