My electric dryer has blown the thermal fuse #40113801 twice in about a week. I suspect the #503979 thermostat may be bad. How do I check it? I have cleaned all of the lint out of the exhaust pipe all the way through the system. By the way.....I noticed the thermostat rattles when shaken.

Just replaced the rollers/ Shafts and Belt. Replaced the solenoid on the gas valve about two weeks ago. When dryer runs, as it heats up it starts making a buzzing or vibrating sound that gets louder and louder. The heat cycles on and off but the dryer seems to be getting too hot. Ran it with no heat and there was no buzzing sound. Tried it on Gentle Cycle and it started making the same sound as it heated up but not as loud. Any Suggestions?

I have an Amana gas dryer. Dryer heats fine and runs but will not turn off. Control knob advances only part way from More Dry to Less Dry and then stays in that position. Dryer ran for several hours the other evening. Duct is clean. Any suggestions on what part I should focus on checking?
