Since the dryer's made by Frigidaire, you should be able to sub it to the Frigidaire equivalent.

Well it was the valve coil that was the problem, so I didnt need to worry about a $160 thermostat.

Appliance parts pro says its a L180 F and repair clinic says its L100 F.I think repair clinic is wrong.
