Dude, now you are 2nd guessing me...
There are 4 wires going to the thermostat regardless of how many terminals you can count on it, and if I expected you to test it first there would have been instructions to do so. Instead, the procedure is to replace that thermostat if the thermal fuse above fails, period. It has already been proven by factory testing that  one causes the other on this model. I gave you the part number and a link to get the part...the faster you replace it the quicker you will be drying properly again.

(provided of course that your exhaust system complies with the requirements on the label on back of the dryer...no foil, etc)

HMO

no I wasn't second guessing you I was second guessing a terminal with no wire and wondering if one came off. I just ordered the part.

Thanks for your help

Well i ordered the part you talked about repair-man and the dryer is still shutting down before the cycle is over. I guess i will just buy a new dryer because i have replaced all the parts i was instructed to. I guess it's just going out.

If it is shutting down completely before the cycle is over, are you able to turn it back on immediately?

No it has to cool down a few minutes before i can turn it back on. I'm kind of confused on what it could be now

Nope, bad motor bearings. A new motor should put it back to new, in light of all the parts you have used by now :)

Be dang sure you dont have foil duct back there or even worse, white vinyl. Motors don't usually go out except under duress.

sometimes it will run through full drying cycle and other times it will shut down and have to cool down before turning it on again. Do you recommend the blower wheel or the blower wheel and motor? can you give me some part numbers so i can see what these items will cost?
