A little history: In recent months, dry occasionally stoped after 2-3 back to back loads. Had to turn timer to "off" possition and wait a few minutes then restart.
Yesterday, within 5 minutes of first load of the day, dryer stopped. I held down the PTS button, I could hear it tumble so I placed a brick to hold down the button. 15 min later, I check and clothes are cold and still wet..dryer is cold to the touch.
I tried switching the relays as I found mentioned online..no help still the same issue. I pulled the dryer out a little from the wall and noticed the air vent had been damaged and there was quite a bit of lint behind the dryer. I have read several threads and am not sure if I should replace the Thermal fuse and or the control panel assy. Or do I go out and buy a new dryer?
