I'll start by saying I'm really only looking to see if it's worth getting someone to give an estimate on this thing, it's already a pile of crap in my opinion. (there's a zero % chance of getting me to look inside any part of this machine except the drum - damaged knee, can't kneel & can't figure out the back panel thing)
The drum turns, fuses have been replaced. The drum turns, the coil doesn't glow anymore underneath it (the last repair guy left the bottom panel off, and I can't figure out how to put it back, but it let me see that the glow stopped). When i have the door open & it tumbling, I feel a light breeze - very light. That's where my issue starts - I'm not sure if that's how much air it's SUPPOSED to blow out, or if it should be much more (I've never stuck my head near a dryer before...).
If this sounds like something potentially simple (aka cheap - last repair was $85 less than 3 months ago, I can get a very nice used Maytag for $125 with a warranty), then I'll call someone, but if this seems like it could be complicated (cost more than $50-60), I'm out & getting a Maytag. 3 Kenmore appliances in this house, all 3 have broken within a few years... I had a Maytag for 20+ years that had NO issues in that time (never should've gotten rid of it).
Thanx for any help on this thing, I'm ready to sell it for scrap at this point....
