Checked the heating element and found a break in the heating coil. Decided to change the thermal fuse and the the cycling thermostat because of the age of the dryer.
Were these instructions helpful?
According to multiple sources on the internet, there are two fuses that commonly cause this problem. I checked the continuity of both and found my thermal fuse had gone out. Replacing was as simple as opening the back of the dryer and unplugging the old fuse and plugging the new one in (this was disconnected from wall power obviously).
Best site I have ever used for repairs. First a list of what parts were needed was provided right from the start, no guessing. I followed all of the video's provided for installation instructions and and that was it. Very easy to make repairs and almost rebuilt my dated dryer to like new condition. Appliance was in very good physical condition just needed new components to bring it back. Highly recommend this site to anyone who can turn a wrench.
well i replaced a lot of parts..but i think it was the the lid switch. but now its brand new..Thanks
Remove back cover. Switch out parts (both plug in and affixed by screws) and test. Put back cover on.

Replaced thermal fuse
I initially thought to replace the heater element, however the website gave me a list of the possible issues, with the probability ratings conveniently listed next to the part numbers. Not knowing exactly which part was needed I decided to replace all three just to be on the safe side. The parts arrived quickly (about five days) and the installation was easy and straightforward. Total cost for this project was about $50 bucks, which sure beats buying a brand new dryer.
Took off back panel of dryer and be removed old thermostat and thermal fuse. Replaced with the new one and wired up by transferring one wire at a time. Took apart top and front of dryer to get to coil valve. Replaced with new ones. Repair person would have posted 150 to diagnose and additional 50 per part got all three parts shipped for 50 so did it myself and saved at least 250.
to make sure that i solved the problem 100%,i replaced all 3 componets.works like new now.
