Dryer would run, but not heat
Needed it running quick, so no diagnostics. Ordered one of everything that could fix problem (plus a new door catch). Tipped it onto it's back & popped the bottom cover off. Element, thermal cutoff, thermistor, and fuse. were right in front and held by 2 screws each (don't drop them, don't ask). A little bit tight inside, but no big issue. vacuumed the inside, replaced everything (it was the Heating Element, by the way), slapped the cover on, and put it back in its spot. works like it was new. Yes, I unplugged it first. Remember! Safety Third!

the dryer got to hot.
dryer got to hot and shut off with an Error message "E1". Found this site after many. Better explanations and half the price for the part verses Sears. I had watched Sears Tech. Tear down the machine before so i had a pretty good idea how to do it. Takes two people, just for that extra hand to hold things. The Electrical connection clips were kind of tricky to undo. So far so good. Good luck.

inconsistant drying.
There are two sensors located on the top of the blower housing. The one with an ohm reading or no reading is the thermistor. Simply replace it.

dryer blow fuse, was running hot
replaced the above items, dryer worked but did not solve the problem of running hot on all settings, replaced the temp gauge, did not solve the problem. Realized it was probably the electronic control assy. Decided to replace the dryer given this one's age and the ability to get a new one for about $400. Parts sent were correct. I should have checked the continuity of the parts prior to buying the new ones. Probably only needed a fuse.

Dryer not heating sufficiently.
Unplugged the dryer from the wall outlet.
NO NEED to remove the top panel or drum for this!
Open the lower front panel of the dryer by holding down the metal clips with a flat screw driver.
Clean the path of lint removal system including the lint chamber.
Suck out all lint with a vacuum from the internals of the dryer and the rear lint outlet.
Remove two nuts holding the fan cover.
Use a paint brush on the fan blades to remove caked lint and suck out all of the lint with a vacuum.
With the lint removed, use a pair of nose pliers to disconnect wiring to the fuse.
Remove the old fuse with a nut driver and replace with new one, wiring it back.
Do the same with the Thermostat which is located right next to the Thermal fuse in this model.
Put back fan cover and lower cabinet cover of the dryer.
Plug unit back into the outlet.
Run diagnostics. if all parts show working.
Do a test run and make sure dryer hits right temperatures in different modes.

Error code E -1, Dryer would stop after 2 minutes.
Unplug. Removed the lower front panel. Locate identical part inside of Dryer. Used correct socket to break free the two screws. Removed the old Thermistor. Removed wires from old part replaced wires. Replace with new Thermistor, install two screws. Re install front panel. Plug in Dryer. Saved several hundred dollars as Dryer works great once again! Thanks, it took me longer to research the cause than to replace the part!

Dryer would start
I took the top plate off the dryer. Located the circuit board, then removed circuit board. A soldered circuit blew the solder out, so I resoldered the board put it back then tested the dryer and it worked. Easy fix.
