Our dryer died over a month ago and it would not heat up, so we pulled it out and got a used one for $50 to last till my husband got a chance to look at the other one to try and fix it. Yesterday he finally tore it apart, completely apart except for taking apart the motor. He is a maitnence mechanic so he knows how to do stuff like this and has tools to test every thing. All the wires and conections are testing good. we cleaned it out and he tested the motor even b passed one switch that he thought was the problem, but even after everything he did the dryer still won't work. He spent hours working on it and did everything he could to try and fix it and it did no good. He was so frustrated. It looks like the only thing that is left that it could possibly be is this one certain part that costs about $100, which he would have to order online and if it doesn't work I don't know if he could return it. So we are left with a choice of buying the part and hoping it is the problem to fix a 5 year old dryer or looking for a new one. The one we bought used works okay, but is older than the one we had.
