For information, that is, and hopefully some that will save me a major purchase. My electric dryer isn't working the way it should. And hasn't for a while. It's only about 5 years old ,and it doesn,t heat properly. It has been doing this, or not doing it, for more than a year already. I have a trusty repair man, whom I really like, and he has given it his best shot several times. It does not heat right. First the auto sense cycle just wasn't getting the clothes dry, no problem, i used the timed dry. Then it was taking almost 2 hours to get a load of bath towels dry, beyond ridiculous. So he replaced the thermostat, worked for a couple months, back to damp clothes. Then he replaced the timer, even tho I had checked to make sure that 1 hour on timed dry was really running for 1 hour. That didn't help. Then he (bless his soul) took the dryer home with him, which is his shop, (this is a Small Town!) and checked the wiring. Found some loose connections, worked for a couple months, and again, damp clothes! I admit, I do 5 or 6 loads of laundry mostly 6 days a week, maybe I'm just expecting it to last longer than it will, but really! 5 years?! So, I will be spending the weekend surfing around appliance boards, to see if anyone else is having this problem. I really don't want to have to buy another dryer, but it will soon be way to cool for the clothesline. BTW, I LOVE my clothes line! It saves me more than $40 a month not to run the electric dryer, and I just love the way things smell fresh off the line. I'll let you know what happens.
