After messing with the dryer for several hours and removing the drum needlessly trying to use the dealers schematic as an aid I finally went to the internet for assistance. Apparently I wasn't the only person who had this problem. After reading a frew comments I tested the thermal fuse and found it to be open. After ordering and getting the part in two days later (very Fast) I went ahead and installed the parts with very little difficulty. The hard part was reinstalling the drum which could have been left inplace to begin with. After abandoning the beleif that "real men don't read the directions" I again went to your site and found an easy way to install the drum using a block of wood to hold the tensioner out of the way while I threaded the belt back onto the pully. With a minimum of effort the task was completed in about 1 hour. The entire repair, inluding the detours I took, only took about 2-3 hours total. Thanks for being there when I needed you - - mother-in-law is coming for a Florida vacation in another 3 days.
