Best guess after looking up information on the Internet was a bad heating element. We also cleaned the lint and cleared the vent. Several sites gave us enough information to locate the heater assembly. After inspection, found nothing wrong with heating coil, which left the thermostats to test. My friend rigged a continuity tester from a flashlight and one of the thermostats was bad. The PartsSelect people got us the right parts, which arrived on Tuesday! Installation went smoothly except we had instructions for only one of the parts. The instructions left us baffled (and I am a tech writer). We reassembled the dryer and pushed the button. It worked and we could feel heat! Not bad for two computer techies
