The reported time for repair really should have been "repair abandoned" - I had to return the part - ordered the wrong part -- too small for my dryer. There was a lot of agony over the part number because I had been given a a booklet for a different model than came with my condo unit. Then we found out that the replacement part for my model was backordered, something I had already been told by a local repair service. They said it had already been on back order since April and sounded cautious about an end of September delivery. Since I have been told that my dryer could safely function without the door gasket, I have decided on a "hospice" choice for this equipment which by best estimates dates back to 1993.
