I guessed it was the heating coil. I ordered one and it arrived in three (3) days, which was great. I pulled the dryer out away from the wall a bit and leaned the top of the dryer back against the wall and removed the front cover. it took about ten (10) minutes to remove the old heater assembly. I cleaned the inside of the dryer with a shop vac. While installing the new heater assembly, the only trouble I ran into and took a little bit of time was that one lonely screw at the rear of the assembly, what a pain. I guess I spent a good twenty (20) minutes trying to put that screw in place, while trying to position the back of the new heater assembly correctly. The whole job took a little over and hour and a quarter, and the dryer is working great again. Thank you for all of the tips by previous installers, it really helped me out.
