My black very cool 15 year old Kithenaid electric dryer stopped working. No power. I tried the timer and it was still clicking like it was working. I opened the door then pushed the on button and heard a click which made me feel the door switch and on button were working. I replaced the cycling thermostat and thermal fuse and everything is fine. I wish i would have bought the other thermostat as I was right there and it was not that much. Dyer is working fine. This site is great. My repair guy moved out of state...I also disassembled the vent tube and vacuumed out all sorts of stuff and vacuumed the motor and all the area I could get to with the back, top and lower cover removed and waxed the dryer.
