Replaced the heating element. No heat. We discovered the trouble shooting page on the website and bought a new thermostat and a fuse (as an afterthought; and with the suggestion of the customer service lady). We put the new thermostat in and tested the dryer--still no heat. Then installed the new fuse. The dryer works better than before! The heating element may have been going out, because I have noticed for the last year, it has not been drying as well. Now the clothes dry in half the time.
