Dryer wouldn't start

We tried replacing the door switch first, still didn't start. Next we tried the thermal fuse and it turned on and has worked ever since.

Customer: Kathy from Lilburn, GA

Dryer wasn't heating sufficiently/consistently.

Removed front cover, removed old heating unit, installed new thermostat,heating coil inside the dryer and finally replaced the fuse in the front. The main complication was reaching the screws for the heating coil, not really complex.
