The drying quite heating.

Took the dryer apart and tested the parts with multimeter. Saw that fuse was out. Ordered two fuses and heating element although only one fuse was bad. Just to help the dryer last longer replaced another fuse and heat element. Parts select had the parts their within two days and it was a holiday weekend. We were amazed. Thanks

Dryer would overheat at all temperature settings

replaced the limit thermostat,thermal fuse, and cycling thermostat. Bingo. Problem solved. Noticed that the back of cycling thermostat had a buildup of lint and I'm wondering if that acted as insulation and caused a wrong reading of temperature. Did not have to disassemble dryer as I could reach all parts with lower front panel removed. To make it easer to install new parts with one hand I lightly hot glued the screws through the new parts and taped the upper portion of new part to bulkhead. With everything lined up and no need to hold the screws I was able to attach using one hand. It was a reach but easily done.
