The timer was shot and thermostat replaced as a preventative measure
I seriously was thinking about buying a new washer/dryer pair, but after reviewing some online reviews I decided against this. I was pretty astonished when I read consumer reports to find how many new appliances undergo repair their first year. I decided I was better off repairing a reliable unit. Pretty easy - first unplug the dryer. Everything is removed with a couple of screws. Remember sheet metal is sharp, so wear gloves if you are concerned about cuts. The timer is removed from the back of the control panel - even the dial. I also took the opportunity to completely clean the lint out of air passages. A 25 year old dryer is new again.
