Cleaned dryer vent. removed dryer heater and discovered the ceramic insulater brooken and heater wiring shorted to heater housing.Replaced heater. replaced cutoff-tml and high limit thermostat. checked machine control electronics assembly. The heater relay was arced and chared. Replaced the control electronic assembly.(I discovered the wiring diagram at this point). I tried to find a wiring diagram on line but, was not successful. The wire from the cutoff-tml to the high limit thermostat was wired wrong on my first attempt to repair without the wiring diagram cost me to buy a control electronics assembly.Other than that the repair was fun.
