Dryer only worked on one of three cycles

I started out by looking up information on the Internet to test the various dryer components (thermal switches, heating coil and timer) with a multi-tester. Everything checked out OK except for the timer. I knew it was bad anyway since only one of three cycles worked. It's good to check everything out while you have the back panel removed just in case other parts need to be replaced. Replacing the timer was very easy. Just remove one wire at a time and connect it to the new timer before moving on to the next wire. The new resistor, which came with the timer, was a different type, but was still easy to figure out how to connect with the provided instructions.

The hardest and most time-consuming part of the job was cleaning out all of the lint inside the dryer airways and all through the exhuast line - which vents through the roof of my house. I removed the lint filter airway from the dryer and found a lot of lint (one pound, maybe) caked up at the bottom, right next to the fan blade which pulls air through the dryer. After doing all of this, the dryer now dries like a new one on all cycles - even the automatic ones. Cleaning out the lint is crucial to helping the dryer not work harder than it has to, which saves you money on electricity (or gas)!

I bought my multi-tester at Radio Shack years ago. It has saved me hundreds of dollars by pinpointing the exact component which is causing the problem. Otherwise, you may buy parts you don't need that don't fix the problem. So, for about $104, my wife has a 22 year old dryer which performs like new and she is very happy about that. That's a lot cheaper than paying upwards of $400 for a new dryer - which we don't need yet.
