If you want to make your wife happy, replace the coils on the gas valve. Tom

Thanks great advice!!! I replaced the coils and away it went heating up like my Aunt Gert at a Summer night square dance!!

However, after the wife used it heavily for one day, the next morning we got up and wammo it would not even start. The dryer wouldn't turn, nothing, nada!!! Just a very slight inconsistent buzzing sound (barely audible) from the control box area. Jumped the on switch still nothing, jumped the thermal fuse still nothing, can you make me a hero one more time??? I have four kids and need to get this dryer working!!

The thermal fuse that you said you jumped out, is it the white thin one. Also open the door of the dryer and give me a model #. Also, do this first, jump out the door switch. If it is a 2 wire door switch, put the 2 wires together. If it has a molex plug, unplug it and put the bare ends of a wire in the right hole and the left hole leaving the middle alone, and then plug in the dryer, and see if it works. To get to the door switch, pull out the lint filter, and unscrew the two phillip head screws and then pop up the top of the dryer, and you can get to the door switch from there.

Tom I am sending you one of my boys to help around the farm! I can't believe I didn't check the door switch!!! It must have vibrated off of the terminal. The connection was loose, just needed to have the blade connector squeezed with some pliers to tighten it. Thanks man, you are the best. I get to sleep in the house tonight, Woo hoo!!!
