Hi Carl,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

From your description the most likely cause of this problem is the element. If the dryer is running the thermal fuse is not the problem and if the thermal cut-off opens it will not heat again. Sometimes an element will break but the coil still touches and it will heat until the coil separates and then stop heating till the coils cool down and touch again. You might want to visually check the heating element for this problem. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

You can run the dryer with the vent off and see if the element stays on any longer. A restricted vent might cause the hi-limit thermostat to short cycle the element.

If the element is losing voltage and short cycling then the problem can be with the control or hi-limit thermostat. The remaining checks will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have a meter and are confident in your ability to safely perform these checks, reply to this post and I will be happy to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or to purchase any parts needed; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance, include more details in a reply to this post.

From the description you give I suspect the belt broke.

This dryer has no belt switch to shut it off if the belt breaks.

The motor seems to be running since you feel warm air blowing out the back.

The image below will help you check and replace the belt it you need to. You can lift the top and if you don't see the belt then it�s broken.

The belt 341241 can be obtained from the following site: Sears PartsDirect .

I hope this information is helpful to you. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

A:

I understand your concern with your dryer. Replacing the drum support rollers would normally take care of the thumping noises especially once the dryer warms up. I know at one time or two that some of the new drum support rollers where too soft causing a flat spot on the roller while the dryer is not being used from the weight of the drum. The flat spot would cause the drum to make a thumping noise when the drum passes over the flat spot. Warn support roller axles can also cause play between the roller and shaft which can cause noises. You may have also installed some faulty drum rollers too or there could be some sort of substance in the groove of the drum where the support rollers make contact or the thumping can be caused from the weld seam of joining the drum together.
