    Hmmm . Longshot , but check if that model has a 4 wire thermostat by the blower housing . The 2 extra wires are a bias heater , only neccessary for doing laundry in really cold climates like Alaska .

    I never sell many 2 wire thermostats , but I sell a ****load of 4 wire ones .

    We already know a fuse ain't popped if you have heat and tumble .

    You can also check out applianceblog forums .

    Well Mom said it still takes to cycles to dry the clothes, Paul isn't there some thing that you hook up to the dryer vent so you don't have to vent it outside.???Her W/D are in the garage and the vent has to go up the hallinto the attic and about 16' to the outside vent, and I think that it's just too much for this thing to handle anymore, it is over 32 years old, but it seemed like it got hot when I just ran it without the vent tube hooked up when I was testing it???

    Haha... They work great.


    Oh you need the following to work them:

    Oakley's from the early 90's

    A mullet (of course)

    and a big focking blanket to cover them,cause they are ugly.

    BTW-they are from the early 90's :haha:

    There is a kit you can buy to run indoors. Looks like a box, but it has a pan for water inside, thats sposed to catch the lint. I have seen people run a section of duct w/pantyhose over the end to catch the lint.:eek1:

    A little lint box called "Extra Heat" , vents right into the room its in . Works great for heating up the garage , drying the clothes , and adding a little surface rust to every metal surfave you own . If you pay 10 bucks for one you paid too much .

    Your crafty , you could make one with a little box and some window screen , with a trap door some Momma can get the lint out .

    Buy a whirlpool or Kenmore traditional top load with as few knobs as possible .These will be so close to old school you wil find nowadays .
