Thanks that looked like it. Was poking around took back cover
off...grabbed the exaust hose...heard swishing around like loaded with
water...guess what it was. Went outside...vent was clogged with animal
hair (2 dogs and three cats). Cleaned out the vent and in the process
of retightening the vent , snapped one of the plastic connecters the
screw goes in, so have to buy one of those outside vent covers...so no
biggy. Will see if this fixed the problem. Thanks!
I have seen a similar problem where the heating coils were concentric and
when the heater turned on the coil expanded and shorted out.
Then it would cool and come back on for a while.
We repositioned the coils so they could not touch when it heated.
Lint clogging the vent. Reduced air flow.
The last call I got for "yes, it's heating but it takes forever" I found a
burnt wire. Electric dryer. I repaired the burnt section of wire, and a
roller that wasn't working right.
