We have a 5 year old dryer that turned on and heated the cloths, but then stopped during the cycle and won’t come back on. Outlet is okay. Last time I called out someone to repair this dryer, he replaced a sensor and charged $300. Hell’s Bells…I’d just rather buy a new dryer for that. I know a new dryer costs more than that, but my question is this. I’m going to try to open the back and see if anything obviously looks like it went bad.
Tom: He can do that. I don’t think he’s going to find anything. Most of the controllers on the dryers are all where the buttons and the dials are. It’s all computer chips now.
Tom: They literally will take a symptom now and just say, “Well, it says in my book to replace this part.” They don’t even know if they’re good or not. It’s kind of a hit and miss game.
Charlie: Yep. Remove and replace.
