I had a no heat condition on my dryer, so I pulled it apart and found that the thermal cutoff (352) was an open circuit.

There was a lot of lint inside, and some charred on top of the heater.

I've replaced the thermistor, the high level cut-off, and thermal fuse.

The exhaust temperature running on 'ultra low' temperature current runs around 145, with 'medium' reaching 180 before I stopped.

The heating element is not shorted, and does actually cycle on and off. The thermistor had seemed okay but was replaced anyway.

These temperatures are seen even with the vent disconnected.

Any ideas?
