Amana dryer NED4705EW1 heat element turns on when i set the timer but have not pressed the start button yet. I have replaced the thermal fuse already because it has blown out twice and have cleaned out the exhaust so there are no obstructions. The timer was replaced 4 months ago. I also noticed that the heat comes on even if the door is open or closed.
Any ideas of a diagnosis would be appreciated with instructions to fix or where to find instructions. Thank you
