Our dryer is acting up. It will run for 2 min then the timer will switch to 1 min and cool down and shut off, it does this in all modes with any heat setting except extra low heat. On extra low heat it will run the full cycle. Looking online seems as though it is probably the thermostat or the thermistor. Hoping for some help I can tear it apart and put it back together but am bad at diagnosis. Any help would be appreciated

Hi Jerry,

I located a thread that is almost identical to your issue here:
Look towards the bottom of that thread and he mentioned he vacuumed out the dryer and it fixed the problem, try that first.

Make sure you disconnect power to the dryer first before you dis-assemble it.

Let us know how it goes.
