I’ll give it a shot. Thanks
[/quote] I would tend to agree with the appliance guy. I would assume most dryers have a preset cool down time, directed by the timer. Once the cycle reaches a point close to finishing, the timer alerts the heating element to shut down, cooling the clothes. 7 years seems to be a short period, for a timer to go bad. I have never replaced one, and I had one dryer I used for almost twenty years.
I’d clean it, as Sam suggested, but I’d be prepared to replace that one. They are not that hard to figure out. You may find that you can do it yourself. Good Luck. I wish I was closer so I could help more.
