So the wife comes to me yesterday and tells me that she has been drying a load of clothes through three cycles and the clothes still aren't dry.
I move the dryer out and start to see what's wrong with it... I do the obligatory cleaning behind the dryer and look down and find a bill wadded up. Pick it up and its a ten. Continue cleaning and find another bill..a twenty, then find another ten..
I'm thinking yeah this will at least help with the parts purchase.
Troubleshooting commences and the result is the heating element has shorted out. Go onto the computer and look up the part and guess what...The cost of the part is $43.00.
So the dryer is fixed and running for all of $3.00.
