I have an old GE dryer Model # DDE 6500 GBLAD serial # TD2 49677G. It runs but won't heat. My wife thinks it was intermittent before now. I have to either have it fixed by Saturday or buy a new one according to my wife. I can't really afford a new one at this point, so I hope to fix it unless you guys think I'm better off buying a new one.
I've done a little research here & am pretty sure it's not my power source. I have already disassembled the dryer thanks to this site & the element doesn't looked charred anywhere. I strongly suspect the problem to be the red switch that I'm pointing to in the attached pic. It seems to make a clicking noise when I bump it. I'll probable replace the belt as well. I would like to use the process of elimination, starting with the cheaper items. I'm no good with electricity & don't even know how to use an amp meter although I believe I have one. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
