hi, this unit has me pulling my hair... it all started when the unit got lint-clogged and the rear overheat breaker tripped. I addressed the full range of lint possibilities and reset the breaker. Now it is just plain cranky/odd...

After working on it, first load comes out good or close to the desired dryness. second load never makes it to the dry point and it seems to run 'cold'.

I have the manual, have measured the sensors' resistance (both OK), run the test on the transconductance sensor (open, short, and 100kohm read fine), no error codes have shown up during running or on the first diagnostic readout (program 1).

the clincher: if I unplug the unit for 10 or 15 minutes, I can get another load through it, or nearly so.
(remember, when I work on it I have to unplug it and it always seems ok after?)

anyway, I'd appreciate any advice from one with more wisdom than myself. I am suspecting the main control unit but don't want to waste my money on a suspiction...

thanks very much!

that blows stuff into the house, and not recommended. I guess you don't believe I cleaned out all the lint?
total length of vent is 10 feet, well within the spec, and I have brushed/blown/vacuumed it all out.
