A thermal link should be closed, it is a one time thermal safety device, too much current/heat and it opens and has to be replaced.

 

Again, I don't know if that is in-fact the thermal link that is being talked about - just using logic of seeing that it comes with the t-stat kit and the problems the ER13 code mentioned about the thermal link.

Thermal link (sheathed wire off thermostat) is closed and seems normal. No burn or heat marks. I ran the dryer and felt the motor spin and could hear air flow. I saw someone else mention lint getting stuck in this plenum assembly below the thermostat but I can't tell yet.

How about fan operation by the t-stat and thermal link?  If fan is working we might be looking at a full on lobotomy.

Well Ive tried everything and it all tests out ok. The thermostat, thermal link (fuseable) , the fan motor, the condensing tank (did have quite a bit of lint but not enough to stop drying), the Heater is fine.. 

 

I get ER13 code about 15 min into a dry cycle.. The wash cycles are all fine, no problem.  If I run the touch-up dry cycle it will error code in 15 min, I feel heat and there is decent fan and air flow, the clothes are even beginning to dry. Ive tried running the quick cycle again right after the Error code and it has made it through to complete a couple of times and didnt error or stop. So Im guessing I'll replace the pcb?  Can i test it? is there more than one?

... but unit does heat up and quits 5 min into heating with the code 13.. 

Heater works, but PCB thinks there's something wrong with the Heater

does sound like a bad PCB

Have you tested to make sure the Heater isn't partially shorted to chassis / ground ?

that would cause it to be ON, when it shouldn't be

If you set the Dryer Cycle for no-heat / air fluff,

is there any heat ?
