thanks for the tips on how to download pics. Photobucket was not the friendliest to use......

Here are 3 pics of the dryer, including the questionable model #.

On your model number.............you have  M#  110.8476291......I could not find any thing................BUT If you change the 8 to a 6.....M # 110.6476291 , Does that one fit your model??????..........The first 5 numbers after the dot is the Sears stock number, most of the dryer stock numbers  that I found start with a 6.................Plus a smudged 6 could pass for an 8............

Hmmm, possibly. Im heading there tomorrow. Shall check this out....thx.

Is the Lint filter on top of the cabinet or inside of the door?  Or better yet, a good picture of the inside/outside of the machine may help determine a similar model#

Lint filter is on top.  Havent been back over there yet, customer is not in a big rush. Weather is not the best up here now. Was watching shingles flying off the building outside last night. Wicked wind!!

Does the customer get the same results when using in timed dry as automatic cycles?  If so, the moisture sensors, wouldn't be in play here.  

Any play in the blower wheel, i.e. stripped out)?  Door seals, sealing well?  What do(es) the heater(s) ohm out to?  Any lint built up in the vent screen area?  When you open the dryer up, how much lint build up do you find?


Also, the vent hose from the dryer to the wall.  How long is the dryer vent run?  How many 90* turns are there?  Vents should be 4 inch smooth walled, no longer than 25 feet subtract 5 feet for every 90 degree turn.

Took a quick look when we were there, wiring a stove receptacle for him. Ducting is one 90 degree bend up, about 7 feet, then another 90 bend out the exhaust. I think ducting was ribbed. Elements were drawing 22 /23 amps. Lint screen was clear. Will further investigate in timed dry cycles and door seals.  :thanks:
