For the price of a multi-meter, two #2 phillips screwdrivers and a 1/4" palm ratchet and a 1/4" six point socket and a $40 thermostat kit I have restored function to our dryer.
And I had the tools on hand already, so we don't even count those as a cost to this job because they have become amortized.
A service call is $75 minimum plus parts.
I think I need a beer and a lap dance since I can now afford it!
Or just not spend the money and be prudent...
