It’s likely caused by a fan. Air circulation fans usually only run when the door is closed or the door switch is depressed. The fan blade could be hitting some built up ice or maybe it needs replacing.

No the element is either good or bad,but did you check it for ground?if the element coil touches the outside metal box the heater will stay on all the time,this is why the high limit or thermal fuse will pop if the dryer is running to hot,could be heater is grounded,a blockage in the dryer or vent line or a bad cycling thermostat,the dryer is running to hot.just check the parts for continuity,remove at least one of the wires on the part you want to check,set the meter on 20k ohms,say you want to check the thermal fuse,pull at least one of the wires off of it,put your leads on it where the wires connect to it,if you see 1 on the meter the part is bad or open,if you see anything else but 1 the part is good or closed,this is the best way to check parts,there either good or there not,same with the element,it's good or it's bad doesn't matter what it reads unless it's a thermister or an oven sensor,then you need to go buy what it's reading at room temp.but like the element you either see 1 it's open or any other reading it's good that's it..then to check the heater for ground,pull off the wires to the element,touch one lead to one side of heater and touch the other to metal box if you get a reading it's grounded,check both sides of heater for ground

You will need to check the tub roller wheels. This is a common noise when the wheel bearings start to ware down. They are not expensive, and you should be able to do this yourself. Good Luck Friend.

You may have a faulty ground but that should have been caught by a good volt meter.
Depending on your supply issues, the board could have been damaged and replaced.

breaker is tripping from faulty insulation allowing current to ground
breakers work on milliamp current so it requires a mega meter to check the insulation
call a qualified electrician to check the unit

Several things could cause that. Heating element, improper voltage, fuses and thermostats, timer, burnt wires, and motor are all possibilities.

Hello Lara. Your dryer does not have a pilot light. It uses a hot surface ignitor to ignite the gas. Unplug the dryer and cover it with a plastic sheet before fogging.

It really sounds like you have 2 problems, neither of which is likely to be fixed, unfortunately.
One is the noise, and it should be a problem with the wheel that drives the turntable.
There is a belt driven pair of wheels, and I think yours is broken. Then, the lack of heating, is likely the "magnetron".
That is the large and heavy unit that makes the mircrowaves to cook the food.
Very few places fix these anymore, because the cost of the parts & labor will be much higher than buying a new one.
God bless our efforts.

1) Have you checked to makes sure all of the connections for the heating element are correct and plugged in?
2) Have you checked to make sure any and all fuses (if any) are good?
3) Have you cleaned the interior of the dryer?
4) Have you opened the dryer up and turned it on to check to see if the heating coil is heating or not?

If you haven't done these go back and do so.

YOU WILL HAVE TO CHECK THE THERMOSTATS WITH A MULTI METER FOR CONTINUITY. U CAN GET CHEAP METERS FOR LIKE 5 BUCKS AT SOME HARDWARE STORES. CHECK THE THERMAL CUT OFF NOT THERMAL SHUT OFF, THE HI LIMIT AND THE CYCLING THERMOSTAT, THEN CHECK UR HEATING ELEMENT. SOMETIMES A CLOGGED AND DIRTY VENTING LINE AND LINT BASKET WILL HINDER IT FROM HEATING TOO.

No model number but they are pretty much all the same you have a failed micro switch behind each filter screen is one rarely see them go bad but filters have to be in place for unit to work, depending on model there are either two or three switches around the motor they are pretty aggravating to get to they are located in the panel below the cook top some models require the removal of the blower motor and housing and depending on the install still my not be able to remove the main panel if you can get past all of this to the switches don't waste time testing them just change all of them they get grease in them which won't allow the contacts to mate
