But you can't. As I said you are addicted to helping.
I told you I went through that about a year ago. (I had to turn it off) It took everything that I had to go through the withdraw and walk away for awhile. But I did it. Thats why now I only "dabble" a bit. I don't want to get hooked again. :D

Hi Donna – There is something which I would like to explain to you. And I suppose most people don’t know this and have thier own perception of what this site is about.
All of us here that answer questions do this on our own, spending our own time, only to help the do-it-yourselfers. No one gets paid. This is not any ones job. There are not 20 computers sitting in some large hall with technicians sitting there just waiting for a call to come in. Every one of the techs are either sitting at home getting on their home computer after they have completed their regular job repairing appliances or they are in their appliance shop, in their home town and trying to help people out, like you, on their own time.
When you ask a question some one, for absolutely nothing in return, is trying to help you.
If you are going to ask for the help then I feel that you should follow the suggestions that were given to by an expert as that is why you came to this site in the first place. But then to go off in your own direction before and instead of doing what was advised will get people that are trying to help you upset. I know that you must understand. If you ask for advice then do what that advice is. Or don’t ask. (That’s me anyway).
Also when we do repairs we DO NOT fix bad parts and put them back in. We use only new factory parts. That is how business is done and customers kept. That is how warranties are able to be given for one year on parts and on labor. So we (again at least myself) would not try to straighten out a bad part, or recommend it or advice any one to do it. Besides the problem of installing a used or bent or bad part could cause other problems in the machine. And worse case scenario a fire in some ones house.
So if one of the people here, and especially Pegi, says to do it this way, then that’s the instruction that you should listen to and follow. Again, as that is the reason you came here to begin with. You certainly don’t want a fire in your dryer because you are doing it your way and not an experts, do you? To go off on that timer issue yourself and to not replace the element is what I am speaking of.
Again, just my thoughts.

Donna, I've watched Pegi and Gordon lead you thru this repair (no need for me reply,you're in very capable hands) and they are right,you should change that element. If it got weak and touched the canister once,it WILL likely do it again. Maybe with bad consequences for you,and we don't want that. We feel like we know you now and  want the best for you! I ASSURE YOU THAT IF IT WAS MINE I WOULD NOT RE-USE THAT ELEMENT IN MY DRYER. Didn't mean to shout but I really wanted to get my point across.

DonnaDoula wrote: Pegi, you said, "I really just feel like not trying anymore helping people...:?"  I agree with Gordon, if you feel like not helping people, then don't.  You'd be better off not helping, than helping and then feeling terrible about it afterwards if people don't take your advice.  This is one thing that can make people physically ill...didn't you say you had the flu? 
 

Donna, you have dishonored a Master Appliantologist.  This is not tolerated here at the Samurai School of Appliantology. 

You are hereby cast into the Outer Darkness until I hear from Pegi that you have appropriately and contritely apologized to her for your insolence. 

So mote it be.
