I have a DV50F9A6EVW/A2. iN THE PAST 6 MONTHS, it has gone through 4 heating elements. The last 2 have been within the last month.
I have changed the heating element, and all the fuses that go with it. This last element, it actually exploded the coil.
After changing them, it will do wonderful for about 10 dry cycles then no heat. I have noticed upon occassion, the dry cycle would end sooner than expected and clothes would be not completely dried. I would restart it and it would work fine.
Also, I decided to run the vent blockage test and it gives me a code of C9- which would indicate a 90% blockage but there is absolutely NOTHING blocking it. It has been taken apart, vacuumed out and put back together. External vent and hose have also been checked.
Is this a malfunctionint controlpanel that is causing the elements to go bad?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
The dryer is about 8 years old.
