Ah, Murphy's law. The extended warranty I paid for expired in Dec, today, 5 minutes after throwing in a load of wet clothes the dryer made a clong noise louder enough to scare the cat. It shut off, and smelled like something was burning. I shut if off totally, unplugged it, and didn't like how hot the outside felt. I stupidly, opened the door not thinking, I could had had a real bad hair day, but thankfully, it was just scalding heat coming out and not flames. What happened? A belt? ?
