Well, it only prolonged the life of my dryer for a few weeks. There is a short in some wire or something somewhere that causes the dryer to run all the time. Even when it's off and the door is open. In the five minutes it was plugged in yesterday it got so hot that you couldn't even touch the outside of it.
I can't even tell you how bummed I am. I guess the one sunny spot of this tale is that we just got a tax refund so we have some money we could use. I was just hoping that we could use all of it on finishing the basement.
