Day 387 and the continuing saga of my dryer

Several months ago I posted about the saga of my dryer. In short, we got it fixed twice within a few months (it's been 1 1/2-2 years ago now that it all happened) and it has still not been quite right since then. However, it is working and it dries clothes so I haven't given in and got a new one yet. I'm not willing to pour any more money into it at this point. All this time we haven't been able to restart it right away after it finishes, we have to wait for a while or it won't start back up. Then in December, it started a new trick. Instead of shutting off when it got to the end of it's cycle, it just kept going and going until the door was opened. Ok, not a huge deal, just make sure I set the timer and open the door when the cycle is done. I usually do that anyway, just so I don't leave clothes sitting in there. But sometimes I get busy and ignore the timer when it goes off. Anyway, now today it has a new trick. When I turned the dial to start it up this morning, it just started on it's own before I even pushed the start button. As if that was not weird enough, it finished it's cycle, I had heard it stop but had not got in there to get the clothes out yet. After a few minutes, it started up again on it's own!!!!!! I think it might be time for a new dryer. LOL. I'm hoping to get our taxes done soon and maybe we'll get enough back to get a new one. I'll keep you posted on the continuing saga of my crazy clothes dryer!

haha mine here at school doesn't do any of that craziness (thank goodness)'s just RIDICULOUSLY loud!!! So we have to keep the door closed.
It's annoying.

I think you might want to sleep with one eye open. Sounds like the dryer is preparing for a hostile takeover.

Hiley, does it make loud squeaky sounds? This one was doing that originally before it quit. Sounded like someone was squeezing a cat's testicles. LOL.

Linda, if it even moves one inch, I'm booting it out the door. LOL.
