Full Answer

Typical replacement parts needed for broken dryers are the heating element or ignition coil. These vary in cost but should not run more than $100. If a professional replaces the part, labor and a diagnosis charge may add up to $80 more.

Thermostats and fuses can also be the cause of dryer problems. The dryer's manual should have a wiring diagram to help test these parts. Replacing the fuse or thermostat costs between $10 and $50.
