Tip & How-To about Dryers
Here are the things to check :
1. This is likely to be a blockage in the vent system or a bad blower fan. Make sure that there is no blockage.
2. There should be a panel under the front door. Using a screw driver remove this panel and then run a timed cycle. Take a look for a couple of minutes and check if the flame starts then shuts off or if the igniter glows and does not start the flame or if you see no glow on the igniter.If you don't see the glow then the problem is with the thermal fuse, and you will have to replace it.
If there is no glow, then the problem is with the thermal fuse. And it needs to be replaced. You cannot use the dryer bypassing the fuse, if this thermal fuse is left bypassed it can cause a fire hazard. you should not use the machine until the thermal fuse is replaced.
The thermal fuse is part labelled 59 in the schematics shown above.
