You will have to remove the back panel to access this part. Be sure that you unplug the machine before starting. Once the back panel has been taken off and placed aside the thermal switch will be located on the left lower side near the blower housing . It will be thin and long and located near the cycling thermostat that has for prongs on it. On certain machines, the thermal fuse is located in the front. To access this you must remove the kickplate, which can be done by pushing the clips, one on each side jsut above the top of the kickplate, in between the top and abottom portion. The part numbers are the same for either style dryer. To test this part you can either take the wires off it and tie them together then plug the machine back in and see if it starts, or you can use a multimeter and check to see if there is continuity, if there is its good, if not, bad. The thermal fuse will usually be white, and if located in the back, be thin and long with two wires on it, left and right. If in the bottom front, it will be front center on the exhaust duct. Another possible problem is that the door switch isn't functioning properly. You can visually check this by open the door and pressing the switch and listen for a click sound upon pressing and releasing .

Have a GE electric dryer model DJXR433EC2WW. Whenever I select the dryer mode/time option, the dryer turns on by itself without turning the start switch (door closed). The dryer only stops when it...


Hello,

I have seen that in those dryers before and it has always been the motor that is causing it to start without engaging the start switch.

Won't start


if the door is not tight as in you can move it slightly when its closed,the door strike and door catch need replacing and can be done without dryer disassembly at the front door,open the dryer door and in the lower right hand corner theres a small plunger switch push this in with your finger you will hear a click,then start dryer with door open being careful,this test will rule out switch problem,then just replace door parts

The dryer starts up automatically without having to press the start button. will not turn off at the end of cycle, buzzer does not stop, only at the end of one of the 4 cycles.


you have a door switch that is bad, the circut is close so the dryer thinks that the door is still closed. replace your door switch. let me know the model and i will help you through that.

Indesit IC70C Condensor dryer


We experienced a similar problem and corrected it by closing the drying door and then hitting "OPEN" followed by closing. Sometimes we use a tool to release the catch and then close the door. We have not seen this problem return.

Dryer light stays on , won't start just keeps beebing....


Your door switch is broken (push button switch on the door frame). Without the switch engaging properly, the dryer light will continue to stay on and the dryer will not start. You will need to replace your door switch.

Signal


Kenmore 70 series. Model/Stock 66702692 Serial MG2402832

Cycle Signal works but then won't shut off until I open up the dryer door - it just keeps buzzing for hours. Also the dryer will turn on if I close the door ( and arrow is within a number and not on off) without pressing the start button. So if door is closed - the dryer will run or buzz (depending on arrow). How do I fix this?

Thank you
