I never found a fuse in a dryer. If it's electric, look for a broken heating coil, they're replacable. If it's gas, you have to check all the parts: ignitor must be glowing red hot; flame sensor must be clean; and worst of all the gas valve can go bad.

I have an Amana dryer that is not heating. My husband replaced the thermistor, thermo fuse, & both thermostats. It dried for one load than stopped drying again. What else can be wrong?


Check your a/c line for 240 volts first.Also check the exhaust vent for any blockage from beginning to the end.Also clarify your problem,Is your dryer totally dead,or does the drum still turn.,when you start the machine.

My grandmothers dryer wont heat up. It is a Kenmore, (model) 86870100, with (serial no.) MX1661182. Would like to know how i would know for sure if it is either the element or a fuse.


you will need to open the dryer and look at the element, if you have a meter you will need to ohm it out, but more then likely the thermal fuse is bad. In order to test, test only after test disconnect the bypass, you will need to bypass the fuse: take the two spaded ends off the thermal fuse and tape them together then turn dryer on if you have heat you will need to replace fuse, can be purchased online. eBay is the cheapest but can be purchase from a appliance sales/repair shop, Tim:

I have a front load Samsung dryer. I've had it about a year. Now when I turn it on, it powers on fine, but won't start tumbling. There is no error message. After several minutes, it gives the End...


You will need to check the thermal fuses they are located inside the cabinet.you will have to remove the lid ny taking the screws out of the back then remove the four screws that hold the contol panel in place.
Then take out the screws that hold the front panel inplace,open the door and remove the two screws in the front and the panel will come off.

If you have a multi meter you will need to check the continuity on all the thermal fuses there is one on the blower housing it is black in color and two on the heating element can.Be sure to unplug the unit prior to checking the fuses.

My dryer does not dry clothes


i would start by checking the thermal fuse and then the heating element itself.

I have replaced the thermal fuse but is still taking along time to dry the clothes


The thermal fuse would only reactivate your heating system and is not directly related to the dry time cycle. Make sure your lint filter is clean and the path out via ductwork is free from obstructions ( including the end flapper outside) any retriction in that duct would prolong the dry cycle since air cannot move fast enough thru the system. A quick test would be to turn the dryer on without any clothes in it and check for a robust flow at the exot point of the duct outside... if it is weak, then the blower may be clogged, the ducts may be clogged or restricting air flow of lastly... the heater element may be on its way out... if electric dryer... or gas burner may not be opening fully to allow max flame for heat.. A few ideas to resolve your problem.. hope that steers you in the right direction...

NOT DRYING ONLY ROTATING


Check the thermal fuse at the back. If thermal fuse is OK, then there is need to test Element and temperature sensor with a multimeter. Check also if fan is working.

If your dyrer has a thermal fuse, it will be on the blower housing (front), not on the heat element. It will be either white plastic os a button about half the size of other thermos. The fuse on the heat element will shut down the haet only. Hope this helps!

Dead dryer


usually when the thermal fuse goes bad the dryer will not respond to anything but your job will be to remove the back panel and test the fuse with an ohm meter it looks almost like your old glass auto fuses about an inch - inch and a half except its probablly black or gray or any color it will have a terminal on each end test both sides with an ohm meter if this goes bad theres probably a blockage in the vent that can also cause the heating element to die prematurely.
