Check for a short in the timer or motor probably where the blue wire went to.

Dryer will not start


If you manually turn on timer can you hear the faint ticking? #1Verify breaker is not tripped. #2 Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. On many makes there are 2 blue wires that connect to a white and black "fuse" towards the bottom of the unit. Unplug both wires and electical tape them together. plug in dryer and start the cycle. If it works, unplug and go buy the fuse. Clean lint out of air system from dryer to lint screen through exhaust.

HOTPOINT TDC32P Dryer - No Heat Usual story. Have found the green spot thermostat had gone open circuit but reset it. All three stats including the one over front door test for continuity. Heating element...


Could well be a intermittentt sticking relay, I have experienced this myself, fitting new relay solved the prob, I doubt you will be able to obtain a wiring diagram , in any case , you should not need one.
I would fit a new relay myself if I were you.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.

Dryer just stopped running


2 quick ones come to mind. 1)Check the door limit switch. If it goes open circuit, there will be no operation. 2) Surprisingly, on some driers, there is a hidden fuse in the wiring loom.(referring to the larger driers). If not the problem, does it hum as you press the start?If not, switch off, open panel and trace wiring back and observe for any burned or broken areas.

Dryer doesnt start, 600 series kenmore


Q - My dryer is dead, what could do that ?
A - Common problems...blown house fuse/tripped breaker ( electric dryers need 2 )...loose white/neutral wire...broken belt ( on some models only )...door switch/door switch bracket...*thermal fuse open ( venting needs attention )...broken or burnt wire...timer...motor...burnt power cord/plug...start switch ( especially the ones with a built in relay switch )
* If you find a blown thermal fuse, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first, then it is sometimes a good idea to replace the operating thermostat at the same time. This is a picture of -some- modern thermal fuses.
It doesn't work at all If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Hotpoint aqaurius TDC32p dryer


well there is no diagram but i can advise you that he stats on the dryer are located on the back.. if you remover the panel that protudes outwards. yes the big funny shaped thing at the back.. Once that is removed then you will easily see that the stats are located at the top end with like orange and blue and i thnk white wires going into them .. these are easily replaced and are very common faults,, but make sure you take a visual check of the heater to make sure it is not damaged .. hope this helps..
