Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Electric dryer will not start..gets complete voltage to unit could the problem be the thermal fuse?? model 63102 (door light sensor works fine) when start button is pushed NOTHING happens
Yes there is a thermal fuse mounted on the blower housing duct. it is about 1 inch in length and white with 2 wires on it. if the dryer overheats for any reason this will fail.
make sure the lint filter is cleaned every load and the exhaust vent is clean and not pinched off behind the unit. venting is the most common problem to cause these to fail.
you can get to this by removing the lower access panel and then the blower duct. that will give you easy sight of the thermal and makes it easy to replace.
by the way unplug the unit first!!
