On the rear of the dryer is a removable panel. Unplug the dryer and get that panel off. The fuse is a small white part mounted with one screw on the blower housing. Has 2 small wires going to it.

Clothes dryer shorts every time I turn it on

I assume this is electric dryer vs gas. You most likely have a electric heating element that has broken, and the wire is shorted to cabinet. If you can see inside element, you can often spot the broken wire. Don't try to fix element, you can't splice heating wire, it wont work. Buy a new element.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Dryer will not turn on

Sounds like you have a blown fuse. Best way to deter min would be to unplug the dryer and get a look inside. There are always 1 or 2 fuses on or near the control board. Remove the fuse, if you have fuses that will fit test them out. Always use a fuse with the same exact limitations. If you don't have any spare fuses take it to your local hardware store. they can test and replace the fuse. When these internal fuses go out it is usually an indication of a bigger problem and replacing the fuses only fixes it temporarily.
The best would be to get a more reliable electrician to look your machine over.

If an electrician has to phone tech support and still cant fix your problem he better not be charging you.

Dryer wont heat where is the fuse? speed queen

I do not believe it is a fuse, the dryer has a heater coil very much like a space heater contained in an air box inside of the dryer. If this heater coil breaks or burns into, then no heat. My 30 year old dryer has had two That I had to replace over the years. in order to get to this coil, youhave to take the back off.

My dryer wont come on, it is only 2 years old, no sound no nothing, I tried putting on a new plug this didnt help. Any ideas?

First,use a volt meter to make sure you have 220 volts coming to the dryer.
Second,if voltage is ok,remove the back panel from the dryer and check continuity on the thermal overload fuse attached to the exhaust duct. The exhaust duct is part of the dryer. The fuse is about 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 in wide and white in color. It is on the left side of the exhaust outlet.

I have a roper dryer thats eight years old and it wont turn on. it's electric. It seems that the start button may be the problem but im trying to figure out how to diagnose the problem

actualy it,s not the start buttom, better check the fuse , to look on it, open the cover at the back, from there you will see the mechanical and electrical parts, look forthe fuse installed along the Plug wire to the motor

I have a 5 to 7 year old kenmore dryer it runs but does not heat. should i repair or just buy new?

Be sure to check your breakers for dryer some times only one side of the 220v will trip and the dryer will run but it wont heat. The element is the only thing that is 220V. Hope this helps. A 7 year old dryer is not that old most dryers is good for 12 to 15 years.
It would be good to pay a service call and an est. them make the choice to fix or replace
