Dryer doesnt work but i hear the timer working

My Kenroe dryer does not work. I hear the timer clicking but the dryer does nothing. I changed the Thermal Fuse and it worked fine 3 loads. However, it stopped again. I did notice the heat was twice what it normally is. Could this mpossibly be the Heating Element?Somthings making the heat increase and blowing the Thermal Fuse. Please Help!

Change your cycling thermostat. When your cycling thermostat fails, then the reponsibility of your heating element to shut down goes to the high-limit thermal shut off (closest to heat element) and the thermal fuse. Your cycling thermostat should shut down heat element when it detects about 140* air in the blower housing. Yours can't detect that anymore so it lets your dryer heat up and up till you blow the thermal. new cycling thermostat and thermal

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.
